Driver Education

Driving a car is something that, as adults, has become second nature to us. Many parents have the responsibility of teaching their teenagers how to safely navigate the road, but more emphasis has been placed on driver education in the classroom. This collection provides many resources, both theoretical and practical, as well as all important safety advice for your teenage drivers.

    Amy Watson says:
    This website offers a huge range of resources and activities to promote safe teen driving. I love that it even includes the 'real cost of driving' and takes a very rounded approach to driving. There are three sections - parents, educators and teens - so there really is something for everyone.

    Students can access this site from home, or in a computer lab, or even with old fashioned pen and paper with the test on a screen at the front of the classroom.

    It isn't just about safety when driving, but also about being a safe passenger. It's important for teens to act as respectful passengers to ensure the safety of everyone in the vehicle. Get involved in National Teen Driver Safety Week to really promote driver safety!

    Amy Watson says:
    Ford has created an abundance of resources that can be downloaded or you can request hard copies. These resources are best used as investigative work rather than basic driver safety.
  • Amy Watson says:
    An easy to follow lesson complete with resources and assessment ideas.
  • Amy Watson says:
    An interesting article highlighting the fact that young people develop driving habits long before they actually get behind the wheel. Read for your own information or share with parents, or even offer lesson ideas to younger pupils who are merely passengers in cars with parents or older siblings.
