TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Young drivers will get the chance to learn what it takes to be safe on the roadway on Tuesday.

KeyBank is hosting the "Key to Safe Teen Driving" program . The free event is open to any teenager with a valid driver's permit or license.

The program will be a condensed version of the Mid-Ohio School's popular Honda Teen Defensive Driving Program. Up to 120 students will be allowed at each event for classroom instruction. Students will also have the opportunity to get behind the wheel to practice wet braking and emergency lane change maneuvers.

There will be a lesson on the dangers of "distracted driving."

The program runs from 9 a.m. to 6p.m., on Tuesday.

Parents can register their teen driver for this event by going to www.keytosafeteendriving.com
