  • What is TeenDriving?
    TeenDriving is a safe method for instilling accountability in teens regarding their driving.
    We work to educate parents and teens on the importance of safe driving. Our purpose is not to get teens in trouble, but rather to help them understand the dangers of unsafe driving and the privileges of driving in general. Our program allows for parent(s) to monitor their teens driving while giving them the freedom and independence they so desire.

  • How does TeenDriving work?
    It’s easy. Once you create an account with us, you will enter the information for the teen and vehicles which you would like to be monitored. (Note, the more information that can be provided on the vehicle and teen, the more accurate the reporting and the easier it will be for others to monitor). Upon activation, we’ll send you a package containing a uniquely identifiable bumper sticker that should be placed on the vehicle. Any reporting of incidents from there out will be monitored through our website and delivered to you via email.

  • How does someone file an incident on my teen?
    If someone has witnessed unsafe driving from a car with your teen’s bumper sticker on it, they are encouraged through the bumper sticker to visit our site and report it. Upon visiting http://www.teendriving.org, they will click on the section “File an Incident”. Through our online form, the witness is asked to enter as much information about the vehicle, it’s identifiers (unique bumper sticker number, license plate number, make and model, etc.) as well as detail out what the incident was. We also encourage witnesses to provide contact information about themselves so that if the parent wants to further discuss the incident and get more facts, they have the option. This, however, is not required. We don’t want to discourage witnesses from coming forward so we allow for anonymity. Once they complete their report and submit it, a copy gets emailed to you with all the information that they entered.

  • What happens if someone files an incident report against my teen?
    If someone files a report against your vehicle/teen, you will be notifed via email. The email will contain the full report as entered by the individual. If the person filing the report chooses to allow the parent/guardian to contact them, you will also receive the contact information for the person filing the report.

  • When will I be notifed of any incidences against my registered driver?
    Incident reports are emailed as soon as the information provided in the incident report matches your account information.

  • What happens if a report is filed against my Teen/registered driver that I believe is false?
    No one else will see the incident reports filed. It is strictly for your personal use to do with what you choose.

  • Who can participate in TeenDriving?
    Anyone that has a teenager, or young driver that they would like to monitor can participate in TeenDriving.

  • Can I sign up for more than one year now, or do I have to come back each year and re-activate my registration?
    You can purchase additional years activation with your initial registration. If you choose not to, then the account will expire one year from the date you register.

  • How can I get my teen to accept this monitoring program without feeling like I don’t trust them?
    It’s tough to teach kids that even though we trust them, we still worry and want to protect them. At TeenDriving.org we feel it’s important to establish trust by involving your teen in our program. Talk with them about it and communicate to them that this is one of the rules that must be followed if driving privileges are to be given. Establish a set of rules for driving with your teen so that if an incident is filed, it’s understood by both parties that the agreement made was broken and driving privileges may be altered or revoked temporarily. Constant communication with your teen is key. Let them know that you understand driving is a thrill, but also that they have to understand it can be a dangerous weapon.

  • Why would someone go to TeenDriving.org to log a complaint instead of calling the local police?
    Police won’t take the time to report this information to parents, let alone look into the incidents as they are reported. TeenDriving.org will report any and all incidents to parents that have registered drivers.
