One of the most terrifying things in the world for parents to hand a teenager is a set of car keys. While it will never be easy to hand over the keys to your teen, the below tools for parents can help you teach your teen to be a better driver. That will give you a little more peace of mind when your newly-minted teen driver is on the road. Take a look!


Created by AAA, Keys2Drive is a guide to teen driver safety for you and your teen.  It offers you facts and information about teen driver safety and helps your show your teen what it takes to be a safer driver under your supervision. This means you’ll have greater confidence when your teen makes the transition to driving solo.

AAA StartSmart Online Session

This two-hour AAA StartSmart Online webinar is presented to parents in association with the AAA Keys2Drive program and discusses a wide range of useful information for nervous parents of new teen drivers or teens who are about to become drivers. The current rate for the webinar is $24.95 but the peace of mind it provides is priceless.

Driver ZED 3.0

Give your teen the experience of driving and dealing with a myriad of distractions without the risks of doing it on the road with the Driver ZED 3.0 virtual driving experience. This experience tests your teen’s ability to track what’s going on around him or her. The program comes equipped with more than 100 scenarios and allows teens to progress at their own paces.

Parent-Teen Driver Agreement

Driving is often your teen’s first venture into adulthood and making autonomous decisions. Prepare them for the other challenges of adulthood by creating a parent-teen driver agreement you both fill out together to promote safe and responsible driving by your teen and to reward your teen accordingly.

AAA provides you with a handy parent-teen driver agreement template to help you to create your this “contract”.

GPS Tracking

Ultimately, the next best thing to being in the car with your teen is having the ability to track your teen’s driving remotely. GPS teen tracking allows you to monitor your teen’s driving remotely and in real time. You can even receive text message alerts for certain driving behaviors, such as speeding, aggressive driving, or harsh braking, or driving beyond certain geographic boundaries.  Some systems even allow you to disable the car completely if your teen is displaying dangerous behavior behind the wheel.

While you can’t always go with your teen as they spread their wings and start to drive, these tools help you give them the knowledge they need to drive safely.

Fleet vehicles go through many extremes over the course of a year. Depending on your location and the routes your drivers take, you could be experiencing opposite ends of temperature extremes in the course of a few days. While cold weather certainly takes a toll on vehicle batteries, so does extreme heat.

You’ve probably heard by now, more than once, that cold weather can slow down your batteries making fleet vehicles slow to start during winter weather. What isn’t quite so common knowledge among the general public is how heat affects vehicle batteries and what you can do to prevent some of the worst damage.
