Take Control


Medina County local law enforcement wants to help Medina County teens and parents take control by offering advanced driver education and hands-on-experience, which has the potential to prevent teen driving crashes and citations.


Call the Montville Police Department (330) 661.0122. Be prepared to provide your e-mail address in order for waiver and release forms to be provided (must be returned seven days in advance). Space is limited. Medina County residents are given priority; out of county participants are considered as space allows.
