Parents of New Drivers

Car crashes are the greatest danger your teens face. The good news? These crashes are preventable. As parents of new drivers, you play a vital role in keeping your teens safe on the road. The Teen Driver Safety Research team at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute and others are exploring ways to help you raise safe, responsible drivers. In fact, our research has found that you can cut your teens’ crash risk in half by staying involved, setting rules, and being supportive.

As parents of new drivers, we know you need guidance you can trust. That’s why we gathered the best information from clinicians, researchers, driving instructors, teens, educators, and others to help you navigate the learning-to-drive process and beyond. With an interactive TeenDrivingPlan Practice Guide, Logging and Rating Tool and Goal Guide based on years of research to help you effectively supervise your teen's driving, we will help make this challenging time a rewarding experience for both you and your teen.
