    I thought this class was educational and helpful in a lot of ways. Mainly by being a judge free zone. It made this embarrassing experience more comfortable while guiding us through how to make better decisions and practice healthier lifestyles. Don't drink and drive.

    Ryan , Utica, NY

    BJ and the instructors are very kind and understanding. I learned a lot about DWI, but also other important safety tips/advice about all facets of driving. I was hesitant going in but it was a very friendly atmosphere without judgment.

    Great class, never feel like you are being punished. Learned a lot. BJ is a great teacher and makes learning fun. Thanks BJ
