Description of the Book: “3 Keys to Keeping Your Teen Alive”
This program works with state/provincial Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) programs so parents have the information and tools they need to coach and support their teen drivers at every stage of licensing.
25 structured driving lessons include detailed road practice exercises with instructional videos; critical information about issues like distracted, drowsy and impaired driving plus essential vehicle maintenance and break-down tips.
There are also great tools like Lesson Checklists, Driving Practice Logs, Teen/Parent Contracts, and an Accident Report Form.
This illustrated workbook includes compelling stories about real teens and great advice from subject matter experts so teens can make safe driving decisions. Quizzes, puzzles and Youtube videos enhance the learning and make it fun.
“A car is not a bike with 4 wheels, so a few spur-of-the-moment trips around the parking lot won’t do to prepare your teen to drive a car …
… whereas that bike expanded your child’s world by blocks, a car explodes their world by miles! That distance and independence expose your teen to situations and potential dangers they’ve never before encountered.”
