Tips For Beginner Drivers to Share with Their Parents

Here are a few helpful tips for beginner drivers to keep in mind:

  • Students who drive often with their parents become great beginning drivers. 
  • One year of driving experience is highly recommended before giving new teenage drivers their own vehicle. 
  • Limit passengers and night driving. 
  • Negotiate a contract of acceptable behavior with the new drivers. 
  • Have zero tolerance for moving violations or alcohol use. 
  • Everyone in the vehicle buckles up. 
  • Parents/driving teachers set good examples. 

While there are no guarantees that a student driver won’t make a costly mistake on the road, by adopting a cautious approach with gradually lifting restrictions, the teen driver will have a greater chance of becoming a “safe driver for life.”
