Parents often have a lot of questions about when their teens are ready to drive. This is a personal situation that every family needs to consider for each of their children. Some may be ready at an older or younger age than others, depending on their level of maturity and responsibility.
Before your teen takes the wheel, it is important to discuss not just the mechanics of how to drive, but also all of the responsibilities, consequences and costs associated with driving. Establishing clear agreements about the rules and responsibilities will help keep young drivers safe. Whether it’s your teen or someone else’s, here is an example of a contract to consider. It covers responsibilities, consequences, vehicle cost, maintenance and more.
