The Mid-Ohio School’s Honda Teen Defensive Driving Program and Westfield Insurance are hosting the Third Annual Westfield Insurance Road Safe Teens Program on Saturday, May 8.
Open to Westfield Insurance policyholders, all spots have been filled for this event. The May 8 program will incorporate an abbreviated version of The Mid-Ohio School’s popular Honda Teen Defensive Driving Program curriculum. The teenagers in attendance will head to the classroom to learn about key vehicle dynamic concepts and safe driving techniques. After that, they’ll get behind the wheel of a Honda Civic EX Coupe and run through various drills in the Vehicle Dynamics Center including wet braking, emergency lane change and skid car.
“The Road Safe Teens program is a way we can give back to our community and policyholders by helping them protect the newest drivers in their household,” said Jim Clay, Westfield Insurance Leader. “It’s about preparing our teens for a lifetime of safe driving. The Mid-Ohio School has an excellent program, and we’re happy to partner with them on this initiative.”
Recently, Westfield Insurance announced a 10% policy discount for graduates of this program, the full-day version of the Honda Teen Defensive Driving Program at The Mid-Ohio School or other in-class defensive driving program. The discount applies to the vehicle driven by the person attending the program and applies to any current or new policyholder. Each participant is required to provide a completion certificate or letter from the defensive teen driver safety course attended.
