This eight-hour, highly interactive course engages students in relearning road rules along with exercises designed to help them understand the connection between choices and consequences and helps them develop a plan to change their driving choices and behaviors.
Through small group discussion and active dialogue between students and instructor, this course will influence and challenge participants to change their behind-the-wheel behaviors and attitudes so they choose to drive safely, responsibly, respectfully and lawfully.

In a study conducted by the Colorado State Patrol in 2003, of 1000 random Alive at 25 graduates (500 voluntary and 500 court ordered), 89% of the respondents indicated they believed they would be a safer driver as a result of taking the class and, 92% of the respondents identified that they believed the class helped them improve their driving knowledge and skills.
In 2008 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that 17.40 per 20,000 drivers ages 15 - 24 die each year while Colorado Alive at 25 graduates died at a rate of 6/20,000 drivers killed each year. Comparing Alive at 25 drivers to NHTSA drivers, Alive at 25 graduates were 66% less likely to be killed in a crash before age 25.
