In general – start with low-risk situations, and work up to more risky situations. Begin in daylight, good weather and on remote roads or empty parking lots. Gradually move to dusk and nighttime driving, inclement weather and busier roads. Start with basic skills (turning, parking and backing up) before moving to more complex skills. And keep other passengers out of the vehicle when practicing with your teen—neither of you need the distraction.
DriveitHOME™ is an initiative of the National Safety Council, designed by and for parents of newly licensed teen drivers. DriveitHOME™ offers free resources parents can use to help their teen build experience to become safer drivers.
