Ford Driving Skills for Life Program Comes to Sanborn

Sanborn Regional High School was one of two New Hampshire Schools chosen to host the Ford Driving Skills for Life Program this fall. The full program was open to all Sanborn students with valid NH Driver Licenses. Space was limited to 80 students on a first-come, first serve basis. The program ran in ninety minute sessions during the school day on Thursday, September 22, 2011 at the high school.

Driving Skills for Life is a national safety initiative aimed at teenagers who have earned or are about to earn a driver’s license. The program was developed by a panel of safety experts brought together by Ford Motor Company and the Governor’s Highway Safety Association to teach students the skills necessary for safe driving beyond what they learn in standard driver’s education programs. While buckling up and driving sober are fundamental rules that drivers need to follow, this program goes a step further and focuses on four key driving skills: Hazard Recognition, Vehicle Handling, Space Management, and Speed Management. The result is a unique program that informs teens about these skills, which could prevent more than 60% of teen vehicle crashes. For more information, visit

This event is a kick-off to our new program with the In Control Crash Prevention program. Sanborn students are eligible to receive a reduced rate to enroll in this 4-hour course. Parents are encouraged to attend with them. For more information, visit
