Tools for the Parents of Teen Drivers – Lesson #3

Picking up the keys

Lesson #3

(Parking… and we don’t mean at the drive-in!)

Most new drivers are afraid to park the car because they are not comfortable judging the distance from their bumper to the other car.  If the braking exercises were effective in Lesson 2, your teen may be doubly apprehensive.  However, before they can venture onto the road, they must be comfortable with all the dimensions of the vehicle.

For this exercise practice all types of parking.

Safety Tip:  Begin your parking exercises by using empty plastic trash cans to designate the other vehicles.

 

Don’t forget to show your teen how to set (and take off) the parking brake when parking on a hill.
