5 Problem Areas for Teen Drivers

Last updated 7 years ago

Learning to drive can be exciting for both teenagers and their parents. Many parents choose to enroll their teens in driving school to help them prepare for their driver test. These courses benefit teens in a number of ways—from learning the basics to focusing on certain topics that are important for teens. Driving school can also help teen drivers tackle these 5 common problem areas:

1.      Changing lanes.

A lot of teens find it challenging to successfully change lanes. Learning how and when to check your blind spot is an important part of changing lanes. It’s also helpful to practice changing lanes without slowing down. Teens must also be able to stay in their current lane when checking their blind spot.

 2.      Maintaining speed.

It’s very important for drivers to be able to maintain their speed on the road. Constantly slowing down and speeding up can cause a distraction for other drivers. Learning to reach a speed and maintain it can help you become a better driver.

 3.      Scanning.

As a driver, it’s essential that you keep your eyes on the road. Your eyes should constantly be “scanning” the road—checking for what’s ahead while keeping an eye on other drivers and possible hazards. Scanning also helps drivers look for signs and light changes.

 4.      Backing up.

Backing up seems easy, but if you have a poor spatial awareness of your car or fail to properly check your blind spot, the consequences can be disastrous.

 5.      Stopping.

Stop signs should never be ignored. Even if there are no other cars around, drivers must still make a complete stop at every stop sign and red light. This ensures safety for all drivers.
