Event Details


  • Permit or driver's license (teens ages 15-19)
  • 30 HOURS of driving time behind the wheel
  • At least 1 parent needs to attend with the teen

(This is a 4 hour hands-on course)

B.R.A.K.E.S Teen Pro-Active Driving School is a four-hour program that partners your teen with professional driving instructors to teach the skills of defensive driving in a controlled, hands-on environment.

This life-saving experience is fun for your teen and they will leave with a great level of confidence. The bonus is that parents are offered a chance to get behind the wheel and experience some of the same courses as the teens.


If this course is FREE, why do I have to pay $99?

Attendance to BRAKES is free to all, but we require a $99 deposit to secure your reservation spot.

Due to bank and registration fees we are unable to process credit card refunds after the class is taken, therefore, 
all Credit card payments are NOT considered refundable deposits, they are considered donations.

The BRAKES classes are offered free to all. To take advantage of this opportunity you MUST read and understand the following:
To get a refund on your $99 deposit you must mail a check to BRAKES. Your check will be held until the class date and then brought to the BRAKES class that you attend. At the completion of the class you have the option of picking up your check or leaving it as a donation to BRAKES.  If you choose to leave your check with BRAKES, a 501(c)(3) organization, your contribution is tax deductible and a receipt will be emailed to you.
