Done. Finished. Complete. Well, not quite.
Teen drivers still need their parents’ advice and support—even after they have started driving by themselves. Their crash risk is highest now that they are driving on their own, so parents should still be coaching them behind the wheel, guiding their learning and monitoring where, when and with whom they drive. Palermo Driving School can help
BE A SAFE PASSENGER
- Don’t ride with a teen driver without your advance permission.
- Ride without distracting the driver.
- Contact you for a ride home if a teen driver is unsafe.
- Always properly wear a safety belt
Excited. Nervous. Excited again. You’re about to become a driver, which will bring new freedoms and responsibilities. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? That’s normal. A lot is involved in learning to drive, but don’t worry. Palermo Driving School can help you in every step of the way.
At age 15, teens can apply for a learner’s license in the state of Florida. The teen must
have completed a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Course; pass the written, vision and
hearing tests; and have a signed parent consent form.
With a learner’s license, teens may only drive with a licensed driver age 21 or older
supervising and sitting in the front seat. For the first three months, teens may only practice during daylight hours; then, teens may practice no later than 10 p.m. Teens are required to practice driving for at least 50 hours, including 10 hours at night, with a parent or a legal guardian, before they’re allowed an intermediate permit.
AVOIDING REAR END COLLISIONS
Many crashes happened because one vehicle runs into the back of another one. Here are some things you can do to lower the risk of someone running onto the rear of your vehicle.
- Check your brake lights often to make sure they are clean and working properly.
- Know what is going on around you. Use your rearview mirrors.
- Signal well in advance for turns, stop and lane changes.
- Slow gradually avoid any sudden actions.
- Drive with the flow of traffic (within the speed limit). Driving too slowly can be as dangerous as driving too fast.
- To avoid striking the vehicle in the front of you, keep at least two seconds following distance.
SAFETY BELTS SAVE LIVES!
Wear lap belts around your hips, not your stomach. Fasten them snugly. Wear a shoulder belt only with a lap belt. Do not just use your safety belt for long trips or high-speed highways.
More than half of the crashes that cause injury or death happen: at speeds less than 40 mph, and within 25 miles of home.
