Check out TeenSafe’s Safety Checklist for Teen Drivers issued for
The 15th birthday is momentous for most American teens as it marks the day they can apply for their driver’s permit. For parents, this birthday may mean a teen’s burgeoning independence, but also a higher chance of risky behavior. But as every state’s driver’s manual dictates: “driving is a privilege, not a right!” Although teens may feel absolutely ready to plop behind the wheel, there are still many rules that they need to understand—and these rules go beyond simple driver’s education.
Safety is the number one priority, no matter who commands the driver’s seat.
While teens may learn the basics of vehicle safety—buckle up, obey the speed limits and follow the rules of the road—driving holds many unspoken safety commandments that are only learned from other, more experienced drivers.
In partnership with Teen Driver Safety Week, we’ve compiled a safety checklist that today’s teens should follow as they proceed to hit the highways and byways. Keep this checklist nearby while you provide guidance and instruction…and don’t forget to buckle up (and maybe take a deep breath!) as your new driver backs out of the driveway for the first time:
