Hear from parents of teens on the best tips for coaching your new driver.
Here are some tips to help your teen think like a pedestrian and do his or her part to protect other road users.
One of the most frustrating driving misconceptions is that turn signals aren’t important.
Here’s the thing, though: teens are bad drivers. This isn’t meant to shame teen drivers. Driving is incredibly difficult, so we shouldn’t expect perfection from teenagers who are totally new to it.
Though experienced drivers might be used to them, teens may be shocked by the idea that a person or vehicle just a few feet away could be nearly invisible.
Multi-lane roads – whether they’re on the highway or just have parked cars along the side – may make your teen feel claustrophobic. Yet, staying safely in your lane is a crucial habit for new drivers to learn, so what’s the solution?
Drivers regularly try to save a few seconds by racing through yellow lights, surpassing speed limits and cutting each other off without warning. These habits can make roads unpredictable and dangerous, especially if they rub off on impressionable new drivers.
Safe driving is all about having good judgment, since this will help your teen make good decisions behind the wheel.
While the comfort of the driver’s seat is important, your teen has to ‘know’ the vehicle he or she is driving in order to stay safe.
When we surveyed dozens of teens recently, only a handful even mentioned weather as a road hazard that concerned them.
Whether your teen is just learning the basics of driving or already has a license, this is an excellent time to set up a New Driver Deal.
