Initially developed for the insurance industry to reduce claims, we are proud to offer this proven and effective training program to teens and parents. teenSMART is the only crash avoidance training program for teen drivers that has ever been scientifically shown to significantly reduce teen driver crashes.

Crash Reduction Chart


  • Computer-based training: The computer training is a series of full-motion video driving simulations that come on a set of 6 CD-ROMs that your teen loads on the home computer.
  • Parent Guide and Student Workbook: These instructional manuals guide you through all the steps of the program including the Parent-Teen activities. These activities include drive time in the vehicle with the parent and the teen.
  • DVD: This video includes lessons presented by mature teens in a fun and informative “MTV-style” format. The lessons include discussions about risks and avoiding crashes. The video lasts about an hour and is fully integrated with lessons in the other materials.
  • Driving Practice Manual: This manual helps parents meet any mandated, in-vehicle supervised drive time requirements. It includes over 50 activities that provide over 70 hours of in-vehicle structured exercises.
  • Allstate and AAA insurance companies offer a teenSMART graduate discount. They vary from 3% to 20% of your premium each year. Considering that adding a teen driver to your insurance policy can add $1500 (or more) to your premium each year, even a small annual discount can pay for the teenSMART program. Even if your insurance carrier does not offer a discount in your state/province, avoiding even a single car crash by using the proven crash avoidance skills taught by teenSMART more than pays for the program. Consider the costs of such a crash – auto repairs (thousands of dollars), increased insurance premiums and increased insurance deductibles (if the policy isn’t cancelled altogether).
  • Insurance deductibles are usually $500 or more. teenSMART graduates get into fewer collisions and pay lower deductibles – and that saves you money too.
  • Certificate of Completion: There is a certification test at the end of the computer time. Successfully completing teenSMART may qualify your teen for an insurance discount (varies by carrier and by state).

You will need the following items to complete teenSMART at home:

  • A DVD Player.
  • Any personal computer running Windows 95 or higher, 32 MB RAM, Pentium 200 MHz processor, 4X CD-ROM drive.
