Talk To Teens With Toyota TeenDrive365

ToyotaAt the NYE Automotive Group, there might not be a sight so rewarding as watching a young driver leave the lot with his or her first vehicle.

We all remember that time and the all-new sensations of being behind the steering wheel rather than in the passenger’s seat for the first time. The world is there for the taking, or at least as much of it as you can reach on a tank of gas. But even as the anticipation of the first trip alone is exciting for the kids, it is also a time of apprehension for parents — and that’s where Toyota’s TeenDrive365 comes in to help.

TeenDrive365 is an educational program for parents to give them the tools needed to talk with teens — never a small feat — and prepare them for their first year driving, in an effort to lay the groundwork for safe driving for many years to come. As the local Toyota dealer, NYE supports their TeenDrive365 program to reach out to new drivers in an effort to remind them to be as safe as possible on the roads.

It’s a harsh reality that the teen’s first year of driving will likely be one of the most dangerous years in his or her life. TeenDrive365 is Toyota’s way of making available online safe driving tools and tips that will help create a new generation of safe drivers. There’s a mutual driving agreement for both the parent and the teen, a Safety Challenge driving quiz to pit the adult’s experience vs. the teen’s youthful enthusiasm, and a collection of “Swapping Seats” videos showing just how much the kids’ driving habits will be impacted by what they’ve seen from their parents.
Just as that first year behind the wheel is a dangerous one for the teens, it’s also a trying time for the parents as they let their children have freedom they’ve never experienced before. TeenDrive365 is just as much an outreach for the adults as it is for the teens, because it will help reinforce their knowledge that their young drivers are out there prepared for whatever they will face on the roadway.
