Teen Driving: How to begin teaching your teenager to drive

Teen Driving: You are not alone as you prepare your teen to be a safe and smart driver and Gerber Collision suggests taking the first step in preparing your teen to drive – being a role model.

Even though we don’t think our teens listen to us, according to research, teens value the opinions of their parents most of all.  That’s why sharing your knowledge of driving, car crashes, and road rules is so important as your teenagers learns to drive. Be a role model:

  • Always wear your safety belt.
  • Obey traffic laws.
  • Do not use a cell phone while driving.
  • Watch your speed.
  • Don’t tailgate.
  • Use your turn signals.
  • Don’t drive when angry or tired.
  • Talk to your teen about being a safe passenger

Being a role model will not only avoid dangerous auto collisions for you and your family, but the  earlier you address safety, the smoother the teaching process will be.
