Teen Driving Practice: It’s Not Just for Summer Anymore!

A teen behind the wheel of a carNow that school is out and your family’s schedule is (hopefully) a little less crazy, it’s a great time to take the car out with your teen for some driving practice. After all, the weather is warm, there’s a lot more daylight, and the roads are dry: perfect conditions under which to learn to drive, right? Right…but there’s more to it than that. Your teen needs practice driving on icy pavement in the dark, or on dirt roads at dusk. Which means summer is a great time for driving practice, but it needs to continue all year round.

Check out our blog for tips on preparing your teen to be a safe driver.

For more details and scheduling, find a training site that offers the course and contact the site coordinator.
