About the Owner

        Tim Garrow is a 10 year veteran police officer dedicated to traffic safety. In 1998, Garrow was honored at the Heroes Banquet by Governor Dean and the Govenor's Highway Safety Program Coordinator, Jeanni Johnson, for the DUI and traffic safety work he did in the Northeast Kingdom. Garrow has seen the devastation, including multiple fatalities due to driver error. As a result, Garrow was compelled to construct a driver education program that met all of Vermont's requirements, but placed a special emphasis on crash avoidance. Garrow then acquired state licensure from both the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles and the Vermont Department of Education and drew upon his experience, training, and education to construct the curriculum now used by Precision Driver Training School. In 2005 his wife, Janet , also became a state certified instructor.
