What is Chevy Teen Driver Technology?

Every car has the potential to be someone’s first car, and Chevy is making its vehicles more teen driver friendly with the addition of a new feature called Teen Driver Technology. What is Chevy Teen Driver Technology? We will run through all the features of this new tech and even give you some tips for keeping your teen driver safe.

Chevy Teen Driver Technology max volume settingMake your teen wear their seatbelt

Did you know that only 61% of high school students wear their seatbelts when driving with another person in the car? That statistic is frightening, but Chevy has a few solutions. Your teen driver will get the standard seat belt reminder. However, Teen Driver Technology will mute the radio until both front passenger seat belts are buckled.

Teen Driver Technology will even let you set a max volume to keep your teen from listening to music too loud when they should be concentrating on driving.

Did you know that your teen driver is more likely to speed than an older driver? That may be a given, but it’s a scary reality. Luckily, with Teen Driver Technology, you can set a custom speed alert that will provide both audio and visual warnings when your teen driver goes beyond a set speed.

You can also enable a speed restrictor that will restrict the max speed of the vehicle to below 85 mph.

Teen Driver Technology can provide parents with an in-vehicle report card that will tell you how many times safety equipment such as forward collision avoidance braking was utilized, what the top speed was achieved, how far the vehicle traveled, how many times the throttle was held wide open, and more. Each time the report card is checked, it can also be reset, but only by authorized parents.
