What is StartSmart? The StartSmart program helps families get through the crucial period when teens are learning to drive. A series of newsletters helps you identify the challenges you and your teen will face and how to work as a team to reduce risk.

How does it work? Once you sign up, you will receive a series of e-newsletters focused on topics related to teen driver safety and parent involvement. StartSmart consists of 18 newsletters addressing topics such as:

  • Driving at Night
  • Conducting supervised driving
  • Distractions
  • Using a Parent-Teen Driving Agreement

Who should sign up? You should sign up if your teen (A) already has his/her Learner’s Permit, or (B) is within 2 months of receiving his/her Learner’s Permit.

Is your teen between 2-6 months away from receiving his/her Learner’s Permit? Register to have an email reminder sent to you when it is time to enroll in StartSmart.
