When your team signs up for Teens in the Driver Seat each year, your welcome email includes survey information and instructions. These anonymous surveys are a great way to get your TDS program started because they measure what the teens in your school know, their attitudes towards risks, and how they drive. Conducting these surveys on your campus once per year also lets you see how things are changing year-over-year.
What’s in it for you.
Once completed, you will receive a report, complete with charts, showing all the information collected and giving you a snapshot of which risks your team can concentrate on for the year. Plus, these Annual Surveys are required to receive rewards for our All-Stars program. Even if your school only does the survey, you’ll be an Outstanding School and earn $100 for your school.

Why surveys are important to us.
These surveys also tell us how we’re doing as a program. We evaluate overall, regional, rural vs. urban, and more. They are vital to our work and a large reason we receive the funding we do to keep the program going.
If you need your instructions again, don’t hesitate to reach out to your regional rep!
