Once your teen gets their license, they can finally drive on their own. But cautious parents will wonder: How can I help keep my teen safe when I’m not in the vehicle?
You may not be in the car with them to offer assistance and advice, but you can still set limits and encourage safe driving behavior. Here are four things your teen driver should keep in mind before they get behind the wheel without you.
Nothing will help your teen driver gain confidence and skills faster than actually driving, but whether you are with them in the car or not, their safety should always come first.
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.
