Improving parents' and teen drivers' experience behind the wheel
An engaging, multi-media program for parents and teens to follow during the supervised driving process.
THE SOLUTION THAT MEETS A NEED
Parental involvement in teen driver education has a measurable, positive impact on driving safety. Forty-six (46) states and Washington, D.C. have instituted a Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) law with a requirement for parents to supervise their teens during the pre-licensing phase. The Parent’s Supervised Driving Program provides online, print and mobile resources to help parents teach their teens to drive.
Over a three year period, Safe Roads Alliance, a non-profit organization, worked with DMV staff from around the country and key industry groups: National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA); Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA); Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA); highway safety researchers, academics, behavioral scientists and educators; and, of course, parents and teens to develop a universal, “best-practices” curriculum that guides parents through the supervised driving process. Custom curriculums are available for all 50 states.
A PROVEN CHOICE
“I have a tremendous passion for safety on our roadways, particularly when it comes to our teen drivers. I’m excited to partner with an organization that understands the need to provide tools for parents and their teen drivers to assist their teens in developing safe and responsible driving habits that will stay with them through the years.”
Director, Delaware DMV
“The information in this program provides a measurable teaching tool for parents and an instructional tool for teens; allowing you to make the most of the time you spend driving with your teen. The manual contains information specific to the laws in Nebraska, structured lessons with a building block model and driver safety training tips.”
Governor of Nebraska
“This guide is a useful tool that will improve safety and the driving experience for teens learning how to drive and their families.”
State Senator, Massachusetts
“This guide had all of the tools that I needed as a parent to have the fundamental basics of knowing where to start and knowing the different steps so when we were out on the road together I knew I was giving him the instruction that he needed to be a safe and responsible driver.”
“It is really nice to have a guide and a tool to help us as parents better prepare our kids for when it is time for them to hit the road on their own.”
“I've got not just one—but two teens learning to drive. We love the RoadReady app because it makes it so easy to track hours and miles, determine the conditions in which we need more experience driving and figuring out which skills we should work on.”
Teaching your teen to drive presents enough challenges. With RoadReady, your focus can remain where it needs to be: on your teen and on the road. “Start a New Drive” and RoadReady will log the rest. Download your log to verify you’ve completed your state requirement.
