  1. :

    Thank you for producing and offering the DVD on teaching teenagers to drive. I am currently helping teach one of my grandsons to drive safely and the DVD is a tremendous help. Although I have been taught defensive driving techniques for decades and have 45 years of driving experience, your DVD gave me new insights that are helping with the task at hand. Thank you.

    Love this DVD! It helped both my daughters be better drivers.

  3. :

    Very valuable information! This video gave me a real sense of security and plan of action when getting in the car with my new driver. I learned several things about driving for myself, as well. Knowing how to drive is not enough when it comes to teaching someone else!

  4. :

    I was surprisingly impressed. Honestly, I was surprised how impressed I was. I think the neatest thing is it’s for parents. I WISH I’D HAD THIS WHEN I WAS TEACHING MY KIDS TO DRIVE!

  5. :

    This DVD is excellent. There’s great information that helped me know exactly what to do, and reduced the stress for all of us. Having a teen driver is intimidating, but our family had a much better time than my neighbors going through this stage because we watched “Roadworthy.” I even learned some things that helped me be a better driver, too, which was a bonus I wasn’t expecting.

    I’m a grandmother who’s survived teenage drivers. I do feel that purely using drivers ed training is not enough. I purchased the “Roadworthy” DVD for both my kids, who have their own teen drivers coming up now. I’ve made them promise to watch the video together as a family before the young driver touches the keys. And yes, I watched it too, and even though I’m 70 years old and have taken the AARP class every three years and others, I still learned a lot!  Please, parents, know how important it is to be involved.

    I am the father of 2 teenagers and think the DriveSafeRideSafe organization is wonderful.  Their DVD that costs just a few bucks should be a must for every teenager and family to watch.

    I watched this DVD because I had two kids learning to drive. But oh, my gosh, I drive completely differently when I’m going to the cabin now because of what I learned from “Roadworthy.

  10. :

    I’ve gotta tell you: I’ve been driving 40 years, but I learned something from this DVD!

  11. :

    Omg this literally saved my life.  I’m a teen who is new to driving and I was kind of scared.  Then this giant truck was speeding towards me and i remembered that i should roll into a ditch,  so i did and now im alive.  P.S. i didnt even get hurt,  just my car.

  12. :

    I  LOOKED  for something like that when my kids were that age! There WASN’T anything!

    It was a cold January night so I finally had a moment to watch the Roadworthy DVD. I got about 2 chapters in and decided Peter definitely needed to watch it with me. He was not super excited but I was quiet while we watched and he paid attention. I don’t think he wanted to admit it, but there was lots of really good information in it. I asked him if this was what he learned in his drivers ed class and he said “some of it” but I could tell that there was also a lot that he was soaking in. I really think we’ll be on the same page now – and he’s excited to get started. So, yes, I would say your DVD is VERY helpful – the DVD is the expert – and it’s not just me being bossy when I tell him the same things as the DVD    🙂    I’d definitely recommend this to others.

  14. :

    Some great info for anyone who’s driving a car. Whether you’re first starting out, or you’ve been driving forever, we all need a refresher course in driving safety.

  15. :

    Our 16 year old Hannah was reluctant to watch the video at first. She’s a typical teenager who knows it all. Well, it’s amazing what she picked up when we thought she wasn’t paying attention. Adjust mirror, seat belt, parking brake, etc. We are amazed at the change and feel much more confident in her driving. I recommend that parents make their teens watch this video. It may save their life.

    Roadworthy: A Parent’s Guide to Teaching Teens to Drive” is an essential video for those who have taken on the important role of teaching a beginning driver the fundamentals of safe driving. Perhaps you have been crash free, citation free, and believe you are a skilled driver. However, do you think you may have developed some short cuts and unsafe practices that you would not like to pass on to a new driver? For example, when approaching a stop sign do you really fully stop your vehicle or just slow down if the path of travel is clear? Do you even realize that you may be illegally rolling through a stop sign?  
           
    I have been a public school Driver Education instructor in a large metropolitan area for over 25 years. When I first viewed this video, I learned new procedures; assured myself that I was practicing some safe driving techniques, but realized I needed to refresh other driving practices where I had developed bad habits. 

    “Roadworthy: A Parent’s Guide to Teaching Teens to Drive” will define what skills and procedures need to be taught to a new driver along with refreshing the skills of the instructing adult driver. The video shows a new driver experiencing instruction on the road, in traffic, and driving through situations where instruction is needed. Mike Pehl is an experienced crash investigator with experience in driver education instruction. 

    This is an instructional video that I use in my Driver Education classroom and I provide information for those who would find it beneficial to purchase their own copy to review the safe driving practices before being licensed as well as a future skill refresher so unsafe driving practices do not develop through experience. 

    I know this video will be a learning experience for the beginning driver as well as the parent or adult instructor.

    Best DVD for teens. Our teen is challenging at times. They think they know it all. Plays his music way too loud as he is driving. Thinks he can’t get a ticket for it. We tell him that it is a major distraction. As usual, he will learn the hard way. He signed a contract with us on the rules of having the privilege to drive. He knows what the consequences will be if he breaks them. Thank you AND KEEP THE DVD’S COMING… as we need all the help we can get!

    Greetings. We found the video very informative and enjoyed watching it. My 11 year old even liked watching it even though she is not of driving age yet.

  19. :

    I like how the steps and ideas to help parents and students are easy to understand and very practical. Doing these steps and practices will make teen drivers and experienced drivers even more Roadworthy.

  20. :

    Every home with young drivers can benefit from watching this video.. Or better said, “ everyone who drives, regardless of age,  can benefit from Mike’s insights. We can all use a refresher course on Mike’s wise counsel – especially those who are just taking on the road.  And I say this with a lot of conviction as I lost my son to a car crash at age 16.
