“Completely full classes for the first ‘Mopar Road Ready Powered by Dodge’ visit to Phoenix showcases the need for our program, which is dedicated to training teens on the critical skills they need to stay safe behind the wheel,” said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA – Global. “The Mopar brand loves being fast at the track, but it’s even more important to stay safe on the streets. This is why we continue to support this important initiative to educate and empower teens with tools and the hands-on experience that will help keep them safe on the road.”

The program is available to teens between the ages of 15-19 with a learner’s permit or driver’s license and at least 30 hours of driving experience. Participants benefit from a proven curriculum and skilled instructors provided by the B.R.A.K.E.S. organization. A 3:1 student-to-instructor ration allows for quality time with each teen both in the classroom and during the hands-on training portions of the program.
Each teen driver’s participation in the training program includes a companion experience for a parent or adult guardian who also will actively take part. “Mopar Road Ready Powered by Dodge” sessions provide a brief classroom review of core driving topics, including proper seat positioning, hand positioning and basic vehicle dynamics. Teens then receive advanced behind-the-wheel training through a variety of on-track course modules, such as accident avoidance, distraction, panic stop, wheel drop and wet skid pad.
