Teens need more experience than just driving to and from school and church which becomes benign and repetitive. By doing this, when the teen is out driving on their own, they will have experience in "real world" driving conditions. Forty seven percent of the parents that participated in the study said there were certain conditions in which they still did not feel comfortable driving with their teens, even after a year long learners permit stage. Thirty seven percent of those families still allowed their teen to get their license one month after becoming eligible. The AAA foundation gives recommendations for parents when teaching their children how to drive like paying attention to how they drive, give them strategies for driving intelligently, teach them defensive driving, and most importantly that you spend enough time with them driving to ensure safety before they drive independently.
We at Pumpkin Cars, and especially Franck Freon know the importance of safe driving and stress it to every Pumpkin customer whether they are 18 or 80. Franck knows from his extensive career as a professional driver that the smallest safety feature of the car cannot be overlooked because somebody's mother, father, sister or brother's life could depend on it. That is why every Pumpkin Car goes through a strict safety check during our Pumpkin Certification Program. As most parents with young or teenage drivers know most times they are not worried about their own drivers safety and ability, but they are worried about other drivers on the road. Learning to drive defensively will help your teen better react to situations where other drivers are not safe.
