IMPORTANT: TEEN/PARENT Information

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens.  In 2010, seven teens ages 16 to 19 died every day from motor vehicle injuries. Per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are three times more likely than drivers aged 20 and older to be in a fatal crash. Fortunately, teen motor vehicle crashes are preventable, and proven strategies can improve the safety of young drivers on the road.

Description

Safety Items

Parent Teen Interaction

 

Discuss with your teen the consequences of violating your agreement of safe driving practices. Set Times and curfews that you both can agree on.

Contract between Your Teen and You.

Selecting a school

Making sure “WHO IS TEACHING YOUR TEEN AND THE QUALIFICATION” could be “Life Changing”.

Check their credentials/Reputation

Understanding the process

With new laws in place getting a license isn’t the same as it was 20 years ago. Go to expresslane.org to check for new laws and policies with the OMV.

Being a good example

Teens always mimic what their parents do. Especially Texting while driving “Big no, no and could cost someone their life.”

Coaching

Be patient and understanding with your teen. You were a teen at one time.

Contact Breaux’s Driving School Staff for coaching pointers.

Follow-up with your teen

Don’t be too critical. Constructive criticisms are very important.
