Keep Your Teen Driver Safe on the Road

Keep Your Teen Driver Safe on the Road

Did you know that car crashes are a leading cause of death for teenagers from 15-18 in the United States? Make sure your teen knows the rules of the road so they are as prepared as possible for their new adventure into driving on their own.

Texas has a Graduated License Program

The driver’s license program in Texas consists of two phases before getting a full driver license. In phase one, a driver who is between 15-17 is given a learner license for at least six months. With this license, a young driver can practice driving with a licensed adult over the age of 21 before moving up to the next phase.

To move up to phase two, you must complete a set amount of hours in driver’s education, as well as prove you are enrolled in high school or have graduated.

In phase two, teen drivers have a provisional license, which allows them to drive without a licensed adult in the car, but there are some restrictions. You are not allowed to drive with more than one passenger under the age of 21 who isn’t family, no driving between midnight and 5am, unless it’s for work or school, and no cell phone use unless there is an emergency. Your provisional license expires when you turn 18, and you can apply for a full driver’s license.

Wearing a seatbelt is such an easy thing to do, and it can save your life. According to the NHTSA, 51% of all teen drivers who were killed in a car accident were unbuckled. In Texas, you could be fined up to $200 for not wearing your seatbelt. Buckle up to save your life!

Wonderful experience from the moment of walking in, they make you feel so welcomed. The little details of even putting your name on the whiteboard welcoming you. All along the way they keep you informed on the progress, asking detailed questions to get the full picture of your individual needs. The team you're assigned, all work together to make a stressful and scary situation easy to deal with. Kelsey, Aaron and Abraham ate the best!! Thank you again 💓.

No one wants to deal with the aftermath of an accident, but if you do find yourself in that situation, these folks make the experience so much easier. I felt comfortable with them from my very first meeting. They even had a welcome message for me in their lobby. They are great people to work with and I am happy with the outcome.

A law firm like such is hard to find, one that cares for their clients with such passion. I worked with them for almost 2 years. He has always been friendly, professional, helpful, and over all amazing. He was patient with my silly questions. He is beyond paralegal. I will certainly recommend this firm to others,
