Watching your 17 or 18 year old drive off for the first time since they passed their driving test is a nerve wracking time for any parent. You hope that they remember everything they have been taught and that they adhere to the speed limit and stay safe. It can feel like an out of control moment as you have to let them learn the realities of driving for themselves.
But there is something that you can do.
Vehicle Tracking Companies provide a number of different systems that allow you to track vehicles in terms of their location as well as how the driver and vehicle are performing. This can be a great option for parents who want to help keep their young drivers safe and they can also help to reduce the high insurance costs that come with being a younger driver.
The tracking system will allow you to check that they are staying within the speed limits, monitor where they are travelling and whether they are stuck in traffic and you can then help them to navigate alternative routes. They also act as a deterrent in car thefts as the constant monitoring means they are not an attractive theft.
