Driving On Their Own

You still have many opportunities to contribute to your teen’s development even after they’re licensed to drive independently. Studies show parental involvement and restrictions on driving significantly reduce risky driving behaviour during the first 12–18 months after young people get their licences—the same time period they’re at the highest risk of being involved in a crash.

Keep working on their skills.

When you ride with your teen, make sure they’re following the basic principles of road safety. Check that they:

  • Avoid distractions such as texting on a cell phone
  • Drive the speed limit
  • Drive according to road conditions
  • Wear a seatbelt
  • Remain calm
  • Detect hazards and respond appropriately

Stick to your family driving agreement. You can introduce new driving privileges gradually as you feel your teen is ready. Keep offering constructive feedback and model good driving behaviour yourself.

Before you hand over the keys, also make sure your teen understands your expectations when they’re driving on their own.
