Commissioner’s Message

Brought to you by:


Dear Parents and Teens:

The Department of Driver Services (DDS) is proud to provide the 40-Hour Parent/Teen Driving Guide to prepare new drivers for their first license. For parents and guardians, we encourage you to take an active role in educating your teen drivers and their peers: please be familiar with and enforce the teen driving rules, and always let your good driving habits be the example.

As you study this guide, parents and guardians should remember to focus on critical driving skills. A recent study by the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute found that nearly 50 percent of serious teen crashes resulted from three common mistakes. First, driving too fast which includes not only speeding, but also driving too fast for certain conditions such as construction zones or neighborhood streets. Second is driving while distracted, perhaps by other passengers or a cellphone or something outside of the vehicle. Third is failing to recognize a hazard, which means we should be observing our surroundings far ahead of the vehicle being driven.

I also want to remind all of our customers that, by creating your own personal account using DDS Online Services, you may conduct transactions with DDS at your convenience and often at a discount. For instance, you may go online to change an address or check for any points associated with your license. Young drivers who are in good standing are reminded that they can upgrade from Class D to Class C online as soon as they turn 18 years old, avoiding another trip to the nearest DDS office.

Please visit if you have a licensing question or need a service and don’t forget to “Like” us on Facebook!
