Tips for Teen Driver Safety #MyTeenDriver #SafeDriver #MyDiscountTireThanks to the partnership I have with Discount Tire on this post, I am sharing tips to keep our teen drivers safe.

Having a teen driver might just be one of the scariest experiences that a parent can go through. There are so many factors to take into consideration and teaching your teen to drive safely may provide just the exact peace of mind that you need to get through those teen years.

DISCOUNT TIRE’S TEEN DRIVING SAFETY CAMPAIGN

Being a new driver is exciting and it also comes with a lot of responsibility.  As the parent of a newly driving teen, there are several things that you can do to prepare and teach your teen to drive.
1. Sign your teen up for safe-driving course.
Check the Internet in your local community and you can find a plethora of classes available. Many insurance companies even offer discounts to teens who have completed the course.
2. Make certain that your teen drives the safest car available.
This is something to definitely consider. Check safety ratings and cars and get the absolute safest car that you can afford.
3. Always know where they go.
My kids have no choice but to let us know where they are all times. They are required to check in and to let us know when they get home.
4. Set a good example.
Have problems with road rage? Drive too fast? Well reign it in and remember that you set the example for your children.
5. Set the rules.
Letting your teen know the rules upfront is always a good thing. In order to keep driving priveleges, our teen must maintain an A-B average in school, must obey all driving laws (there are devices that track speed) and must always be home before curfew.
6. Teach your teen to check their tire air pressure at home as well as at a local Discount Tire.
This will definitely give you peace of mind that they are driving with safe tires.

    My kids have a ways to go, but I definitely want them to be safe when the time comes.

  2. I don’t have kids, but you can be darn sure I want all the teenagers on the road around me to know what they’re doing. I love this!

  3. Amy Desrosiers

    One thing I am not looking forward to is my kids driving. I think any company who helps the matter is amazing since it can be stressful.

  4. Daisy

    I didn’t know that they gave free tire inspections. I need to stop by and have that done.

  5. Although my kids are not ready to drive, I know it will be here before I know it. I agree, that is a super scary time and these are great tips!

  6. I seriously don’t look forward to having a teenaged driver! And sadly that is only a few years away. It makes me nervous. I need to save these tips to refresh when my oldest reaches driving age!.

  7. I have about 4 years left to worry about this. I am worried about it though. Teen drivers AHHH!

  8. Ah, the first license and car. What an experience! Safety for teen drivers should be the #1 priority for them and their parents when it’s that time.

  9. I have a 4 year old. But I took a younger cousin of mine out for some driving practice, and let me tell you… I see why my parents were so nervous when they first taught me to drive! It’s very nerve wracking not to have the control in a vehicle! Great blog post!

  10. I hope I remember these tips when my kids start driving! Love that they offer a free tire checkup.

  11. I have a long time before my children are behind the wheel! But making sure they are safe when that time comes will be a number one priority!

    I just about had a heart attack when my step-daughter grabbed the keys last time she visited. HA! I am always afraid of every what-if. This is a great post though… I will totally be sending my kids to every class available.

  13. Sabrina @ Dinner, then Dessert

    Teens are so much more likely to cause accidents because of their inexperience! You have to do everything you can to prepare them!

  14. I am so glad I have about 5 more years before my daughter can drive. But I will definitely pass this on to my sister. My niece is 14!

    What a great way to insure safety on the road. Teenage drivers scare me. haha

  18. It’s definitely a good idea to create the safest possible driving conditions for your teen. Tire pressure is a big part of that.

  19. Kids driving is scary for a parent, no matter how old they are. These are great tips to make it easier.

  20. With as fast as the years pass, Red will be driving before I know it. At least I have some time to prepare my nerves. Chase was asking the other day what we planned to do for his first car!

  21. Wow, this is awesome! I wish I had something like this when I was learning to drive.

  22. Catherine S

    These are great tips. I don’t know who is more nervous me or my son when drives. I need to work on setting a better example. I seem to have lead in my foot.

  23. The thought of my kids driving gives me a full on panic attack, but with our oldest being 11, it is something we will need to consider in the near future. I love the idea of a safe driving course along with those apps that restrict phone usage while a vehicle is in motion.

    You can never be too safe when driving. Especially when you are learning.

  25. I love that Discount Tire is doing this teen driver safety campaign. With so many distractions nowadays, we need to make sure our teens are as safe as they can be!

  32. My Daughter just got her drivers licence. She did a drivers program and i feel so much safer because of it.

  33. I talk to my 6 yo about rules of the road all the time. I’m hoping it will soak in over the next 10 years… Great tips.
