The Minnesota Department of Public Safety recommends that both parents and teens sign a contract in which the teen driver agrees to follow specific rules. Some of these may include the following:
• I will wear a seat belt at all times
• I will never drive after consuming drugs or alcohol
• I will drive at a safe speed for the specific road conditions
• I will never use a cell phone while driving
The parents can also promise to be available for driving practice on a regular basis.
