Parent's Supervised Driving Guide
The Parent's Supervised Driving Guide provides a practical and detailed instruction plan to help parents and their teen drivers get the most out of the supervised driving requirement under Michigan's Graduated Driving Licensing law. The material is designed for behind-the-wheel supervision so it is clear, concise and easily put into practice.
The guide begins with basic skills such as moving, stopping and steering and progresses to more advanced skills such as anticipating the actions of other drivers and avoiding crashes. It provides parents with the tools and information they need to effectively coach their teen driver through the complex task of learning to drive safely.
This guide was created to address a need to improve roadway safety and teen driving behaviors nationwide. In Michigan, this free guide is available to parents and teens as a resource to enhance the required supervised driving process. The underwriting by State Farm ® covers 100 percent of the program's cost and allows them to share in the mission to improve teen drivers' safety.
A copy of the guide is being provided to parents through Secretary of State offices when they bring their teen in for a Graduated Level 1 Learner's License. The guide is also available in PDF format for anyone, including parents that would like an additional copy or whose teen is already licensed.
