  • Share the Keys is parent/teen safe driving orientation that is designed to reduce teen driver crash risks by increasing parental involvement. Approximately 90 minutes in length, the orientation is presented by facilitators in community based settings (i.e. schools, libraries) and can be linked to parking permit requirements, classroom driver education programs and back-to-school nights. The orientation is ideally suited for parents and their teens in the pre-permit or permit state of licensure (parents and their teens already holding a probationary license will also benefit).
