Free Driving Clinics for Teens With Type 1

Text Size:

Are you a teenager with Type 1 diabetes and a valid driver’s license or learner’s permit? Then you may be interested in free driving clinics being offered by the nonprofit Juvenile Diabetes No Limits Foundation.

According to the foundation, “Check B4U Drive is a one-day drivers mini-camp combining effective diabetes management with advanced driving skills.” The program includes presentations about safe driving and dealing with critical situations, a discussion with a certified diabetes educator, and in-car practice with professional drivers learning about hard stops, slalom handling, accident avoidance, and more.
