Safety Tips for Teen Drivers

I have partnered with with Discount Tire  to bring you this post and share my tips to help keep teen drivers safe!

SAFETY TIPS FOR TEEN DRIVERS! Driving is a big responsibility, I have 3 young drivers in my own family... and here are my favorite tips to keep them safe!

Safety Tips for Teen Drivers

Pin it to SAVE it and SHARE it!

Follow Spend With Pennies on Pinterest for more great tips, ideas and recipes!

Add your own great tips in the comments below!

As most of you know, I have have watched 3 of my own babies grow up and get behind the wheel!

Driving is a very serious responsibility and we have spoken to all 3 of our young drivers extensively about road safety and vehicle maintenance.  All of the young drivers in our household know that driving is a privilege and not a right.

Your safe journey begins here…  

1.  Distracted Driving

Our kids know that texting, checking messages and putting on new music while driving is NOT allowed. This is a big one in our family with a zero tolerance policy. While you may want your teen to have a cell phone for safety it’s a good idea to ensure they understand the rules about cell phone use in the car. A great rule is that they must keep their cell phone in the console while the car is moving.

2.  Vehicle Maintenance

If your child is driving, it’s important that they learn and understand proper vehicle maintenance. Did you know that failure to maintain the correct air pressure in your tires can result in poor gas mileage, reduce tire life, affect vehicle handling, and cause vehicle overloading?

A big part of driving a vehicle is making sure it’s road ready including checking things like tire pressure and oil. You can actually head to Discount Tire for a totally FREE Tire Inspection which is a great way to get your new drivers comfortable with maintenance. SAFETY TIPS FOR TEEN DRIVERS! Driving is a big responsibility, I have 3 young drivers in my own family... and here are my favorite tips to keep them safe!  More here: http://www.spendwithpennies.com/safety-tips-for-teen-drivers/

Let then know how to check their own tires quickly and easily at home (you can find an easy video to share here).

A few things your teen should know:

  • How to check Tire Air Pressure
  • How to properly & safely gas up
  • What each light on the dash means
  • How to check their oil

This will not only show them proper maintenance but reinforces the responsibility that comes along with driving.

3.  Vehicle Safety

You’ll want to ensure that your child is driving a safe vehicle. It does not have to be brand new, sleek or even the least bit cool BUT it should be a safe and reliable car that you can both feel good about.

4.  Responsibility

I touch on this topic again because driving is such a huge responsibility in so many different ways!  In addition to vehicle maintenance above, you might like to consider letting your teen take at least some financial responsibility for driving.  We expect our drivers to pay for gas, oil changes and/or car washes.  Kids who have to pay for their own vehicles and/or maintenance will respect the privilege of driving.  A quick reminder that correct tire pressure can help with fuel efficiency… stretching those dollars from a part time job.

5.  Friends on the road

It is understandable that if your kid is the one with wheels, their friends will want to grab a ride. If your child is a new driver, consider a friends-free probation period  (each of our kids was required to drive 3 months with a perfect record before ANY friends were allowed in the car). Again, we had a serious discussion about behavior, and the danger of being distracted. You may consider a rule limiting the number of friends in the car at a time… or that they may only have friends in the car with permission.

6.  Defensive Driving

Teach your kids to be defensive drivers.  I often remind them that I am not just worried about them on the road, I am worried about the car next to them with the texting driver.  Teens can often be in their own little world and may not always be alert to their surroundings.  Model and teach defensive driving techniques, teach them to be aware and anticipate what is coming on the road ahead of them.  Discuss signs that other drivers may be distracted.

Teaching them the basics and modeling expectations for the car and driving is all that you can do to prepare them and then put your trust in your teen to do the right thing. If you can’t trust them, then they may just not be ready.

Have honest and straightforward conversations with your child about safety and responsibility. Do not lecture or preach but explain the serious and frightening implications of bad driving habits. Also, be honest about your own mistakes. Of course, also serve as a good role model of safe and responsible driving.

Teach them never to drive when they don’t feel comfortable. Inclement weather, bad traffic or finding that they are in an unfamiliar area are all great reasons to STAY PUT! In addition, if they are extremely tired or have drank even one drop of alcohol, they should know never to get behind the wheel of a car.

Hopefully some of these tips help keep your young drivers safe on the road!

Like I said, I could go on and on singing the praises of My #1 Survey.

Oreo Blizzard Worthy

Are you OREO Blizzard Worthy?

Win one of 200 DQ Gift Cards!

Who is Oreo Blizzard Worthy?  If you’ve ever wanted to say thank you, I love you, you’re the very best… then you already understand what Oreo Blizzard Worthy is!!

Oreo Blizzard Worthy

–> Enter on Facebook <–

Win one of 200 DQ Gift Cards!

We love DQ Oreo Blizzards (and who doesn’t’?).  Nothing better on a hot summery day than creamy ice cream all loaded up with Oreos or even yummy birthday cake flavor!!  But…. are you worthy?

My daughter is definitely #OreoBlizzardworthy and I’ve nominated her for being a team player both off and on the field!  Check out my nomination here!  She’s been so extra helpful at home and worked hard at practice!  This pic is of her this week right after she scored her first goal (after 4 months)! A Blizzard date with mom would be the perfect reward since she’s a DQ fanatic!

Nominate on Facebook or Twitter

Blizzard is a definite favorite in our household (Oreo tops our list) and if you’re looking for a way to let someone know they’re worthy… this is the magic!
DQ Canada is giving away 200 gift cards this month for $10 each (that’s two Oreo blizzards!)!  What an amazing way to enjoy your summer!  It’s super fun and easy to nominate someone you think is Oreo Blizzard Worthy… for ANY reason!  Did they make you laugh so hard you couldn’t stand?  Did they help a neighbor or work study extra hard for a test?  Did they brush their teeth without being told?…. ALL of these things are totally Oreo Blizzard Worthy… so hop on over to Twitter or Facebook and take a few seconds to tell DQ why your nominee is Oreo Blizzard worthy any they could win Blizzards for two! Not only that, but three (3) lucky nominees will be rewarded with an DQ Oreo Blizzard Party at their local Dairy Queen.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Dairy Queen Canada. The opinions and text are all mine.
