What is Teen Driver Technology in Chevy Vehicles?

Do you have a newly licensed teen driver in your family? When they borrow the car to make their first solo trip around Birmingham, you might feel like a bundle of nerves until they return safely home. Chevrolet understands this worry and aims to provide greater peace of mind to parents like you with Teen Driver Technology featured as standard in every new car, truck, and SUV in its lineup. What is Teen Driver Technology? It’s a proprietary safety technology designed by GM that allows you to enable audio limits, a speed warning and limiter, and other advanced safety features when your teen is driving alone.

Teen Driver Technology Features

Currently, no other auto brand seen on Vestavia Hills streets offers a safety feature designed specifically for new drivers. Teen Driver Technology can be found in every new Chevrolet model since 2016, with the following features provided as standard in the system:

  • Speed Limiter: When activated, this feature caps the maximum achievable speed at 85 mph.
  • Speed Warning: For driver safety on freeways, the maximum speed limiter cannot be set below 85 mph. However, you can set up an audible and visual warning to remind the driver when they’ve exceeded the speed limit you’re most comfortable with, even if it’s below 85 mph.
  • Audio Limit: Loud music can be a distraction on the road. Teen Driver Technology allows you to lock in a maximum audio volume so you can feel assured your new driver is remaining attentive while enjoying their tunes.
  • Seat Belt Audio Mute: If your teen is picking up a friend, this feature keeps the audio muted until both occupants have buckled their seatbelts.

These are the baseline features for Teen Driver Technology. For even greater peace of mind when you can’t be in the passenger seat, consider these available upgrades:

  • Industry-First Buckle to Drive: If the driver isn’t buckled into their seat when they start the car, this feature will lock the shift knob in Park for 20 seconds with an audible and visual warning so the driver knows why this is happening.
  • Industry-First In-Vehicle Report Card: When your teen returns home from driving in Bessemer, this feature allows you to view a detailed “report card” that shows you if features like the anti-lock brakes or lane departure warning were activated. It’s a great feature for creating opportunities to discuss good driving habits!

Teen Driver Technology makes Chevrolet vehicles some of the safest cars for teen drivers. Compact models like the Chevy Malibu or the Chevy Spark are affordable first-time cars, and you can even find them for under $15k in our used inventory!

In addition to Teen Driver Technology, new Chevy vehicles are now also offering the Chevy Safety Assist suite with Forward Collision Alert, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Following Distance Indicator, and more.
