Here are some of the safe driving lessons you should pass onto your teen.

If you are teaching your teen how to drive, then you want to pass on the habits and skills that will make then the safest driver possible.  When it comes to driving safely, it’s important to go back to the basics.  Here are some of the safe driving lessons you should teach your teen.

Never Drink and Drive

While this goes without saying, your teen should never get behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  You should also remind your child that it is their responsibility to never get into a car operated by someone who has been drinking or doing drugs.

Always Wear Your Seatbelt

When teaching your teen how to drive, you should emphasize the importance of always wearing their seatbelt, even for short trips.  Not only will their seatbelt save their life in an accident, but it will also ensure that they are not pulled over and issued a ticket.

Stay Vigilant

Many drivers, not just teens, become less vigilant as they get more comfortable behind the wheel.  However, failing to scan your area, use your mirrors, and check your blind spots could mean missing a serious driving hazard.  When teaching your teen how to drive, show them how to stay vigilant when they are changing lanes, turning, and even when stopped.

These are just a few of the safe driving lessons you should pass onto your teen.  Want another way to keep your kid safe behind the wheel?  The make sure you have the right auto insurance protections in place.  For assistance with all your car coverage needs, contact the experts at The Schwab Agency in Colleyville, Texas today.
