Hagerty renews license to drive program for teens

Contest offers up to $500 toward driving-training instruction


Hagerty is renewing its “License to the Future” program that offers $500 driver-training scholarships for teenagers 14-18, the insurance and vehicle value-tracking company has announced.

“We’re thrilled to have supported over 65 aspiring drivers in 2019,” McKeel Hagerty, chief executive, said in a news release. “The responses generated for ‘License to the Future’ demonstrate that young people are, in fact, excited to get behind the wheel. It’s vital that we foster this enthusiasm early on in order to preserve the joy of driving for future generations.”

To apply for one of the grants, teens must submit a 1-minute video or a 300-word essay answering the question, “Why are you excited to drive?”

Submissions should sent to [email protected]. Funds for the scholarship program are generated through sales of merchandize at Hagerty’s “Shop.”

The first deadline for applicants is March 31, 2020. Subsequent deadlines for applications are June 30, September 30 and December 31.
