makes teenSMART successful?

Unlike driver's education programs that focus on passing a driving test, teenSMART uses behavioral intervention methodology and scientifically based instructional technology to identify and address the six factors that cause more than 90% of all teen collisions.


  • 1

    Visual Search
  • 2

    Hazard Detection
  • 3

    Speed Adjustment
  • 4

    Space Management
  • 5

    Risk Perception
  • 6

    Lifestyle Issues

Teens learn about each of these factors through self-paced, interactive exercises that keep them engaged and interested.

Computer-based driving tutorials done on the home computer provide hands-on, in-depth practice. Teens are asked to demonstrate specific driving skills and are given immediate feedback. The computer software also provides a step-by-step roadmap to guide the teen through the program.

Parent-Teen Activities include lively and informative videos and in-car driving sessions conducted under parental supervision. During the driving sessions, teens apply what they have learned during the training to real-world driving situations.

A Certification Test completes the program. Teens receive a certificate of completion once they pass the test and upload test results to ADEPT Driver.


  • Program Software (via download or DVD)
  • A teenSMART Certification License (must be purchased for each teen going through the program.)
