The American arm of the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy has just launched an entirely new driving education and driver training program for teenagers at the San Diego International Auto Show.
Beginning with 2014, the MB Driving Academy in San Diego will cater more to the needs of teen drivers as well, therefore.

“Distracted driving is only one of the many challenges that today's teens face on the road,” said Carolyn Duchene, director of the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy. “Our goal at Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy is to develop safer teen drivers and provide parents with some peace of mind. At the same time, parental involvement is the key to avoiding needless tragedies behind-the-wheel.”

Before the actual launch, the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy will work with Mercedes-Benz Dealerships and local schools to bring teen driver safety programs to the market and also offer complimentary Parent-Teen Workshops.

First opened in Los Angeles in 2011, the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy is the first international teen driving school, with the Stuttgart manufacturer being the only car maker to operate a state-certified driver education program in the United States.
