As a parent, you are your children’s most trusted source of support, guidance and discipline. When it comes time for them to learn to drive, you’ll want to send them out on the roads with the knowledge and confidence to be safe, skilled motorists. We recommend you prepare by reacquainting yourself with graduated driver licensing laws as well as the leading causes of teen crashes; emphasize defensive driving and always looking ahead for potential dangers; and be selective in correcting serious errors while saving small stuff for the lesson review.
