Successfully getting a driver’s license in Colorado does not just magically happen. There is a good deal of study and driving practice involved, at least for teen drivers that pass it the first time.
As we have pointed out in previous articles, teenage drivers must pass the written test to get a driving permit in Colorado. The permit then allows you to practice-drive with a licensed adult driver or professional driving instructor.
For parents conducting parent-teen driving lessons, there is a driving technique that can greatly help your teenage driver with their driving skills, and thus relieve you of parental anxiety.
It is called “commentary driving” and is a huge benefit for teenage drivers having a hard time concentrating while driving or if their safe-driving skills need some serious work.
