What do students have to say?

Since Alive at 25 was implemented in Utah in October 2007, over 11,000 students have taken the course. Of those students, 99% said that Alive at 25 will make them a safer driver and 98% would recommend that their peers take the course as well. Here is what a few of them had to say:

"This was a course that took Driver's Ed to a new level.”

"This really helped me understand how big of a responsibility driving is. The class gave me good tools to be a safer, better, more defensive driver.”

"I feel if I hadn't taken this class and just did my hours and drove, I wouldn't be ready.”

"I learned how to be a defensive driver. Driving safe is a good choice that can save your life and others surrounding you. Be responsible with your life knowing that you can affect someone else's. Make good choices and be Alive at 25!”

"This really opened my eyes and makes me never want to hurt my family or friends by making stupid choices.”

"I came into it thinking it was just another class and am leaving with all intentions of becoming a better driver.”
