New Program in Michigan
Michigan announces the rollout of a new driving program to help parents and guardians of teen drivers.
The program includes a new parent’s driving guide sponsored by Ford that is being distributed to parents of teen drivers at Secretary of State Offices. You can also download the guide at: michigan.gov
This guide was created to address a need to improve roadway safety and teen driving behaviors nationwide.
In addition, there is an app that can be used to log and track driving practice hours.
In Michigan, teens are required to complete 50 hours of driving with a parent or guardian, including 10 hours at night, before taking a road-skills test and being allowed to drive alone.

The program is also available in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine, Nebraska, Colorado, Idaho, Delaware, and Alaska.
