Teen Safe Driving
Make an Agreement with your Teen.
- Use our Parent-Teen Agreement to get the conversation started about driving behavior.
- This will help establish mutually agreed-upon rules of the road with consequences should the agreement be broken.
- Research by The Allstate Foundation indicates that parents are the No. 1 influence on their teen when it comes to learning to drive.
- Printable PDFs are available in English and Spanish for each state.
Learn to be a Driving Coach.
- Practice lessons and tips created by The Allstate Foundation will help parents guide their young driver through the licensing process.
- Instructions are divided by those for Teens with Learner’s Permits and Newly Licensed Drivers.
- Parents should consider driving with their teens as much as possible and for a minimum of 30 minutes per week, even after a driver’s license is earned.
- Brochures are available from your Allstate Agency Owner. Printable PDFs are also available in English and Spanish.
Know the Laws in Your State.
- Graduated Driver Licensing is a system required by law in all states that slowly exposes teens to the driving experience and phases them into full driving privileges.
- GDL is proven effective at reducing teen drivers' high crash rates by up to 40 percent.
- A video from the National Safety Council and sponsored by The Allstate Foundation clearly explains graduated driver licensing – in English and Spanish.
- The Foundation also offers a chart with the basics of GDL Laws by state. Printable PDFs of the chart are available in English and Spanish.
