The 2018 dates are all Saturdays: March 24, April 21, May 12, June 9, July 21, August 18, September 22, October 20, November 17, and December 8.

The CAT program is a defensive driving and vehicle control program for young drivers developed by the National Traffic Safety Academy. During the one-day course, adapted from law enforcement training, young drivers learn how to better handle their vehicles in various situations. Participants must be ages 16-20, possess a valid Maryland “Class C” driver’s license (no learner’s permit) and bring a vehicle to drive during the practical exercises.

Cost is $95. Participants must register in advance by contacting program coordinator Jessica Beram at JBeram@howardcountymd.gov.
