National Teen Driver Safety Week


October 18th - 24th, 2020 is National Teen Driver Safety Week!

Teen Driving Safety Week: This is National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW). GHSA partnered with Michelin to survey parents across the country about the impact of COVID-19 on their teens’ driver education/licensing. A key finding was that 62% of parents said their teen has experienced a COVID-19 related disruption in driver education/licensing and one-third (35%) don’t have a backup plan for replacing that lost learning. See this press release from GHSA and infographic for additional resources. Parents and teens are invited to visit the Ford Driving Skills for Life (Ford DSFL) online Academy for free resources.


During NTDSW, Ford DSFL also launched the I PLEDGE campaign to encourage safe teen driving. Approximately 12,000 teens and parents have taken the pledge since Sunday. GHSA is promoting the program via its social media channels. Click here to access the campaign website and materials.
