When the time comes for your son or daughter to want to learn how to drive, will you be ready?

As many other parents can tell you, having a teen ready to learn how to drive can prove both exciting and scary.

On the one hand, your teen is passing into what is a ritual of childhood. Yet, they will be out there on the roads with countless other drivers. Unfortunately, some drivers will not be serious with their driving responsibilities.

So, are you ready for your teen to get behind the wheel?

Safety Must Always Be Driven Home

For your teen to be in the safest possible setting when learning how to drive, remember a few key pointers.

First, it is imperative that they know the rules of the road.

When teaching your teen how to drive, they need to have a firm grasp of the driving laws by the time they head out. No, they do not have to memorize every single driving rule. Heck, many adults can’t with a straight face say they know all the rules of the road. What it does mean is your teen must know the basics and also how to best avoid accidents.

Second, do your best to teach your teen about being calm behind the wheel.

It could be early on or later down the road, your teen will get a test from other drivers. The key here is not to fall for something that could lead to a road rage incident.

Tell your teen that he or she needs to avoid confrontations with others on the road. While that does not mean letting others push them around, it does mean staying within the law.

Last, one must avoid distractions while behind the wheel at all costs.

Among some of the more typical distractions would be:

  • Drowsy driving that can lead to more than a fender-bender

  • Being too engaged with friends riding in the vehicle

  • Running late for an appointment and applying makeup and other beauty needs

By noting how important safety is, your teen has a better chance of driving around accidents.

Providing Them with a Safe Vehicle

Another important part of the equation is making sure your teen gets into a safe vehicle each time out.

For example, does the car or truck they will be driving have the following?

  • Tires inflated to the right pressure and with plenty of tread

  • Brakes that are not squeaking and getting down to the rotors
  • Lights that are all working whenever needed

  • Windows void of notable cracks that could impair vision

By making sure your teen’s vehicle is as safe as can be you once again lower the odds of a collision coming their way.

In preparing for a teen behind the wheel, are you driven to make it the safest experience possible?
