Every day, you teach your teen way more about safe driving than you realize. As a parent, you probably hand over the car keys to your teenage son or daughter with mixed emotions: relief, because you won’t have to play chauffeur much longer; pride, because learning to drive marks a rite of passage for your child; and, perhaps most of all, anxiety and fear.
You have good reason for concern. Nationally, traffic crashes rank as the No. 1 cause of death for 16- to 19-year-olds, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. Every year, more than 3,000 teens die on the road, and 350,000 wind up in emergency rooms.
AAA Alabama research and experience have shown that it’s critical for parents to have candid discussions with their teens and to set specific boundaries about what GDL means for them.
To help parents coach their teens, AAA Alabama developed the Alabama Parent-Teen Driving Agreement, which covers important things like rules, curfews, and consequences that you and your teen should agree to before he or she ever gets behind the wheel.

Help protect your teen driver by avoiding vehicles that lead to reckless driving. To help you choose the right vehicle, the Auto Club’s Automotive Research Center (ARC) has evaluated vehicles based on a set of criteria such as crash test ratings, engine type, vehicle size, and fuel economy to develop a list of the best cars for new teen drivers.
