The AAA Resource for Safe Teen Driving

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?
