This interactive site helps parents and teens manage the complex and critical coming-of-age driving process by providing them with specific information based on where they live and where they are in the learning process—from preparing teens to drive (pre-permit) through the learner’s permit and solo driving.
AAA research and experience have shown that it’s critical for parents to have candid discussions with their teens and to set specific boundaries about what GDL means for them.
To help parents coach their teens, AAA developed the Parent-Teen Driving Agreement, which covers important things like rules, curfews, and consequences that you and your teen should agree to before he or she ever gets behind the wheel.
Help protect your teen driver by avoiding vehicles that lead to reckless driving. To help you choose the right vehicle, the AAA Automotive Research Center (ARC) has evaluated vehicles based on a set of criteria such as crash test ratings, engine type, vehicle size, and fuel economy to develop a list of the best cars for new teen drivers.
If your teenager has just received a driver's license, it may be hard to imagine handing over the keys to your brand new car. But, that may be the smartest vehicle to choose.
Involved in teen driver safety for 75 years, AAA has a full range of tools to help parents and teens throughout the whole learning-to-drive process.

Car crashes are the leading cause of death among 16 to 19-year-olds. In fact, one of five teen drivers will be in a crash during the first year of driving. AAA is working to improve teen driver safety by raising awareness of the problem.
AAA urges parents of teens to help improve their safety by following AAA’s list of nine things parents can do to keep their teen driver safe.
Manager. Leader. Coach. Partner. You’ll assume all these roles as your teen works through steps to become a safe and responsible adult driver from helping your teen get an instruction permit and finding a quality driver education school, to supervising driving practice and strengthening your young driver’s confidence.
