Teaching Teen To Drive
Original post made by PA Parent on Jun 12, 2012
Does anyone have any ideas on good locations to practice driving? Or any tips in general on teaching a teen to drive?

Continue to let the driver's ed instructer teach your daughter to drive. Getting information on how to do something from a lot of well meaning folks would only confuse your daughter. Let the instructer do his job.

A few years ago, when my daughter first got her driver's permit, we first started driving around on an almost empty office building parking lot on the week-end.
We'll probably do the same thing with our other child

This might not apply to your daughter, but when I was first learning to drive, I found it really helpful to drive every day to school. Since it was basically the same route, there were no surprises. I knew where the stop signs were, the stoplights, etc., and could just focus on my "technique," so to speak.
So I think driving a regular route at first would be helpful to acclimate someone to driving.
