Ford Driving Skills for Life hands-on clinics provide the ultimate form of training for young drivers who hold a permit or license. Working with professional instructors in actual vehicles, students and parents learn advanced driving skills in a controlled and safe environment. These clinics provide skills beyond those taught in traditional driver education courses, and are an important step in the life-long process of learning to drive safely.
