3 Tips for Parents With Teen Drivers

BAY CITY, Mich. – Having a teen driver in the house can be exciting and nerve-racking at the same time. If your teen has started driving or has recently received their license, take a look at our 3 tips for parents with teen drivers. You may find that by applying these 3 tips to your teen’s driving experience they will not only grow into becoming alert and safe drivers, but these tips may also help you become more comfortable with them behind the wheel.

Take a look at our 3 tips for parents with drivers below:

Start Off With Small Trips
Your teen may be anxious to go on that cross country road trip with their friends, but you know they aren’t ready at first. Start your teen with making small trips around town. Whether they have their driver’s permit or just earned their driver’s license, making smaller trips will get them comfortable behind the wheel and help them grow more confident with their driving. So when you need a gallon of milk from the local grocery store, have your teen drive the car to get there!

Set A Good Example and Good Rules
Your teen will learn their driving habits from you! Set a good example by obeying traffic laws, not using your phone while driving, and always buckling your seat belt. If you want your teen to be a smart driver, then be one too!

Setting your own rules at home is a great way to implement a responsible driver. Curfews and passenger limitations are ways to know your teen is practicing safe driving. Also by having your teen participate in the financial cost that goes into a vehicle helps teach them about maintenance responsibilities.

Get Your Teen Prepared in Case of an Accident
