When it comes to getting your license for the first time, do you remember how you felt? You were probably really excited, and this is exactly how your teen feels right now. With all the excitement that’s going on, your teen is likely forgetting about the positive driving habits you have been enforcing over the past few months. So what are you to do? The best thing you can do is to continue instilling these same habits. From making sure your teen isn’t texting and driving to constantly telling them to drive the speed limit, there are many ways to encourage your child to be a better driver.
As a parent, you have the say-so on how many passengers your teen can have in the car. For the first few months after getting a driver’s license, it’s important that no more than one passenger be in the car at any given time. Any more than one passenger will lead to many distractions, thus increasing the chances that your teen will have a car wreck.
One of the best ways you can make sure that you’re teen is driving safe is by installing a parental control app on their smartphone. In doing this, you can control your teen’s phone so that he isn’t able to use the phone when driving. You can also use the features to locate your teen, meaning you can make sure that your teen is really doing what he said he would be doing.
