When teen drivers get a permit, parents spend many hours training their teen drivers. As parents we want to make sure our teens are safe when driving and develop safe driving skills.
Many parents stop training their teen after they get their license. Why??? Summer is a great time to drive with your teen driver to observe their driving habits and help them develop new driving skills. When we vacationed in Maine or New Hampshire I would let my teen drivers take over the wheel while on the interstates and rural roads. We don’t have a lot of rural roads around our neighborhood so having them drive in New Hampshire and Maine sharpened their driving skills.
So if you are down the shore, up in the mountains or in another state make sure you let your teen drivers take over the wheel and get some experience. Help them develop new safe driving skills.
Try this all times of the year. In the Fall we have slippery roads due to falling leaves, in the winter there is snow and ice. Take them out during these times even if just in a parking lot to learn how to drive in these conditions.
