There are three ways that Level One is priceless for teens. 1. Any non-licensed teen can perform Level One activities and earn the Zone Control Co-Driver License before beginning to drive. 2. Teens currently learning to drive, can take Level One training along with their driver training program. 3. Teens who are licensed, especially newly licensed, can acquire the Zone Control Strategies offered in Level One.
