Creating a Driver's Checklist for Your Teen Driver

As a parent of a new teen driver, you may have extra concerns before they head out on the roadways by themselves. It's important to keep them aware of the responsibilities of driving a vehicle.  Here is a checklist you and your teen can go over before they take the car into their own hands so-to-speak.

Car Check: Make sure they are driving a car that is trusted and safe. Check tires, headlights, etc.

Car Operations: Make sure before they start the car to get reacquainted with inside the vehicle and adjust mirrors, put on seat belt, etc.

Cell Phone Put Away: Make sure their cell phone is secured safely away from hands reach. Remind them to always pull over to use the phone and never text and drive for their safety and for the safety of those around them. *Parents, this is a good time to install those teen tracking apps.

Check Surroundings: After the car has been started, teach them to be aware of their surroundings before backing out or going forward.

Follow Road Rules: When driving, remind them to follow the rules of the road from speed limits to railroad crossing symbols.

With these extra reminders and tips, your teen is on their way to be a cautious yet confident driver on the open roadways.
