A defensive driving course is being offered to teenagers and young adults at the Meridian Public Safety Training Facility.
Different courses are taught each day, ranging from off-road recovery to proper vehicle care and inspection.
Sgt. Michael Street of the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department says there has been a good response of people enrolling in the course.
"We are hoping by the end of the week they have confidence in themselves and their ability to operate a motor vehicle," said Street.
The course is limited to 25 students and will run until Friday. For information, call (601) 484-6890.
