Get to Know Your Car

Every car is different. Whether it’s a sedan with a four cylinder engine or an SUV with a V-8, different cars are going to respond to the throttle and brakes differently. Not to mention every car has different button locations and mirror settings. Getting to know your car can help you to drive safely and successfully no matter where you are!

Wear a Seatbelt

It’s so easy, but hundreds of thousands of drivers fail to wear their seatbelt every day! This is one of the top things that your teen can do to stay safe on the roads. Whether it’s protection from an accident or just helping them stay secure in their seat, wearing a seatbelt is necessary for anyone driving a car.

Limit Distractions
