There is nothing more important to you, than the safety of your family. If you have a teenage driver at home this fact can spring to mind every time you hear the car keys jingle. This is why Buick and GMC have a built-in system that helps you coach your new teen driver. Even if you are not present, GM Teen Driver Technology can be right there, riding shot gun, so to speak.

GM Teen Driver Technology lets you set a speed alert, a volume limit for the infotainment system and more. In addition, GM Teen Driver Technology provides an industry first and only vehicle report card. This report card makes it easy to track your teen’s driving performance.

The Teen Driver in-vehicle report card may keep track of the following, depending on the vehicle: Distance driven. Maximum speed reached. Overspeed warnings issued. Stability control events. Antilock braking events. Traction control activations. Wide-open throttle events. Forward Collision Alerts, if equipped. Forward Automatic Braking events, if equipped. Tailgating Alerts, if equipped.

Studies show that in comparison to adults, teenage drivers are more likely to make poor decisions like speeding or not fastening their seat belts. Teen Driver gives parents the tools to discuss and correct some of the possible mistakes their new drivers make on the road.

Teen Driver has a number of safety features, from muting audio until front-seat occupants are buckled to automatically turning on available active safety technologies like Side Blind Zone Alert, Forward Collision Alert and Forward Automatic Braking. The in-vehicle report card shows information about your teen’s driving so you can identify potential problem areas and coach your new driver on improvements.

Parents activate Teen Driver through the Settings menu on their vehicle’s infotainment system, such as Buick IntelliLink and GMC IntelliLink. When the system is on, all of the vehicle’s active safety features are on and cannot be turned off. It also allows the parent to set a maximum speed alert and limit the maximum volume for the audio system.
