Teen Driving

This study is open to teens ages 16-20 who are about to receive or recently received their driver’s license, and a parent.

We are looking for teens with CHD who are 15 to 19 years old and have a learner’s permit or valid driver’s license, or interest in obtaining a learner’s permit or driver’s license and their parent/legal guardian. The study will be conducted remotely.

Three emerging innovators at CHOP Research Institute presented their high-impact research at a session in January.

We are asking teens with autism between the ages of 16-21 who have expressed interest in learning how to drive or have received their learner's permit in the past 3 months, and their parent/primary caregiver to participate in an interview study.

We are asking both parents and their child between ages 16-18 who recently received their learner's permit to partner with us as we learn more about teen driving safety. We are looking for children both with and without an ADHD diagnosis to participate.

The purpose of this research study is to figure out if a new smartphone app impacts distracted driving, and to learn parent and teen perspectives on the app.

Our Driving after Concussion study needs the help of both healthy and recently concussed teen partners in our research to understand how concussion affects driving behaviors in teens.

We want to study brain responses during simulated driving and are currently looking for participants 16-24 years old or those who have had brain surgery.

This study invites teens 16-18 years old and their parent/guardian to partner with the Center for Injury Research and Prevention as we investigate a potential mobile app to prevent smartphone use while driving.

Parents and their child between 16 and 21 on the autism spectrum are both asked to partner with us for this study as we learn more about the decisions you make about transportation, including driving. We also hope to learn about how transportation influences quality of life and other outcomes.
