Most parents are a little nervous about sending their teens out on the road. The only thing that helps is knowing your teen is as prepared as possible for any situation that may come their way. That means great driver’s education, basic knowledge of car repair/maintenance/safety, and a car full of essential safety items.

For your convenience, we put together a checklist of the top must-haves for every safe vehicle - use it to make sure your teen is fully prepared.

  1. Jumper Cables
  2. Car Owner’s Manual
  3. Tire Gauges
  4. Tire Change Supplies
    • Spare tire
    • Jack
    • Wrench
  5. Car Cell Charger
  6. Emergency Phone Numbers
  7. Insurance Card
  8. Cold Weather Readiness Kit
