The Ford Motor Company is bringing a FREE training to Arcadia in March!
Ford Driving Skills for Life (Ford DSFL) was established in 2003 by Ford Motor Company Fund, the Governors Highway Safety Association, and a panel of safety experts to teach newly licensed drivers the necessary skills for safe driving beyond what they learn in standard driver education programs.

Morning session: 7:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Afternoon session: 1:00 p.m. – 5:…
