Have a teen who is ready to get behind the wheel? We have some apps that will make this time in their life exciting and easier for you and them.
One of the most exciting times for children is when they turn 16. This is when they usually will seriously think about learning how to drive and get their driver's license. The age limit for new drivers will vary, but in many, if not all states, the age is 16 to get a learner's permit. When they study hard and pass the test, they achieve one of the great goals in life.
One of the most helpful apps for a new teen driver, or any driver, is a GPS app. It used to be that you would need an actual GPS device. But now, with a phone, that's no longer the case. A favorite app is Waze.
Along with having a GPS, it's never too early to help your child remember to keep track of their car needs, such as gas, oil, and when it's due for a tuneup. This is the case even if it's not technically their car. One app that is good for keeping track of maintenance and such is Simply Auto. This is an app that they can enjoy using for years into their adulthood. It lets you set reminders for service, track miles, track fill-ups, and more. It's a very handy tool for any driver, new or experienced. You don't have to worry about forgetting an oil change again.
Finally, you want to know that you can trust your teen. But you also want to know that that they are safe. That's why it's a good idea to put a tracker app on their phone. This will help you have peace of mind and know where your child is while driving. A favorite app of many parents is the Life360 app.
Having a new teen driver can be worrisome, but it can make this exciting time a lot more easy on everyone with the right apps on their phone.
