The next Alive @ 25 class is planned Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the Colorado Department of Transportation/Colorado State Patrol building in Glenwood Springs. Class begins promptly at 4:30 p.m.

Alive at 25 is a 4 1⁄2 hour driver awareness program sponsored by the Colorado State Patrol Family Foundation (501c3 nonprofit). This single-class program has proven to be the most effective driver awareness class in the United States and it demonstrates a substantially lower percentage of teen deaths compared to those who did not take this class or took another class.

The cost is $39 for those taking the class to attain their drivers permit. Those who are required to attend due to courts or other authorities have a $79 tuition. This National Safety Council multimedia class is designed specifically for those drivers (or soon to be drivers) between the ages of 14 through 24.

The program is taught by current or retired Colorado State Patrol Troopers. Successful completion of this program will result in the immediate issuance of a National Safety Council Certificate, eligibility to get a driver's permit six months early, waiver of the required six hours of behind the wheel practice with a commercial instructor, and a possible reduction in liability insurance. For further information, to sign up, or make a tuition payment, go to www.aliveat25.us or call (866) 605-3900.
