I, _______________________, agree to the terms of this contract allowing me the privilege of driving. If, at any time, I violate this agreement, or am observed driving recklessly or endangering others, the driving privilege will be forfeited to the extent and degree of violation.

1. I will obey all traffic laws and the posted speed limits and follow safe driving practices at all times. If I get a ticket, I will lose driving privileges for 6 months.

2. I will not have any controlled substances (drugs or alcohol) or be under their influence in the car at any time.

3. I will not race, chase other vehicles or operate the car in a reckless or illegal manner.

4. I agree to pay for damages that I incur that are not covered by insurance; and all deductibles for any damage that is covered.

7. I will not allow any of my friends or passengers to drive the car that is in my possession.

8. If, for any reason, I ever feel less than 100% able to drive safely, I will call my parents at any time to come and get me. There will never be a punishment for executing sound judgment. If my parents are unavailable, they will reimburse the cost of a cab.

9. I will inform my parents about where I am driving, who will be riding with me, when I plan to return, and I will call to let them know if I will be late coming home.

11. I will not use a cell phone while I am driving. I will not use an MP3 player with earbuds or headphones while I am driving. I will not play music in the car at a volume that would prevent me from becoming aware of traffic situations or emergency sirens around me.
