Basic Training for New Drivers

Basic Training - In addition to driver's education, teach them how things work and what to expect:

  • Check tire pressure
  • Check the gas gauge
  • Under hood checks
  • Oil level
  • Washer fluid
  • Coolant bottle level
  • Change a flat tire

You should also get a complete safety inspection on your new driver's car and go over it with them. They will gain more:

  • Respect
  • Appreciation
  • Responsibility for taking care of the car

Finally, talk about the What if's...what to do when the car stops running, when they become stranded on the side of the road:

  • Jumper cables
  • Flashlight
  • Cell phone with all of the emergency and contact numbers
