5 Rules For Teenage Driving

It's funny how you can turn a simple act of driving into a terrifying ordeal. I was 16 when I got my driver's license, and I remember being so excited to get behind the wheel of my first car. It didn't take long before I realized some rules had to be followed if the experience was safe for 

everyone involved. 



With our son now at age 16, we decided it was time to start enforcing some rules around driving so that he could get some experience under his belt before he took off for college in 2021—and hopefully make it through high school alive!

No texting while operating a motor vehicle.

Teaching teens the basics of safe driving is important, including ensuring they don’t text while behind the wheel. Using your cell phone while driving can be tempting, but doing so puts you at risk for distractions that can lead to an accident. Don’t let your teenager get fooled into thinking it's okay to text while driving because they have their hands on the wheel:

  • No texting while operating a motor vehicle
  • No eating or drinking while operating a motor vehicle
  • No applying makeup while operating a motor vehicle
  • No reading a book during school hours when you could be listening in class
  • Hire an hourly driver for more assistance and training.
  • No using a cell phone during school hours when you could be paying attention in class.

More practice driving.

You must practice driving in the real world, not just with your parents. You can't expect to be able to drive on the highway or in inclement weather until you've gained experience driving in situations like these.

Practice driving in different locations, too. Suppose all of your practicings has been done on back roads and residential streets. In that case, it'll be much more difficult to adapt when something goes wrong while on a four-lane highway or during rush hour traffic on I-95.

Slow down.

This is the most important rule of all. The faster you drive, the more dangerous it is. Period. We have speed limits, and police officers who enforce them should tell you everything right there. Why do we need to explain this? Because teenagers are conditioned to think that "I can go fast" or "I don't have a license yet, so I can do whatever I want." Those beliefs are false—and they're dangerous!

Speed kills. Speed is a factor in most accidents and fatalities (and serious injuries) on America's roads today. 

No passengers unless they're over 21, and no passengers more than two at a time.

Remember: you are the safe driver, and this is your responsibility. You need to be able to act without distraction, so no passengers unless they are over 21 years old. In addition, there can only be two people in the car at a time—no exceptions.

Here's why these rules are important:

  • Having a passenger in your car takes away from your concentration and makes driving more challenging. For example, if you're talking with them or listening to music, you won't hear the honking horns or see the lights change color as quickly as they should. This can lead to accidents that could've been avoided if no passengers were present in the first place!
  • You'll also have less control of your vehicle when others are around because everyone may want something different from how things go down on their end (and vice versa). As an might be trying oh so hard not to hit anyone, but then someone decides, "Hey, let's stand up here instead!" which means now everyone else has shifted positions too much for comfort due to their chair being moved outwards by about 10 feet radius (which was roughly where my mom sat).

Drive between 7 am and 5 pm only.

You should drive only between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m while training. This is safer because it's when most people are driving, and there are more drivers on the road, which means you're less likely to be in an accident.

In addition, night driving can be dangerous because you may have trouble seeing other cars' headlights or brake lights in time to avoid an accident if one were to occur. Nighttime driving also increases your risk of falling asleep at the wheel because it's harder for your body to stay awake after dark than during daylight hours (when there is more light).



These are the rules we will enforce to help keep our teenage son alive while he learns to drive.

  • No texting while driving.
  • Practice driving as much as possible, and don't get in the car with someone who has been drinking alcohol or taking drugs.
  • Speed in moderation, and never speed around bends or corners—even if you feel sure of yourself behind the wheel, there's always the potential for danger to come out of nowhere!
  • Never have passengers in your car unless they sit properly and wear seat belts—it's safer for everyone involved! Also, buckle up yourself because we want both sons alive when this is all over!


We are a very proud family of safe dryver, and we know that our son will be just fine. It's not easy being a parent these days, but I think this will help us ensure he has the best possible chance at living a long life.
