Stories about schools
BRAKE was initiated by Police Sergeant Rob Duncan in 2006.
All too often, Rob had been called to fatal road crashes involving teenage drivers. Part of his job was to tell distraught parents their child has just died in a car crash.
Rob believed there had to be a better way to train young drivers. He set about a national and international search for best-practice in young driver training.
The result is the acclaimed BRAKE Driver Awareness course. BRAKE uses evidence-based teaching techniques in its' highly successful eight part training course for year 11 students.
Sergeant Duncan received the Australian Commendation for Brave Conduct, the Royal Humane Society of Australasia Silver Medal for Bravery and the Commissioner's Commendation for Bravery in 2006.
