Here at Direct Driving School, we recommend following the 5 LEARN steps that our defensive driving course Calgary experts have put together for teen drivers:

  • Limit the number of passengers. For new young drivers, passengers can be a massive safety risk. Fatal car crashes that involve 16-year-old drivers are more likely to occur if there are other young people in the car. The risk actually increases with every teenage passenger. We would urge you to consider a “no passenger” rule for the first year of unsupervised driving for maximum safety.
  • Everyone wears a seatbelt (every time). There is no better protection in a crash than the one your seatbelt offers. The chance of injury is decreased by 50% when wearing a seatbelt yet more than half of Alberta’s teen drivers who were injured in crashes in the past five years were not wearing a seatbelt at all.
  • After dark, it’s time to park. The majority of deadly crashes involving teenagers occur between 9 PM and 6 AM. If you’re the parent of a new young driver, we would encourage you to consider restricting your child’s driving hours between those times (especially on weekends).
  • Rural roads mean more risk. More than 75% of crashes that resulted in serious injuries in Alberta happened on rural roads. There were many reasons for this including too many passengers, the influence of alcohol and not wearing seatbelts. As the parent of a young driver, we would recommend setting some tough rules when it comes to driving on rural roads.
  • No alcohol or drugs (ever). Alcohol has an almost immediate effect on driving performance even in very small quantities.
