Safe Driver Checklist

Drivers Icon Teaching Your Teen to Drive

Use this checklist when your teen has finished practicing all the driving skills discussed in this guide.

  • Take your teen on a long “test” ride. As you ride, check your teen’s driving against the checklist.
  • Be sure that your teen is following the safe driving habits listed.
  • Check (✓) each item you see your teen doing correctly. This list should tell you where your teen still needs practice or help. Your teen should, as a habit, do all the things listed before taking the driving test at DMV PDF.
