Remind them that when they have their learners permit for the allotted timeframe and are ready to go for their license they will have to take a driving test.
Some young drivers take driver's education at school and another may take private driving lessons to get some road time under their belt before they take their test.
They also do it so they may be able to get a discount on the auto insurance policy.
If you have a chance to work with them while they have their learner's permit then try to have them do some driving at night.
Young drivers are apprehensive about driving at night in the beginning and are not really trained or skilled to drive at night and will probably have their first accident at night.
Take them to a parking lot and let them practice parking, starting and stopping and doing a figure eight with imaginary plastic cones.
Do it during the day and then do it at night when they get comfortable driving during the daytime.
It may help prevent an accident which may in turn prevent your auto insurance premiums from increasing.
If I had my way, I would have scheduled my driving test at night.
Why does it have to be done during the day? Is it because the Department of Motor Vehicles is only open during the day? It would be nice to have the option of night-time driving tests.
This would help the young drivers that are working or the parents that have to take the time off from work so they can get the young driver to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
In today's economy, not everyone is able to take the time off or can afford to take the time off without pay.
Auto insurance rates are not based on night or day time driving.
In fact, there is no guarantee a discount is provided if you take the private driving lessons.
This is something you have to research when you go online and price compare auto insurance quotes to see who will give you the best auto insurance policy with a young driver.
