Secretary Davey Boston RMV, January 10, 2012MassDOT Secretary Richard A. Davey today joined MassDOT RMV Registrar Rachel Kaprielian at the Boston Chinatown RMV branch to announce the availability of a new guide to optimize the 40-hours of supervised driving teens are required to complete under parental supervision prior to receiving their license.

“As young people across Massachusetts learn to drive our roadways with obvious excitement, I hope the availability of 'The Parent’s Supervised Driving Guide' will ease some of the stress and concern often experienced by the parents and guardians of new drivers,” said Secretary Davey.

Teens obtaining their learner’s permit will be given a copy of the “The Parent’s Supervised Driving Guide” at RMV branches in the Commonwealth. The guide is intended for use by parents and guardians.  The guide is provided at no cost to families or to taxpayers, through a partnership with Safe Roads Alliance, a not-for-profit advocate for improved highway safety and the guides sponsor, Safety Insurance.

The guide is divided into eleven skill sets, such as parking, backing up, city and highway driving, and asks parents and teens to initial each lesson as the material is covered and the lesson is completed. Within the guide, a log is provided to record the required driving hours, the skills covered and the time and weather conditions. The guide also offers parents guidance on how to approach each lesson as well as how to continue education once the 40 hours are completed.
