As novice teenage drivers fuel up their cars to drive back to school this fall, state officials are recruiting the help from AutoNation to offer drivers free clinics to increase safety on the roads.
The new ‘Back to School Teen Driver Safety Clinics‘ are being taught by community experts and cover a range of driver safety topics, as well as hands-on car care tips such as jumpstarting a battery, proper tire inflation, changing a flat tire, checking vehicle fluids and safety items to store in a car in case of an emergency.
It’s important for parents to make sure young drivers are ready to get behind the wheel. As students head back to school, @AutoNation USA Charlotte and @NCSHP are teaming up to host a free Sept. 3 safety clinic to prepare teens for the drive ahead. https://t.co/h5uRVJEzEa

Each registered teen driver will receive one mini car care kit with essential items to support their safety and car care journey. A local food truck will serve complimentary refreshments.
