We used this scientific approach to help teen and mature drivers overcome these specific causes of crashes." said Dr.
Richard Harkness, CEO of ADEPT Driver. "I am looking forward to sharing the science behind the
Lifelong Driver programs with driving school professionals."
teenSMART and Lifelong Driver are proven crash reduction programs that improve drivers' skills and help teens and mature drivers recognize and avoid risk when they are driving. Both include computer based training, point-of-view driving simulations, interactive video segments, at-home activities, and optional in-car exercises.
teenSMART has been clinically proven to reduce teen driver crashes by up to 30%. Teens that complete the program have fewer traffic citations, fewer and less severe accidents, and fewer deductible payouts. A number of leading insurance companies offer a discount for teenSMART completion, including Allstate, AAA Northern California,
Nevada and Utah Insurance Exchange, Liberty Mutual, MAPFRE, American Commerce, and Commerce Insurance.
Lifelong Driver allows mature drivers to remain safely in the driver's seat longer and maintain their lifestyle and independence by using real-life driving situations to improve driving skills.
