Apps to Keep Your Teen Driver Safe

Apps help us with all facets of our life, and they can even help keep your teen driver safe. 

Getting a driver’s license is like a right of passage for most teens. It’s their first taste of real freedom. Unfortunately for them, the taste of freedom is eerily similar to the taste of growing up and responsibility. Nonetheless, teens are teens and parents are parents. Some parents may not trust their teens to drive–at least for the first few months post-driver’s license. If you want to make sure that your teen is practicing safe driving, download these apps.

Driving Apps for Teen Safety

Drive Smart

Price: Free for the first seven days, then a one-time payment of $14.99 for a lifetime subscription.

Function: With both the basic and plus versions, drivers can set their phone into drive mode, which sends all calls to voicemail while texts are muted and reply with an automatic response. Exclusive to the plus version is the ability to detect when the smartphone is in a moving vehicle and automatically activates the program. The driver can disable this lock, but this notifies the parents.

Canary

Price: Basic version is free; Drive Smart Plus is $4.99 per month.

Function: This app monitors your child’s driving practices. You receive real-time notifications of your teen’s driving behavior, including things like texting, calling, exceeding a predetermined speed limit, encroaching off-limit areas, or staying past curfew. This app drains the battery, so make sure they have a charger in their car to keep their phone from dying.
