You might also consider using a driving safety contract between you and your teen. This is an agreement that your child signs, in which he agrees to be a safe driver by following all restrictions you have imposed or risk losing his driving privileges.

Talk It Out
Work with your teen driver to talk through their thought process while driving. Let's not over-do this to the point that they cannot concentrate on driving. More specifics can be found in the book for parents at: http://www.safeyoungdrivers.com/
Helpful thoughts for parents in brief are:
* Drive by example
* Watch your emotional response while your teen is driving
* Work with your teen on various driving conditions, not just dry sunny days.
* Large open fields or empty parking lots are good sources for practicing
Of course, while you're working with your teen driver and their permit license, we have to keep the drivers around us in mind too. Auto Safety Magnets has a focus strictly on car safety for teen drivers, their parents and driving schools. Our magnets will increase road awareness and traffic safety. Help keep the roads safe for you and other drivers. We also invite you to sign-up for our free newsletter covering Driving Schools, Car Safety and Teen Drivers at our website.
