Teens on the Road to Safety
We’ll help you teach your new driver how to be safer on the road.
Watch the full Insurance Institute of Highway Safety’s video: Young Drivers: The High Risk Years.
Teenagers can earn rewards by driving safely and not having accidents, claims and violations. Plus, they can learn other safe driving tips, such as buckling up and not drinking and driving.
With “Drive Safe and Cash In,” each teen who qualifies will receive a $50 prepaid card* for his/her first and second year of the program. Enrollment is open to licensed teens aged 16 and 17 only. Your teen must also be an auto policyholder with MetLife Auto & Home or insured on a parent’s or guardian’s MetLife Auto & Home policy (at the time of enrollment and the time of award redemption).
How do you enroll in this program? First add your teen driver to your policy by calling 1-800-422-4272. Or, if you or your parents/guardians are a MetGroup℠ customers and receive insurance through a program offered by your employers, call us at 1 800 GET-MET 1.
Then print out the enrollment materials. Next complete the “Sunday Drive” requirements, during which the teen must drive 20 times with a parent or guardian in the passenger seat. Once your teen has completed the Sunday drives, send in the completed log indicating the date, destination and mileage for each trip. If the teen driver remains claim- and incident-free for one year after his or her enrollment, we will send him or her a $50 American Express reward card as congratulations for beginning a lifetime of safer driving.
We also have some other materials that could help your teen to become a safer driver:
Our Teaching Your Teen to Drive (Without Driving Each Other Crazy!) gives you tips on working with your teen to learn to drive.
Insurance Institute of Highway Safety’s brochure: Beginning Teen Drivers discusses the special challenges of new drivers.
Follow our series of weekly driving lessons for your teen available on the MetLife Blog.
*The teen driver will receive the $50 American Express reward card within 60 days of the anniversary of his or her enrollment, provided that he or she was claim- and incident-free for that 12-month period. The teen’s enrollment anniversary is the same date as the next auto policy renewal with MetLife Auto & Home following our receipt of a completed enrollment agreement. (The renewal date is listed on your insurance policy.) For example, if we received your enrollment agreement in June and your policy renews August 1, then August 1 would be your enrollment date.
**MetLife Auto & Home reserves the right to alter and/or cancel the program at any time.
