Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) systems allow teen drivers to safely gain driving experience, during lower risk times and situations, before obtaining full driving privileges. Every state’s law is unique, and it is important to know the ins and outs of your law.

Adult Tips:

  • Be a good role model.

  • Do not rely on driver's education to teach your teen. Slowly introduce them to complicated driving situations.

  • Create a written agreement, like the New Driver Deal from the National Safety Council, and define expectations, milestones, and consequences.

  • Use the SADD Contract for Life and tell them how important it is that they come home safe and sound.
