B.R.A.K.E.S Teen Pro-Active Driving School

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to view B.R.A.K.E.S Teen Pro-Action Driving School in action at the ZMax Dragway in Concord, NC!

B.R.A.K.E.S, which stands for Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe, is a Teen Pro-Active Driving School. The organization was created by NHRA driver Doug Herbert. The motivational passion in developing the non-profit organization was fostered from his own tragic experience. The mission of B.R.A.K.E.S is to prevent injuries and save lives by hands on training and educating teenage drivers and their parents about the importance of safe and responsible driving.

The teen driving school takes driving education to the next level with professional driving instructors encouraging, building driving skills and vehicle handling education with the teenage students. The various driving courses include a Wet Skid Pad, Panic Stop, Accident Avoidance, Distraction and Slalom course.

It was exciting to view the interaction between the professional drivers and students. The building of driving skills and confidence behind the driving wheel will properly prepare the young drivers for real life situations.
