The type and amount of supervised driving you do with them will be the most important life-saving lessons you teach them in their lifetime. Join one of the largest online driver coaching communities today by signing up for our new driver training system!

Our Why

Novice driver collisions are the #1 cause of teen deaths in North America

Driver Inexperience is the number one cause of novice driver collisions.  A driver education program or a couple of practice hours is not enough. They will need lots of practice and only you as their primary driving coach can provide them with the practice they need to not only survive but to build a solid foundation for being a safe and responsible driver!

About the progam

Coaching New Drivers is about community

A community of like-minded parents and guardians of teen drivers determined to decrease the staggering collision, injury, and fatality rates of our young drivers.

This program has several components to help us all achieve this mission:

Coaching from the Passenger Seat

A Parent's Guide to Supervised Driving in the Learner's Stage

Find out how you can be the most important factor in making your teen a safe and responsible driver, while decreasing the probability that the number one cause of novice driver collisions, Driver Inexperience, will play a part in your teen's first years of driving on their own.

This self-guided video series allows you to go at your own pace to match your teen's progress based on how many hours you can commit per week or how quickly your teen progresses.

12 Steps to Provide the Experience they Need

Danger Zone Training

42% of New Drivers Will be Involved in a Collision in Their First Year*

The Danger Zone Training course has been designed to provide coaches and new drivers with important information on how to avoid being impacted by one of these situations.

Each month, for six months, a new lesson will be made available to view on your new driver training platform and one dash cam lesson will be delivered in your monthly coaching newsletter. This type of “drip-learning” has been shown to greatly increase the long-term retention of learned information, enabling your new driver to keep these strategies top of mind during the most critical time of their driving career.

Top 8 Causes of Novice Driver Collisions​

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC.gov) have identified the following 8 Danger Zones shown below as the leading causes contributing to novice driver collisions. 

A Program Designed by Crash Investigators

Mike Pehl is a 30-year veteran crash investigator and driving educator. An accident involving a high school friend changed Mike’s life forever and eventually lead him to his life’s passion of helping parents and new drivers avoid tragedies like the one involving his friend and the millions of drivers and families affected by collisions each year.

The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), an organization representing state highway safety offices, cited parental involvement as the most important factor in keeping young drivers safe on the road: “While development and behavior issues coupled with inexperience impact teen crash risk, parents play a critical role in helping teens survive their most dangerous driving years.”

Great way for my daughter and I to learn together

This parent coaching system has been a great way for my daughter and I to learn together about the best way to approach the daunting task of teaching my teen how to drive. I truly appreciated the "Coaching from the Passenger Seat" program and Mike's direct approach to various situations. I utilized many of the techniques during our practice driving sessions.


Proud Mom of a New Driver

I was very confident when I took my driver's test and started on my own!

My Dad and I went through the videos together and then we went driving! It was really fun learning how to drive with him all the way from the first time in a parking lot to the first drive we did on a real road together! We drove so much, I was very confident when I took my driver's test and started on my own!

Frequently Asked Questions

This course is designed for the coach and the teen. It is beneficial to have both of you review the course material prior to heading out on the road. This will ensure both parties are more prepared, less stressed, and will create a better learning environment.

Ideally, you should start this program when your new driver first receives their Learner’s or Instruction Permit regardless of whether they are taking formal drivers education yet or not.  

If they already have their Learner’s or Instruction Permit, it is recommended you review the lessons, and start at the level they are currently at in their supervised driving experience. 

No, there is only the one-time fee when you purchase the course.

Once registered, you will receive all of the resources we offer including both online courses, monthly newsletters and access to the Coaching New Drivers resource center.

You will have access to the course for 12 months as of your purchase date. This gives you plenty of time to complete the course with your teen before they hit the road!

This course does NOT replace formal driver education. 

This program is a supplement to formal driver education to help parents and their teens build on that driving education. This is achieved through the practice of driving and learning to be aware of dangerous situations.

We also supply tips and tricks every month through our parent newsletter series.
