Top 5 Teen Driver Rules - Accurate Auto Body It’s the moment that all parents dread. Your adolescent child has just gotten their driving permit, and it’s time to hand over the keys and put your life in their hands. But before you do that, it’s time to set some ground rules so that your teen stays safe on the road. Of course, if anything does go wrong, the Denver auto body repair professionals at Accurate Auto Body have got you covered. But we hope that the following recommendations will help keep your kid safe and your car dent free.

Setting Rules

When it comes to driving, decisions are often a matter of life and death. It is important to make very clear to your child the seriousness of driving a vehicle and the responsibility which accompanies it. It is important that your teen understands that driving is a privilege and that if they don’t follow the rules you lay down, that privilege can and will be taken away.

Here are the top 5 teen driver rules we recommend you set to keep both your child and your vehicle safe.

  • Rule #1: No Alcohol… Ever. No exceptions.
  • Rule #2: Always buckle your seat belt. Even if it’s only a mile away.
  • Rule #3: No talking or texting on the phone while driving. It’s dangerously distracting.
  • Rule #4: Curfew: The car has to be in the driveway by 10 p.m. This generally helps a lot with rule #1.
  • Rule #5: Limit your passengers. Most states have legal limits on the number of passengers which can drive with learning teens. These laws are for the safety of your teen driver. Encourage your kid to abide by them.

Teaching Your Kid to Drive Is Fun!
Just remember that with the proper instruction and guidance, teen drivers become safe and responsible motorists. This doesn’t mean it has to be a stressful experience for them or you. Once the rules are set, that’s when the fun begins. It is truly a rewarding experience to see your child grow into a responsible driver, knowing that you have taught them how to drive safely.
