Parents Can Help Young Drivers Too!

If you want to ensure your teen’s safety on the road, there are many ways you can help. These five easy steps allow you to help your teen learn the lessons that may one day save their life:

  1. Brush up on the current Florida traffic laws. Don’t rely on your driver training knowledge from years ago; laws change!
  2. Remember that you teen is watching while you drive. Lead by example and your teen will pick up on your good traits.
  3. Driving is dangerous—make sure your teen knows this. Discuss the driving-related stories on the news or point out safe driving ads. Help them understand the risks.
  4. Discuss rules for driving and display them somewhere prominent. Don’t forget to include the consequences for breaking them!
  5. Create a parent-teen driving contract with your teen. Both of you should sign this and keep a copy. Take it seriously so your teen will.
