How Does Chevrolet’s Teen Driver Technology Work?

If you’re a parent with a teenage son or daughter, one of the biggest concerns you’ll have when buying a car is the safety of your kids when they take it for a drive. GM offers a unique built-in system technology called Teen Driver Technology on most of its Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, and GMC models that help you train and coach your new driver, even when you’re not with them. How does this innovative family-friendly technology work? Read this blog from Eric von Schledorn Auto Group – your favorite Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and Ford dealership in the Milwaukee, WI area to find out.   

Technology with parental instincts  

Studies have shown that teenage drivers are more likely to make poor driving decisions like speeding, not wearing seatbelts, and distracted driving, and it comes as no surprise. The innovative Teen Driver Technology or Teen Driver Mode offers several life-saving features or tools that help parents like you rest at ease when your teenager takes your car keys. It lets you set a speed alert, a volume limit, and even track your teen’s driving skills with the industry-first, one-of-a-kind in-vehicle report card. Let’s learn more about these features below.

Buckle to Drive

Buckle to Drive is an industry-first feature that does exactly what its name implies. It is designed to help young drivers remember to buckle their seat belts up before they hit the gas. If your teen tries to get out of the parking garage and their seatbelt isn’t buckled, the feature won’t let them shift for 20 seconds. It will even display audio and visual alerts too.  

Speed Warning  

The Speed Warning feature sets audible and visual warnings when your teen drives over a pre-selected speed limit.

Speed limiter  

Speed limiter lets you restrict the maximum vehicle speed to 85 miles per hour.   

Audio limit  

Audio limit lets you set a limit on the audio volume so that your teen doesn’t raise the in-car audio system’s volume to distracting levels.   

Seat belt audio mute  

Seat belt audio mute is yet another unique feature that automatically mutes the audio until your teen and the front passenger buckle up their seat belts.   

We hope this blog gave you an idea of what to expect from your next Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, or GMC’s safety features. Keep reading our other blogs to learn how to set up Teen Driver.
