Parental involvement is one key way you can help protect your teen drivers. Consider setting rules, signing a parent teen driving contract, and being a good example. If you drive distracted (texting, eating, grooming), you can expect your teens to do the same.
Another way to help protect them is to enroll them in Road America’s Teen Driving School sponsored by West Bend. The driving school teaches advanced skills not taught in driver’s education. These skills include:
1. Skid prevention and control;
2. ABS vs. threshold braking;
3. Collision avoidance maneuvers;
4. Car control fundamentals; and
5. Proper vision skills.
This program is conducted by professional driving instructors in a very safe environment.
This program is offered several times during the year at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI. It runs from 9:00am to 4:00pm CST. To register your teen driver, click here.
The program’s retail price is $250; however, because of West Bend’s sponsorship, the price is $80 for the general public and $50 for West Bend policyholders. If you’re a West Bend policyholder, you’ll need a promo code to receive the discounted price. Please select “Contact Us” at the top of this page and complete the form.
