Parents Resources

Confused About The Whole Process?

Do you find yourself just as perplexed as other parents when it comes to the licensing process? If that’s the case, we’ve tailored a dedicated license process page exclusively for you. This page includes a step-by-step timeline detailing what your teen will experience while obtaining their license. Additionally, we highly recommend you take a look at our Parent-Teen Resources.

The majority of states enforce a graduated licensing system for teenage drivers. This system often includes limitations such as nighttime driving restrictions and restrictions on carrying teenage passengers. Interestingly, despite comprising only 7% of the overall driving population, teenage drivers are involved in 14% of fatal accidents. Shockingly, traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for individuals aged 15-19. Therefore, it is crucial to assist your teenager in developing safe driving habits.

How to Make Teen Drivers Follow Cell Phone Laws While Driving?

In this particular scenario, it is impossible to provide an excessive amount of information. Teenagers who disregard cell phone laws while driving often have the misconception that they won’t be caught or that using a handheld device while driving is not a potentially life-threatening distraction. It is essential to educate your teenager about the serious risks associated with using cell phones while driving. To achieve this, we suggest reading the following guidelines together to help them gain a comprehensive understanding of the matter.

California Teen Driving Laws

Who is in the Car with Your Teen?

It’s worth contemplating the individuals permitted to accompany your teenage driver. In terms of driving regulations in California, both who your teen drives with and how they drive hold significant importance. Within the initial 12 months of licensure, a teen driver is prohibited from transporting passengers under the age of 20 unless an adult passenger aged 25 or older is present. In California, a newly licensed teen driver with less than 12 months of driving experience is legally prohibited from transporting any passengers under the age of 20 without the presence of an adult supervisor.

What Are the Rules for a 15½ Year Old with a CA Learners Permit?

Individuals who are 15½ years old may meet the requirements to obtain a learning permit. After successfully passing the DMV Permit test required for obtaining the permit, they are legally allowed to drive on public roads. However, it is important to note that they must always be accompanied by an adult who is 25 years or older. A person holding a learner’s permit is strictly prohibited from transporting any passengers other than the supervising adult. Additionally, they are not permitted to drive between 11 PM and 5 AM.

What are the Rules governing a teenager with a provisional license in California?

Within the initial 12-month period, your minor teen is prohibited from engaging in the following activities:

– Operating a vehicle between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5 a.m., although exceptions may apply for work, school, or religious purposes. Please consult local laws that may impose additional restrictions or prohibitions on driving during specific timeframes.

– Transporting passengers under the age of 20, unless accompanied by a licensed Parent or Guardian, a California driver who is 25 years of age or older, or a certified driving instructor.

Furthermore, it is illegal for drivers under the age of 18 to utilize a cell phone or any other wireless electronic communication device while driving, including hands-free devices, except when making emergency calls or when on private property. Once an individual reaches the age of 18, they are no longer obligated to adhere to any provisional driving rules and regulations.”

Can Drivers Ed be taught effectively online?

Do you have reservations regarding the effectiveness of an online course for your child’s driver education? A study conducted by the DMV, comparing online driver education to traditional methods such as paper-based workbooks and classroom courses, revealed that computer-based instruction conducted at home may actually be more effective than classroom instruction.

Our California Permit Drivers Ed course is comprehensive, with a strong emphasis on safety, and it goes beyond just teaching the mechanics of driving by explaining the reasons behind driving practices.

Numerous behind-the-wheel driving schools highly recommend our course because they recognize that our “graduates” possess a solid foundation of knowledge when they commence their driver training.

We empathize with your situation…

Many parents often inquire, “What should I do?” in order to fulfill the California Vehicle Code requirement of 50 hours of supervised driving supervised by a parent or legal guardian. Most parents acknowledge that they may have their own driving errors and want to prevent passing these same mistakes on to their teenagers.
