Professional Advice for Training Teens to Drive
With a team of highly experienced driving instructors, award-winning Prestige Driving School was featured in an article by NSW Compensation Lawyers as experts on teaching safe driving techniques to your new teen driver.
Based in Sydney, we service a range of suburbs in the Parramatta, Ryde, The Hills Shire, Hornsby Shire, Bankstown, Canterbury, Botany, Randwick, Rockdale, Kogarah, Hurstville and Sutherland Shire areas. We ensure focus is placed not only on the goal of passing a driving test but on helping learners to drive safely for life.
With over 18 years of experience, our instructors work with learner drivers at any stage, from those just getting behind the wheel for the first time to teens almost ready for their test. Instructors continuously assess students, reminding them of any mistakes to help correct them and turn safe driving behaviour into habits.
In the article, ‘Driving Lessons and Road Safety Tips for Teen Driving
’, we suggest that proper driver training is the key to success when your teen is learning how to drive. As a parent teaching your child how to drive, it’s possible you may have forgotten certain road rules, safety techniques and applications over the years. It’s important that teens receive training that’s up to date, so this way, they form excellent habits right from the beginning of their driving career.
Professionally trained instructors know how to deliver information to learner drivers in a way that makes it easier for them to learn. They’re adept at teaching, rather than telling, with superior techniques to ensure your child progresses in skill while learning how to do so safely.
It’s also important that teens are taught to drive in newer cars that include safety features to help save lives. Though it’s common practice to buy teens old bombs as first cars, the risk of injury is significantly increased in the case of an incident.
In terms of specific driving tips for teens, Prestige recommends they always look far ahead to ensure there’s plenty of time to analyse situations and make appropriate decisions. Teens need to understand the importance of always being one step ahead. For example, planning the next move, while waiting at lights or in traffic, means more time for making good decisions that ensure safe driving practices while learning and for life.
