Let's talk parent to parent. Three out of four teens say their parents are the biggest influence in their driving habits; what you say is important, but how you drive is more important! From the moment you get in the car, start teaching them the importance of driving safely--buckle your seatbelt, put your phone away and limit distractions. Watch your speed—your teen is! Pay attention to the road rules, drive safely, courteously, and defensively. Explain the consequences of poor, unsafe driving—more than 5,000 teens are killed in car crashes each year.

Driving with our instructors is great, but it's not enough. If you want your student to be a good driver, practice, practice, practice at home. Let them drive you to and from school, after school activities, and running errands. Put them in situations they will eventually be driving in alone—night driving, poor weather conditions, city and highway driving.

When it comes to scheduling your teen's behind the wheel drive times with us, we know your teen's life is busy! Although we drive all day, every day, seven days a week, you may not be able to find the "perfect" behind the wheel drive time with us—available after school and weekend drive times are always fill first. You might have to prioritize their behind the wheel drive time over something else in this short season of their Drivers Education.

Once your teen gets their drivers license, know and follow the Oklahoma Graduated Driver's License Law:

  • Your teen will have a restricted drivers license for six months after they pass their test.
  • The law allows only 1 passenger who does not live in the residence, under 21 years of age in the car with your teen.
  • A newly licensed driver can only drive between the hours of 5am-10pm unless driving to and from school, work or church related activities.
  • Cell phone use is illegal for students with a permit or intermediate license; so is any electronic, hand-held device: MP3 players, GPS, and IPADS.
