Engaging Parents & New Drivers
The Danger Zones
The Parent Care Program is a supplemental driver training program which targets the top causes of novice driver collisions as determined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We call these Danger Zones and our program is designed to give parents and new drivers tools to help avoid being involved in a collision in the critical first years of solo driving due to one of these Danger Zones.
The Centers for Disease Control list the following 8 Danger Zones as the top causes of novice driving collisions.

Coaching from the Passenger Seat
A Pre-License Course for Parents
Coaching from the Passenger Seat is a pre-license course for parents or guardians who are supervising their new drivers during the learner’s permit phase. This online course includes 12 essential lessons to guide you as the parent of a new driver from the first discussion to lay the ground rules all the way to the day they go for their license. This is a self-guided course and you can go through the course at your own pace to match your teen’s progress based on how many hours you can commit or how quickly your teen moves through the stages of driving development.
Danger Zone Training
A Post-License Course for New Drivers
Danger Zone Training is the first post-license online course to use revolutionary drip-learning techniques to help new drivers retain important defensive driving messages. Traditionally, once a teen receives their license there is no more formal training or instruction, only real-life on the road experience which as statistics show is one of the most dangerous times in a drivers career. Mike uses video, stories and dash cam footage to create short, engaging lessons that are sent to your new driver every two weeks.
Comprehensive Roadside Protection
You can prepare your new driver for almost any situation with enough training and practice. The one thing you may not be able to control is a vehicle breakdown. The Parent Care team has partnered with one of the leading providers of roadside assistance to offer parents piece of mind should your new driver require help. Along with your membership comes a number of valuable discounts from provider partners that will more than pay for the annual membership fees regardless if they need a tow or a tire change!
