Do you have a teenager in drivers training or will be soon?

We have two going through the course now and as a parent, sibling, family member, etc. it is natural to worried at first. As an older sister, they will always be my little brother and sister and can not help but to look after them- even when I am gone. Today we have the technology and opportunities,not everyone has had in the past, to ensure safety especially safety concerns with a vehicle.  


It seems just like yesterday these teenagers were little children playing in the background and/or playing pretend. However, if we like it or not, they grow up faster than we can imagine. Now they are interested in different things and eager to get their driver's license, as it is a milestone in their life. Some are more eager than others, personally I was not as eager to get my license compared to my siblings, but we can not get through life without one- easily.


As a parent/guardian, it will be natural to be worried about their safety and you should. There is so many things that can happen, even to the most experienced drivers. However, you can take precautions to ensure they are safe.

  1. Driver’s Training: If you child is in drivers training, they will learn the rules of the road and the basic information they need to know when it comes to driving.

  2. Experience: Once your child has their pink slips and have the ok to drive with an adult over the age of 18 years, have them drive you to different location. This can be as simple as going to the grocery store or appointment. This will allow them to acquire experience and become more comfortable/confident with driving.

  3. Watch Your Driving: Your child will look to your driving on what is to be expected. Consequently, what you do while driving, they will more than likely copy it. For example, if you speed or text while driving- both illegal, we do not want them to do the same. We can not stress NO TEXTING WHILE DRIVING enough.  

  4. Understand How To Drive In A Variety of Conditions: As we all know Michigan’s weather can change with a drop of a pin, thus we need to know how to drive in different conditions especially snow. If your child has not had experience driving in the snow, make sure they understand how to handle the conditions while being calm- including black ice.

  5. Parking: If you have a backup camera on the vehicle, make sure your child knows to use all the mirrors still. The backup camera is not the only thing that should be used, they need to know how to backup without this technology.

  6. Inspections: Before you child starts to drive around in a vehicle get in inspection by an automotive technician to ensure there is no safety concerns. There can be some concerns hidden by the naked eye, but do not take that chance when there are lives at risk.


We all have been there at some point when we were younger, where we wonder why rules, regulations, etc. of the road are the way they are. However, without these precautions and training there would be more issues on the road. Depending on when and where you received your driver's license, the process was not as long or complicated, but know that the drivers training courses will prepare your child for the road while driving safely.
