Don't bail out
Parents need to stay involved in their teen's driving throughout the Restricted licence phase to help them identify and address risks such as peer pressure, planning ahead and self-assessment for driving. The new website - www.safeteendriver.co.nz - provides some free tools to empower and support parents to manage these issues with their teens to keep them safe on the roads. The new tools have been developed by the NZTA in association with a parent/teen psychologist and a driving psychologist.
The new website is a one-stop shop for parents of teen drivers as it also covers the Learner phase and links to free resources in the existing NZTA and ACC Practice programme. If young drivers gain around 120 hours of supervised driving practice in the Learner phase they can reduce the risk of a crash when they drive alone by 40 percent.
