By using advanced behavioral science, research, and testing, teenSMART focuses on altering driver behavior and reducing a teen's risk of collisions.

teenSMART includes:

Interactive computer-based lessons and practice: Realistic and challenging driving simulations address the six leading causes of teen driver crashes and develop neurocognitive pathways associated with crash avoidance skills.

Parent-Teen Activities: Safe driving discussions, videos, and in-car driving exercises reinforce the computer-based lessons.

Certification: Complete tests on your home computer, at your own pace. See test results and receive proof of completion in minutes.

To begin, you need:

  • A driver license or permit for the teen driver
  • A parent (or licensed driver 25 or older) to help complete the Parent-Teen Activities
  • A PC or Mac that meets minimum specifications
  • An Internet connection
  • Approximately 8 hours to complete. Training is divided into short 30-minute chapters so teens can complete the program at their own pace.
