You can take a French class with a seasoned instructor, but without practical application, you’ll never really master the language. The same applies to driving. Effective drivers must achieve a combination of knowledge, technique and foresight to navigate the road with confidence and skill. Teens are eager to drive – but their inexperience and overconfidence can often prove a toxic mix, and today they face more distractions than ever. For teens, driving is especially dangerous, and the numbers prove it.

  • Interactive defensive driving courses reduce the risk of accidents by over 50%.
  • Teens are the most inexperienced drivers on the road and now have more distractions in front of them than any previous generation.
  • Vehicle repair cost & insurance premium increases significantly after an incident.
  • Parent personal financial risk is significant if your teen injuries someone else.
