Kia Motors expands partnership with B.R.A.K.E.S. Teen Pro-Active Driving School to provide no-cost defensive driving instruction

Kia Motors America (KMA) has furthered its commitment to keeping young drivers safe on the road by expanding the company's partnership with the B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe) Teen Pro-Active Driving School to help the 501(c)(3) charity offer additional classes across the country, increasing its geographic reach and the total number of teens that receive this lifesaving training.

In conjunction with National Teen Driver Safety Week, Oct. 19-25, Kia and B.R.A.K.E.S. will provide an estimated 200 teens and their parents with free, hands-on defensive driving instruction in new Kia vehicles. These 200 students will add to the more than 12,000 teens that have already graduated from B.R.A.K.E.S.' intensive half-day training, which includes a distracted driving exercise, emergency braking using the anti-lock braking system (ABS), evasive maneuvering and skid-control practice. Kia is the Official Vehicle and presenting sponsor of the B.R.A.K.E.S. Teen Pro-Active Driving School.
