Young Driver Emergency Kit: Must-Haves for Back-to-School Season

Posted on September 11, 2023 by Active Insurance

Soon, students will begin their after-school programs, and all those new, young drivers will explore the roads at different times. If your child is new to driving, safe driving habits are essential. This includes being prepared for unexpected road situations. Let’s explore the importance of a student driver emergency kit and what it takes to make one of your own. 

Your Checklist

Unfortunately, road emergencies can happen when you least expect them and being prepared can make all the difference. Fully equipped emergency kits can help drivers of any age remain calm and safe during unexpected breakdowns, accidents, or adverse weather conditions. A well-equipped kit should include:

  • First aid supplies include bandages, antiseptic wipes, adhesive tape, pain medication, and other necessary personal medications.
  • A list of emergency contacts that includes family members, friends, your insurance details, and even the contact information of your local police department. 
  • Basic tools include multi-tools, flashlights, jumper cables, and a tire pressure gauge. 
  • Non-perishable snacks and bottled water to sustain passengers during delays.
  • A reflective vest and cones make anyone getting down and the vehicle much more visible. 
  • A flashlight and portable charger to keep all necessary electronics charged and ready to go.
