Learning how to drive is an exciting rite of passage for most teens; however, it might not be as exciting for you as a parent.

The thought of your teen getting behind the wheel of your new Toyota near Orlando can be scary. Don’t worry – it’s not as hard as it may seem to teach your teen to drive. Our Toyota dealership near Orlando is sharing some safe driving tips to make it even easier!

Your new Toyota near Orlando is precious to you, which is why it’s probably hard to imagine your teen behind the wheel. However, our new Toyota near Orlando are actually perfect for first-time drivers with all of the safety features they have to offer. We want to help you have an easy experience when teaching your teen to drive. This is why Toyota of Clermont is sharing some advice when your teen hits the road for the first time.
Plan ahead of time
You have to remember that your teen probably have no idea what they’re doing or where they’re going when getting behind the wheel of your new Toyota near Orlando for the first time. This is you why you should plan the route you want them to drive ahead of time, so there’s no confusion.
You don’t typically want to let your teen take on streets the first time they’re ever behind the wheel. This is why you should start slow. You may want to first let them drive in a parking lot. This is where you also want to teach your teen to park and maneuver. After your teen gets comfortable driving in a parking lot, they can start to drive on some side streets, until they feel comfortable enough to take on busier streets and the highways.
Coach your teen
Just like you probably don’t like back seat drivers, your teen doesn’t either! This is why you want to coach them through situations instead of being too demanding. It’s important to stay calm and trust your teen to make the right decisions without yelling. You want this to be a positive experience for everyone involved.
Set a good example
Children look to you for everything they do whether you notice it or not. This is why you should set a good example when driving your new Toyota near Orlando at all times. This means going the speed limit, following all of the traffic signs and wearing your seatbelt. If you do this, your teen is more inclined to follow suit.
