With over 30,000 graduates we get regular feedback from teens and their parents about crashes avoided & lessons learned. Here's one of our favorites:
"My daughter was driving with her best friend, also 18, in the front passenger seat towards her old high school. A pickup truck didn't see her coming down the road, in oncoming traffic around 40-50mph. And turned left directly in front of her. Thanks to your instructors' teaching, she slammed on the brake, maintained control of her car, swerved successfully around the pickup truck just barely missing it.
As my daughter reported to me: ‘Mom, I just have to tell you, taking that course saved Brooke's and my life today! I didn't have time to think... I just reacted as they taught us. We would have been killed... At least an ambulance ride... The pickup driver was so shaken up and apologetic. He kept saying how sorry he was... He said he just didn't see us. I wouldn't have known what to do, or slam on the brakes, if it weren't for this course and what they taught us.....it saved our lives.’
So, can you please tell the course director and driver from Sunday, that they saved 2 lives on Friday: my daughter and her best friend.
I am flying today to drop my daughter off to start her freshman year. If it weren't for your course, and the superb teaching, we would be having a very different experience this week...and not celebrating a daughter's milestone to begin college, but a far worse parent's worst nightmare instead.
So, just wanted to thank you and your instructors from the bottom of my heart.”
