What Can Chevy’s Teen Driver Technology Do?
Chevy’s Teen Driver Technology is a useful feature for families with inexperienced drivers behind the wheel. If you’re new to the features it provides, or are interested in getting a new Chevy model equipped with this technology, we want to help you make the most of it. Below, we’ll show you what Teen Driver Technology can do to help young drivers improve their driving techniques and to provide parents with peace of mind.
Chevy Teen Driver Technology Features
Teen Driver Technology from Chevy is a great way for new drivers in the family to have their freedom while still keeping parents in the loop. It promotes better driving habits through the four key functions below.
- Custom Alerts: The vehicle will give off audible and visual warnings when traveling over a speed that you have preselected.
- Speed Limiter: Though you can’t keep your teen from speeding, the Speed Limiter can stop them from reaching excessive speeds by restricting the vehicle from going over 85 mph.
- Audio Limiter: If you have concerns that your teen is focusing more on their music than the road, you can set the audio to max out at a certain volume.
- Distance Driven: Through the in-vehicle report card, you can see how far the vehicle has traveled during any given trip.
In-Vehicle Report Card
The features above are designed to help any new drivers in the family learn safe driving habits. As a parent, you can rest easy knowing that they’re working for you even when you aren’t sitting there in the passenger seat.
In fact, an in-vehicle report card helps you know when some of those functions have been activated. For example, you can view how many times the car was forced to activate your preselected speed alert. It also shows you the maximum speed that was reached during the drive and how many times certain safety technologies were activated, such as Forward Collision Avoidance Braking and Stability Control.
