Safe Driving Competition
Parents and driver education teachers have a great responsibility when it comes to teaching teens the skills and information they need to get behind the wheel as independent drivers.
To recognize the end result of these efforts, students who are considered to be among the best drivers at their schools are put through a series of written, perceptual and driving tests at Safe Driving competitions held on a regional level, with the opportunity to move forward to the statewide contest.
PennDOT partners with the Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association (PMTA), law enforcement and other safety-related organizations to host the Pennsylvania Safe Driving Competition for Youth every May at the Radisson Penn Harris in Camp Hill.
PMTA sponsors scholarships for the top three finishers in the statewide competition. The first-place winner receives $5,000, while second and third place receive $3,000 and $2,000 respectively.
