Tips for Parents of New Drivers

February 5, 2017

So, it's finally time for your child to start driving! Understandably, as a parent, you're nervous. You play an important role in teaching them to drive safely. Our driving school Burnaby has put together some tips to help ensure your child stays safe on the road.


1) Teach your child about the safety and responsibility surrounding driving

Our Burnaby driving school recommends informing your child of the consequences of unsafe driving, such as statistics linking distracted driving with fatal accidents, fines and penalties, etc. Ensuring that your child knows about the consequences surrounding unsafe driving will remind them to be cautious behind the wheel.


2) Be a good role model

During our Class 5 driving lessons in Burnaby, we notice that teens tend to pick up driving habits, both good and bad, from their parents. We recommend setting a good example by always buckling up, avoiding using electronic devices while driving, watching your speed, obeying traffic laws, and using your turn signals. 


3) Be involved and teach them defensive driving

Talking with your teen while driving is the best way to bring their attention to possible hazards. Point out pedestrians, school zones, unsafe drivers, road signs, and other vehicles to teach them how to be on the look out for hazards. 


If you feel like your teen needs a brush up lesson or two, give our Burnaby driving school a call today. We also offer driving lessons in North Vancouver, Port Coquitlam, New Westminster, and Vancouver.
