FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police are holding the teen driving academy known as "Drive to Stay Alive" again this summer in Frankfort, and the deadline to apply is fast approaching.

The program is specifically geared toward teenagers, and they must be 16 years old or older, be a licensed driver, have good communication skills and leadership traits and have school permission to participate.

State police say the course teaches skills that could save a participant's life, including actual motor vehicle situations and classroom studies.

There's no fee for the program, but space is limited. The course will be from August 28 to September 1.
