Prepare for the Learner's Permit

We wish that becoming a good driver was simple: Just read the manual, drive around with mom or dad for awhile, and you’re there. That’s just not the way it is. Driving is a highly complex skill, one that takes lots of practice and time to gain experience under varying road conditions. It takes years to become an “experienced” driver. Crashes are preventable. Research suggests clear ways to reduce your risk. Being well prepared for your Learner’s Permit will get you started down the right path.

High quality practice is critical because a major reason why teens crash is their inexperience behind the wheel. Research shows that drivers need a variety of practice in a wide range of driving environments to prevent them from committing dangerous driving errors. That's why researchers at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia developed the TeenDrivingPlan Practice Guide to help you get the practice you need from a parent or other trusted adult. It will help you make the most of your practice time together.

To have your teen become a safe, competent driver, he or she needs to develop critical driving skills and practice them in a range of driving environments and conditions. High quality practice driving is crucial because a major reason why teens crash is inexperience behind the wheel. The on-road license test is not going to cover the wide range of environments and challenges your teen will face during the intermediate period of licensure. It’s up to you to work with your teen to find opportunities to provide plenty of quality practice during the learner period.
