It seems like just yesterday they were taking their training wheels off their first bicycle. And now your teenager is behind the wheel of a car. They are new to driving and can be easily distracted (put the cell phone down!) so be sure to educate your new driver on automobile safety and good decision making.
Teenagers should understand the consequences of unsafe driving- from personal injury to the impact on the cost of their insurance. When it’s time for the training wheels to come off, your teen will know how to be a safe driver.
