Boise Police will begin offering Alive at 25, a free defensive driving class, at the Boise Police Department this month.
The goal of Alive at 25 is to lower vehicle accidents involving teen and young adult drivers. The class allows those young drivers who receive a traffic ticket or citation to possibly receive a reduction or dismissal of their charge upon successful completion of the class. Anyone between the ages of 14-24 is welcome to take the course. You do not have to have a learner's permit or a driver's license.
Alive at 25 Classes: The class is four and a half hours long and includes instruction on decision making and responsibility when driving. This course is not a behind the wheel driving course. It takes place in an interactive classroom setting and includes instructional videos and class discussion.
Registration: You can sign up on the official Alive at 25 website https://aliveat25.us/.
Classes are currently scheduled in Boise for:
- Saturday, February 15th at 1:30 pm – 6:00 pm
- Monday, March 2nd at 4:00 pm – 8:30 pm
- Monday, April 6th at 4:00 pm – 8:30 pm
- Saturday, April 18th at 1:30 pm – 6:00 pm
- Monday, May 4th at 4:00 pm – 8:30 pm.
We are located at 333 N. Mark Stall Pl. Boise, ID 83704. Additional classes will be offered on a monthly basis and the class schedule is subject to change due to number of student enrollments.
Alive at 25 classes are also offered in several other cities in Idaho. You do not have to take the class in the town where you live or where you received the citation.
If you end up being tardy or late, then you will need to reschedule for the next class.
Certificate of Completion: Upon the successful completion of the class you will receive a Certificate of Completion. It is up to you to present that certificate to the court. The class does not guarantee that your ticket or charge will be reduced or dismissed. The prosecutor in your case will make that decision based upon the circumstances of your citation and your prior driving history.
