Teen Electronic Event Notification Service (TEENS) is a parental notification program made available by the Department of Motor Vehicles. TEENS notifies the parent of a driver under age 18 when specific events are added to the driver record of the teen. The events include tickets, traffic violation convictions, driver license suspensions and certain accidents.
By being informed of these events, parents will be able to take an more active role in the development of safe driving behaviors by their children. Also, this program will help parents be aware of any potentially risky habits which develop during the early driving career of their teenager.
Parental enrollment in TEENS is voluntary, and there is no fee. There are three ways for parents to enroll in the program:
Enrollment in the program will continue until your teen is 18 years old. When the teen becomes 18, the enrollment is automatically discontinued.
