Beach Driving Clinic

Beach driving has been part of the Delaware Seashore tradition for years, however many drivers are uncertain when it comes to driving off the road and onto the sand. For these people, the Beach Driving Clinic is here to help. This program will outline park rules, licensing and equipment requirements as well as driving techniques to get drivers ready for beach-driving on their own time. Participants with proper vehicle surf tags and safety equipment will have the opportunity to practice their beach driving under instructor guidance.

Vehicle surf tags are available at the museum gift shop with vehicle registration and a fee. Safety equipment includes a tow rope, a shovel, a 16” x 16” x ½” board, and a tire gauge. This program is $5 and pre-registration is required. 

This program meets at the Indian River Life-Saving Station Museum, which is located 3.5 miles south of Dewey Beach and 1.5 miles north of the Indian River Inlet Bridge. For more information or to register, please contact the Indian River Life-Saving Station at (302) 227-6991 or at
