To Drive or Not to Drive...

With new drivers on the scene, you may be curious as to when it's okay for them to be driving or when it not's okay, especially if they only have their driver's permit at this time.

When it comes to 16 year old licensed drivers, there are some things to consider before they actually get behind a vehicle. Here are some questions that should be asked:
  • Is your teen exhibiting responsible or irresponsible behavior?
  • Is your teen's brain developing properly? Do you notice any learning behaviors that need to be addressed or evaluated before they are able to get behind a vehicle?
  • Is your child alert enough to operate a vehicle and able to possibly avoid collisions?
It's normal to feel apprehension when your teen gets behind the wheel but there are many elements to consider if your teen is actually able to drive a vehicle without risking injury to themselves or others around them. According to All State, your teen is ready to drive if they successfully completed a graduated driver's license program, aware of and has demonstrated safe driving, are committed to safe driving, and are aware of distracted driving such as not using a cell phone while driving.
