The Traffic Unit is one of the most visible parts of the Clay County Sheriff’s Office. The members are regularly honored for their achievements and traditionally rank high in both the annual Chief Challenge Competition and the MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) Awards, which single out agencies in Florida whose Traffic Units save lives through enforcement, education, and innovation. These dedicated deputies strive to be the best in their field and continuously train both in and out of the classroom to stay current on the most innovative crash investigation techniques and enforcement methods.

Teen Driver Challenge Course

The Teen Driver Challenge (TDC) Course, which is offered at no cost to students, provides knowledge and hands-on experience to reduce their chances of being involved in a crash.

The Teen Driver Challenge is not a supplemental or advanced driving course. It is a defensive driving program that covers various topics, including Vehicle Dynamics, Human Factors, Responsibility, and Liability, Effects of Drugs and Alcohol, Night Driving, and Aggressive Driving. TDC students are required to have a Florida Learner’s Permit or a valid Florida Operator’s License and have the use of an automobile they usually operate during the driving exercises.

Contact Deputy Rob Russell at (904)625-8122 for more information and/or to obtain an application.
