Spencer Insurance has long been an advocate for the Parents of Teen Drivers. I wanted to put the spotlight on one resource we can provide that is very valuable to the parent of a teen driver.
Have you seen our “Safe Teen Driver Guide?”
Our Safe Teen Driver Guide is a must for parents who are getting started in training a teen to be a safe driver. The guide provides parents a 16 Lesson Plan. Each lesson can be the basis for a one hour driving session with your teen driver. Some of the lessons include tips for teaching teens to drive at night, in bad weather, on city streets and country roads. It also provides lessons on what to do when an accident happens and vehicle orientation and maintenance.
Lesson 12 is a very timely lesson: Driving in Bad Weather. This time of year, with wet leaves and snow, provides a great opportunity for parents to help their teen practice to drive in bad conditions. Many of us avoid taking our teens out in these conditions. Eventually they will need to learn how to drive in these conditions so why not try it out in a controlled area like a parking lot?
The Guide starts with an introduction, instructions on obtaining a PA Learner’s Permit and the Top 5 Mistakes teen drivers make.
This Guide is available to our clients at no cost. Just email or call us for your copy. We will also send a copy to your friends and family. Just pass the information on to them and have them call our office for their free copy. Make sure they tell us you told them to call us.
A parent’s responsibility to teach their teen to drive does not stop when their teen gets their license. Continue to drive with your teen and practice driving in all types of conditions. Make sure they master these 16 lessons even if they are already licensed. Remember, driving is a privilege not a right. Discuss with your teen consequences of their actions which could lead to them losing this privilege. Let us help you. Call us today to learn how we can help.
