Jumper cables

Help ensure that your young driver doesn’t get stranded with a dead battery with these 4-gauge 20-foot-long ones from Amazon. They come with a carry bag for easy storage and retrieval.

Digital tire inflator

This digital tire inflator with a built-in pressure gauge makes it easy for your young driver to keep tires at the proper inflation to boost traction and fuel economy. It’s especially helpful if you live in an area that experiences extreme winter temperatures, which can cause tire pressure to drop significantly on your teen’s early morning or late evening commutes.

Connected car assistant

The Bouncie connected car assistant plugs into the vehicle’s OBD port, so you can monitor your teen’s driving habits and location even when you’re not there beside them. It also keeps car maintenance simple as they learn the ropes of car care. It continually monitors the vehicle’s health and will send a smartphone notification when an item needs service.

Gift cards for gas

Fuel can be expensive, especially if your young driver has a long commute to school or work. A Visa gift card or gas station gift card is a thoughtful item to include in your driver starter kit.

Smartphone holder

This universal car phone mount will encourage your young driver to keep their hands safely on the wheel and eyes on the road. It accommodates a variety of phone sizes and attaches to the dashboard right above the air vents, so it’s compatible with a variety of vehicle designs.

Charging cable

Ensure that your teen driver has a fully-powered phone with this 3-in-1 cable for the car. It has Lightning, micro-USB, and USB-C attachments so they can charge multiple devices during the drive.
