The Michigan Sheriff’s Association and State Farm Insurance Agency recently received a grant for the simulator.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office will be offering sessions for parents to bring their children ages 15-18 to provide them with realistic driving training. This training does not count toward any type of state licensing; however, it provides a chance to give teenagers a safe environment to practice their skills.

Sessions will be available from 6-9 p.m. Feb. 13–16. Sessions will last approximately 30 minutes.

Call 616-786-4189 to register for the event, but that’s not required. Sessions will be available on a first-come basis.

Parents are welcome to be present while their child is participating in their session.



May we have some of the elderly give this contraption a shot? To witness whether or not they have the ability to beat the 20 mph mark or see street signs.
