Free half-day driver training programs for some east Bay teenagers take place this weekend to help them make smart driving choices and eliminate distracted driving.

The Bridgestone Teens Drive Smart program combines classroom instruction with hands-on driving exercises to teach defensive driving skills and accident avoidance.

Sessions are offered through the Alameda Police Department at the Alameda Point Naval Air Station with sessions at 8:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, but you have to register online.
