One out of every two teen drivers will have a motor vehicle accident within the first six months of earning their license. Though our five children safely navigated the teen years, on the way to 2015 homeschool conferences, we totaled both our vehicle and the trailer. While we walked away from it physically unscathed, many teens do not. I can tell you firsthand that emotional trauma can linger for quite some time.
As teaching parents, you choose whether to take on the formidable task of being the primary driving instructor or handing that over to a paid professional. Regardless of your route, be sure to augment the lessons with Roadworthy, an instructional DVD to help your teen driver beat the scary odds. With invaluable tips by experienced accident investigator Mike Pehl, Roadworthy covers everything from the basics of safety checklists to how to deal with hazardous maneuvers of other drivers.
The most critical factor in turning teenagers into safe drivers is their parents. Parents can and should take more ownership of their teens' driving behavior. For this reason, Roadworthy is parent-directed and especially beneficial for parents and teens to watch together. Roadworthy uses real in-car demonstrations and graphics to support and reinforce each lesson. It will give your teen clear-cut strategies that can be used to make him a more responsible and defensive driver. Guaranteed to be an asset in every family, Roadworthy promises that they will graciously refund their money if any new or even seasoned driver does not learn something helpful.
NOTE: Roadworthy is for supplemental driver's training/education only and does not satisfy any state's licensing requirements.
