Once your teen is ready to drive, you need to have a discussion with them about the rules and expectations for a safe driver on the road.
A written document, commonly called a Parent-Teen Agreement, is the best way to ensure these rules are understood and followed. Our version is called the New Driver Deal and it will help you sort out all of the questions and issues that arise when your teen gets behind the wheel.
The agreement is meant to be a flexible, changeable document with no rule or privilege set in stone. As your teen gains experience, you'll want to give them more responsibility. Or, if your teen isn't following the rules, you might need to tighten some restrictions.
Car crashes are the No. 1 killer of teens, so you must prioritize your teen’s safety; this agreement will help you do it.
