WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Thursday, was day two of the Wakulla County Sheriff's Office Teen Driving Challenge.

Students were on a course set up by deputies and were able to try out driving on many different vehicles to give them a hands on experience.

"This is our way of giving to the community showing them how to maneuver their vehicles," said Deputy Steven Miller. "We got a lot of young drivers we got a lot of young drivers with not a lot of experience, but they're coming out here and we're trying to teach to be better at what they're already doing.
