What is Teen Driver Technology?
Since 2015, General Motors has been offering Teen Driver technology in its vehicles. Teen Driver is a free feature, a built-in system that coaches young drivers to develop safe habits when they are behind the steering wheel and produces a driving report card to parents following a teen’s use of the family car, truck, or SUV.
According to the automaker, studies have shown that teen drivers are more prone to making unwise driving decisions such as not fastening seat belts, speeding, and playing loud music, resulting in distracted driving. Teen Driver helps mitigate those risk factors and allows parents to monitor their teen’s driving behaviors to teach and reinforce safe driving skills.
