We at Landers Chevrolet Cadillac of Joplin know that nothing is more important than the safety of your family. When one of your kids is a new driver, it can be terrifying to let them go off on their own. That’s why Chevrolet introduced their Teen Driver Technology, an available built-in system that helps parents keep their new driver safe, even when they aren’t in the passenger seat to coach them.

It’s no question that teenage drivers aren’t the most careful. Studies have shown that teens are more likely to speed, play their music loud and even neglect to fasten their seatbelt while driving. Thanks to Chevrolet Teen Driver Technology, it’s easier to counsel new drivers to make safer decisions with features like speed-limit caps and audio-system volume limits.

When your teen first enters their vehicle, the Buckle to Drive feature reminds them to buckle their seatbelt before hitting the road with audible and visual alerts. If a driver tries to shift out of park and their seat belt isn’t buckled, the feature won’t allow the driver to shift for 20 seconds. The system can also automatically mute the audio if the driver or front seat passenger isn’t buckled up.

To keep your teenager from speeding, Teen Driver Technology allows parents to set speed warnings or a speed limit. The speed warning provides the driver with visual and audible warnings when they are traveling over a predetermined speed. The speed limiter restricts the vehicle from traveling over 85 miles an hour. To keep young drivers focused, parents can set a limit on audio volume, too. Finally, Teen Driver’s industry-first-and-only in-vehicle report card allows parents to monitor their teen’s driving habits so they can keep track of their performance.

Chevrolet is the only manufacturer to offer Teen Driver Technology to encourage safe driving habits in young drivers. This technology is available on many new Chevys, including the Malibu, Traverse, Equinox, Silverado and more! To find your teen the perfect new car with Teen Driver Technology, come and see us at Landers Chevrolet Cadillac of Joplin. We’d be happy to help you learn more about Teen Driver Technology and show you how to use the system!
