We’ve created a guide that you and your new driver can refer to, to learn about safe driving habits. We believe by providing you with this information combined with spending real time behind the wheel with your young driver, it will help lower your teen’s risk of accidents.
Did you know, car crashes are the number one killer of teens in the U.S.A. It’s important that you and your teen are up-to-date with the Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) laws in your state, as they are designed to help your new driver gradually gain the experience and skills that he/she needs in order to lower risk conditions before earning full driving privileges.
Research has shown that GDL laws can reduce teen crashes 10-30 percent on average.
Please refer to the "Trustco Info Links" above for GDL requirements as well as loads of other useful information, along with a parent/teen contract you can craft to your own set of rules.
