Getting into Gear was developed to introduce Alberta’s youth to the driving experience and to promote safe driving skills and attitudes.

The kit, consisting of a Teacher’s Guide, Student Activity Booklet, and supplemental resources, includes four modules that explore risk management, the graduated driver licensing (GDL) program, parent involvement and teen contracts.


A Geared to Go: Workbook for Coaching New Drivers is also available.
