Review for Put On The Brakes Inc, Concord, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My two oldest children went through the program. They learned skills that are not taught in Driver's Ed but are crucial to being safe. Among other things, they learned and practiced how to safely get a wheel back on the road, how to control a car in a skid, how to safely handle antilock brakes, how to avoid a sudden emergency like a child or deer in the road, and they climbed into the cab of a truck surrounded by cars and saw the blind spots.

The teachers are professional driving teachers who teach folks like the Secret Service, and when i got in the car with one, I learned a lot.

The school is free, paid for entirely with donations, although i donated my deposit.

I sent my kids because a friend's daughter had gone through the program and credited BRAKEs with saving her life and two others in the car when she hit a patch of ice and skidded into the left lane.

These people are good, people, obviously dedicated to keeping young drivers safe, and with no other agenda. I was so impressed.
