Did you know that this is the 11th year that Toyota has offered a free driving skills program? And this isn’t just any program. It is design specifically to help parents steer their teens towards safety. The TeenDrive365 platform gives families tips and resources for the critical first year of teen driving. This comprehensive program teaches defensive driving skills, crash avoidance techniques and the dangers of distracted driving. And your dealer of Toyota Cars near West County has all the details.
The leading cause of death among teens continues to be motor vehicle crashes. Something that Toyota recognizes is that the parents play a critical role when teens are developing their behind-the-wheel habits. That’s why this program from Toyota is designed to require the parent of guardian to actively participate in the event with the teen. This driving experience is available to pre-drivers and new driver as long as they have a permit of license.
This year’s event calendar look like this:
Pearl, Mississippi on Sept. 27 and 28 at Bass Pro Shops
Ann Arbor, Michigan on Oct. 4 and 5 at Washtenaw Community College
Honolulu, Hawaii on Nov. 8 and 9 at Aloha Stadium
You must register for this event. This can be done at events.teendrive365.com.
Michael Rouse, Toyota’s vice president of diversity, philanthropy and community affairs recently said, “Toyota is committed to bringing parents and teens together to better navigate the important first years on the road. Through this year’s three hands-on safe driving programs around the country, coupled with our online TeenDrive365 resources, we hope to make the roads a little safer for everyone.”
The TeenDrive365 goes beyond what is taught in driver ed. We believe that parents and teen will make mutual driving agreements and learn to communicate with more tips even at home.
