Parent Care Program by Top Driver
The Parent Care Program by Top Driver has been designed to help you and your new driver combat the top causes of novice driver collisions as reported by the Centers for Disease Control (cdc.gov). Studies show that up to 50% of new drivers will be involved in a collision in their first year due primarily to the following “Danger Zones”:
Driving with Teen Passengers
Driving at Night
Improper Use of Seat Belts
The two courses making up the Parent Care Program have been developed in association with Mike Pehl, a 30 year veteran crash investigator and driving educator to directly address these Danger Zones. His passion for teaching parents and new drivers how to keep them safe through strategies to last a lifetime and Top Drivers commitment to Driver Intelligence have inspired this one-of-kind driver education initiative. Together as a team, we can all reduce the risk of your teen driver becoming another statistic through excellent training, lots of supervised driving and maintaining awareness.
The first course, Coaching from the Passenger Seat is a pre-license tool which will help parents to overcome the number one danger zone…Driver Inexperience. The only way to decrease the chances of a collision due to this Danger Zone is to give your new driver as much practice as possible in the learner’s stage so they are prepared for any situation, road condition or challenge they encounter when they start driving on their own. This course is a step-by-step guide of how to safely and effectively supervise your teen’s “practice sessions”. Narrated by veteran crash investigator and driving educator, Mike Pehl, this video series is engaging and informative and can be taken at your own pace based on progress and time put into supervised driving.
Pre-License Course - Coaching from the Passenger Seat
The post-license course, Danger Zone Training, is the first of its kind and combines a revolutionary spaced-learning technique with great tips and tricks, real life videos and stories. Your teen will be sent a new online lesson (2-12 minutes long) every two weeks, the first dealing directly with one or more of the danger zones and the next a short dash cam video and accompanying lesson on how to avoid the situation shown in the scene. The learning technique of watching short “bite-sized” lessons at regular intervals has proven very effective for the retention of information over time. In extensive studies with professional drivers, this training has shown average collision reductions of 35% in high-risk organizations!
