(WEAU) - Experts say teenagers 16 to 19 are four times more likely to get in a car accident than adult drivers.
That's why CVTC and the Mayo Clinic Health System teamed up today to give licensed teens a car control class.
24 teens received class room instruction on the rules of the road as well as were coached behind the wheel.
They were tested on what to do during real life situations like hydroplaning and skidding.
Instructors and drivers felt the day was beneficial.
"I think its important because I'm going to be out on the roads and I don't know what other people are going to be doing and so in order for me to react responsibly and accurately I need to know how to react," said teen driver Tanner Macgruder who lives in Altoona.
The classroom also touched on how teens with a probationary license can no longer use cell phones while driving in Wisconsin.
