Behind The Wheel
When a teen gets a driver's license, he/she may feel she can use her new freedom however he/she wants. But beginning drivers are much more likely to get into accidents than experienced drivers.
Consider setting safety restrictions like these for your new driver:
No driving with friends
Friends can be a dangerous distraction for inexperienced drivers. Don't let your teenager drive with other teens until he has at least one year of driving experience. Note: Some states have laws that limit the number of non-family passengers allowed in a vehicle with young drivers.
Teens are more likely to have accidents at night. Consider setting a "no driving after sundown" rule - unless a responsible adult is in the car, too. Note: States and communities often have new-driver curfews for morning and evening hours.
Drive with an adult
Beginners need experience behind the wheel. So, let your child drive as much as possible - but only when a trusted adult is in the car.

No music in the vehicle for 60 days
People are influenced by the tempo of the music they listen to.
The faster the music the faster people tend to drive. Beginning drivers need to become familiar with sound of traffic, horns, sirens, train whistles, etc.
