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

Rating: 5 stars  

As the mother of two BRAKES graduates I can tell you the course was a priceless experience. My kids, like most, walked in early one Saturday morning not necessarily thrilled to be there and walked out four hours later with huge smiles and a lot more confidence behind the wheel. They both escaped some very close calls while driving and I am convinced that if it hadn't been for BRAKES the outcome would have been much worse. As a board member I can tell you we get letters all the time from participants who write to thank Doug Herbert and the staff for saving their lives. Phrases like "I heard the BRAKES instructor in my head so I knew what to do" or "when x happened I had learned not to panic" when faced with a serious crisis on the road are common themes. BRAKES is amazing at teaching kids ways to handle a car when things go wrong - which they almost inevitably will. I am very thankful my now-adult children are now armed with driving skills they'll have for the rest of their lives - and I learned quite a bit along the way as well.
