Online supplemental course

Is your teen looking to supplement their state-required training? Sign up for AAA’s How to Drive online driving course; your teen can work at their own pace to learn about safe driving. The course includes training videos, crash cam footage, driving simulations, interactive memory exercises, and quizzes. This course is not approved for the licensing requirements in New Hampshire or Vermont, but can supplement your local driving school instruction.3

Upon completion of the in-person classroom course, you will receive a certification for 3-point demerit credit on your New Hampshire or Maine driving record.

Parent-teen driving agreement

AAA research and experience have shown that it’s critical for parents to have candid discussions with their teens and to set specific boundaries about what the Graduated Driver Licensing law means for them.

 

To help parents coach their teens, AAA developed the free Parent-Teen Driving Agreement, which:

  • Outlines rules for your teen driver’s safety

  • Identifies agreed-upon consequences for breaking rules

  • Encourages discussion about expectations for both parent and teen

Driver licensing laws

Many states have different driver licensing laws, especially when it comes to a new driver. To ensure you are following the correct laws, check your state government website for up-to-date information on motor vehicle laws.
