|Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens, killing nearly 6,000 teens annually. TeenDriving.AAA.com is a great resource for parents and teens to learn safe driving skills.|
Nothing in your life as a parent is more nerve-racking than the day you hand over the car keys to your teen for the first time. Luckily, AAA's TeenDriving.AAA.com website helps prepare you—and your teen—for the road ahead with valuable teen driving resources.
Before They Get in the Driver's Seat
Your teen has been learning from your example for years, and driving is no exception, so be a good driving role model. Always wear your safety belt, obey traffic laws, don't use a cell phone while driving, and utilize your turn signals. Allotting time each week to supervise your teen's driving is key to ensuring they become a safe, courteous driver. Also, make sure you understand your state's licensing processes that your teen will have to go through.
Some of the biggest headaches associated with a new teen driver are the costs. For example, when does your teen need to be insured?
TeenDriving.AAA.com is a go-to resource for everything parents need to know, from when your teen can get a learner's permit to cost-saving strategies to lower insurance premiums.
The New Driver
Your teen may feel that they're on the fast track to independence, but it's still important for you to be in the driver's seat to safety, enforcing the rules when it comes to your teen's driving privileges.
