Alive at 25 is a National Safety Council defensive driving course for young people between the ages of 15 and 25.
This 4-hour, evidence based classroom course, helps young drivers to develop decision making skills along with a heightened awareness about the civil, criminal and emotional consequences of their driving behaviors. It is highly interactive and based on facilitated and peer learning principals.
Students work together to better understand why their age group is high risk, learn about impaired and distracted driving, review basic traffic laws, and how to become defensive drivers with a commitment to do so.
Since 1995, more than 1,000,000 teens and young adults nationwide have been trained through Alive at 25.
Alive at 25 is currently in its 4th edition and is utilized nationwide by courts, schools, police and probation departments.

South Carolina’s Success
South Carolina began offering the Alive at 25 program in February 2007. Since then, 100,000 (15-24 year olds) have completed the program and there has been a 47% reduction in fatalities over the past seven years.
A survey by the National Safety Council found that 98% of South Carolina’s participants would change their driving behavior as a result of the Alive at 25 classes.
