How to help your teen become a new driver

You are not happy with the idea of letting your teen behind the wheel. You have seen what happens when parents hand over cars to their children. They drive too fast in an attempt to show off and cause accidents. Many teenagers actually lose their lives. Yet, at some point or another, you will have to give your teen the keys to the family car. They need a mode of transportation when it comes to getting to school or going out. After all, you do not need the vehicle all the time. Since letting your teen drive the car is inevitable, you might as well help them become a new driver. This is how you can do it.

Book intensive driving courses

You are nervous about your child driving a car. As is every parent. Teenagers have a tendency to be reckless so your anxiety is justified. If you want your teen to become a safe driver, book intensive driving courses. As the name clearly suggests, intensive driving lessons are brief. The lessons run 4 times per day, but they can be reduced to 3 or 4 hours. Most people think that it is not a good idea for teenagers to take intensive driving lessons. The reason for this is that things move too fast. The truth is that intensive driving courses are not a bad idea.  They give the best possible education and they help your child become a safe driver. When learning slowly, teens forget fast the knowledge that they have acquired. But when they learn fast, the information stays in their minds.  Hour-by-hour learning is much more effective.

Let your teen be the teacher  

Do you like switching roles? If you do, now is the perfect time to do it. Trade places with your teenager. You will be the student and they will be the teacher. Let your adolescent show your child how to get the vehicle ready to move, how to park, how to make an emergency stop, how to make left and right turns, and on and so forth. Most importantly, avoid speeding. You will see that learning how to drive from your teen how to run the car is fun. As a matter of fact, the two of you’ll have tons of fun out on the road.

Help with driving test studying   

Your teen knows what to do when they are behind the wheel. You don’t have to worry that your adolescent will scratch the family car or cause an accident. But are you really sure that they will pass the driving theory test? The test is hard to say the very least. What your child needs is a study buddy. Have your adolescent review the theory and make them say it out loud. Better yet, quiz them. This way, you will have a pretty good idea of what your child and what they don’t know. Last but not least, try to make mnemonics together. Acronyms are much simpler to memorize than long sentences. Moreover, coming up with mnemonics is highly amusing.
