This video is an excellent resource for parents and first time drivers. It was produced by Progressive and features an excellent explanation of the risks of teenage drivers. The video includes the stories from several parents of children who were killed in accidents shortly after receiving their drivers license.
It provides pointers and advice while providing touching stories from the perspective of the parents who want to help others who might be influenced by their experience. I have the DVD available in my office for you to pick up and view - free of charge. Or a lower quality version can be Viewed here.
I also have an article for tips and ideas on how to manage the cost of insuring youthful operators.
