Parent driving behavior also tends to influence teen driving behavior – bad habits included. The Alive at 25 Parent Program focuses on helping parents know and understand the defensive driving principles their young driver learns in the Alive at 25 program and additionally helps parents have a strong knowledge of the driving laws that relate to their new drivers. Officers that teach the class help parents develop strategies to be a mentor and guide to their new driver.
