Help Parents Partner With Each Other

Involved parents are your greatest ally in helping to keep teen drivers safe. Encourage parents to partner with each other to share the following messages:

  • Parents need to be sure their teens receive plenty of supervised practice driving hours under a wide variety of conditions while learning to drive, as well as careful monitoring for the first year after obtaining their full license.
  • Parents need to work with teens to set driving limits and to gradually introduce new privileges when earned.
  • Parents need to lead by example. Always wear a seat belt. Don't talk on a cell phone while driving. Don't speed. Follow the rules of the road.

Researchers at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have also recently developed the TeenDrivingPlan Practice Guide, an interactive resource to help parents effectively supervise their teens' driving practice. Encourage parents to use this guide and to share it with other parents to keep teens safe and learning during the learner permit phase of driving.
