The Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles launches an extension to the Parent's Supervised Driving Program, a new mobile app sponsored by Ford Motor Company, Road Ready.
"RoadReady eliminates the question of overestimated time and allows parents and teens to focus on driving skills, roadway conditions and enhanced experiences, while the app automatically and accurately tracks their time together," says DMV Director Jennifer Cohan.
The app tracks roadway types and weather conditions to encourage parents and teens to spend more time driving together in a variety of conditions. At any time throughout the supervised driving process, parents and teens can also export a printable driving log with a list of all of their supervised driving sessions. This log can be delivered to the teens Driver Education instructor in compliance with Delaware's GDL driving log requirements.
“The skills outlined in this guide and app are meant to help teens learn to be better drivers. It is one of the ways Ford works to help teens,” said Steve Kenner, Global Director of Ford’s Automotive Safety Office. “In addition to this program, Ford also offers Driving Skills for Life, which gives teens advanced real world training. Ford also offers MyKey technology, which gives parents options to help encourage safe driving behaviors even when the parents aren’t in the car.”
