Lane Control Backing Up the Car Right Turns
Your teen should practice controlling the car during the first lessons. No time plan is given here. Your teen must complete 50 hours of supervised
practice (10 hours at night). You will be asked to certify to this training before your teen is licensed. These driving sessions should give your
teen practice in the basic skills listed below.
Only after your teen can shift gears (if necessary, in your car), backup, and turn easily and safely should you begin
practicing the skills listed below:
Keeping Space Around the Car
Practicing in Traffic
After the Level I and Level II skills are mastered, the skills listed below can be practiced:
Parking on Hills
Only after your teen has mastered control of the car and the skills in Levels I, II, and III,
should he or she practice night driving and freeway driving.
Special Problems and Emergencies
Take a Check Ride
When your teen has finished practicing the skills in Level IV, look at the Safe Driver Checklist.
This test ride should show you if your new driver needs more practice.
