Traffic crashes are a leading cause of death amongst new drivers each year. While adding a new driver is an exciting milestone for many households, it can also be a significant source of stress for parents and guardians. Inclement weather, lengthy trips, distraction, drowsiness, and impaired driving are just a few of the issues that new drivers must learn to handle and avoid.  

Driver education programs typically provide instruction on traffic laws, vehicle operation, and handling driving hazards. However, many programs do not thoroughly address distracted and impaired driving. Some programs may briefly touch on these issues but fail to offer young drivers alternatives and strategies to avoid these risky behaviors. 

The Plan My Ride program teaches these much-needed avoidance skills through an easy-to-use web-based program. This self-paced, interactive traffic safety education program provides young drivers the added knowledge and strategies to avoid distracted and impaired driving. Leading behavioral psychologists developed this research-based program and tested it for effectiveness. 

Students access the program and complete five separate lessons designed in look, feel, tone, and content to engage them effectively. 360-degree videos allow students to apply and practice the learned skills in real-life scenarios before taking a knowledge test and printing a certificate of completion. 


“As a parent, I worry that I have not done enough to help prepare my teen for the responsibility of driving. Driver Education addresses traffic laws, hazards, and rules of the road, but what about distracted driving? Plan My Ride provides “peace of mind” that my young driver has the knowledge and skills to avoid driving distracted or under the influence.”
