12/17/22 to 12/18/22 @ zMax Dragway, Concord, NC

Event Details


  • Ages 16-20 (if attending North Carolina classes ONLY) along with a valid permit or driver's license)
  • At least 30 hours of driving experience behind the wheel
  • ONLY 1 parent per teen may attend with their teen/teens

(This is a 3 hour hands-on course)

B.R.A.K.E.S Teen Pro-Active Driving School is a three-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 the school is free why do I need to send in a $99 refundable deposit?

Attendance to BRAKES is free to all, but we require a $99 deposit to secure your reservation spot. A deposit can be in the form of a credit card or a check.

Credit Card: Due to bank and reservation 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. Your contribution is tax deductible and a tax donation receipt will be emailed to you.

Check: 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 tax donation receipt will be emailed to you.

What cars are used for the driving courses?

What is the refund/cancellation policy?
