Having a new driver is frightening and freeing! While I am sure you are like me, happy to stop driving your teen everywhere, it causes parents anxiety about the cost of insurance and the fear of accidents. One important thing we recommend for parent and drivers to be is to find a great driver’s education class. Often parents who are teaching our kids are a little rusty in the rules of the road and add stress to the lesson. I know my son and daughter hated being in the car with Jim and me – white knuckle the entire time!
Often parents think its too expensive to take the behind the wheel training, but I can tell it pays for itself. Most carriers offer great discounts for teen with training and if they are a good student – even more savings!
