Mopar and Dodge “Road Ready” Defensive Driving Program Renewed for 2016
Last year, the “Mopar Road Ready Powered by Dodge” teen defensive-driving program served more than 1,300 participants. Spurred on by the positive response, Mopar recently announced that the program will return beginning this April.The program will make five stops in four states (Indiana, New Jersey, Michigan, and Florida), and is available to teens ages 15-19 with a license or permit. Participants will benefit from high-caliber instructors and 3:1 student-teacher ratio. The proven curriculum includes a classroom review of core topics, as well as advanced behind-the-wheel training, including accident avoidance (slalom), distraction, panic stop, wheel drop and wet skid pad.
“The Dodge brand wants all drivers to experience that visceral feeling that makes them fall in love with driving, and that includes making sure they feel comfortable in all driving situations,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “The ‘Mopar Road Ready Powered by Dodge’ program gives new teen drivers the opportunity to learn important driving skills, gain valuable experience behind the wheel and fall in love with driving in the process.”
The free program requires a $99 dollar deposit to reserve a spot. The deposit will be refunded after the session, or it may be donated to the non-profit B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe) organization.
