Will I wear out my tires and brakes at the school?

Wear on these parts is related to the stresses they encounter. When you are first learning, you cannot use all of the potential cornering or braking your vehicle has to offer. As your skills improve, you will corner and brake at higher and higher levels, consequently putting more stress on your tires and brake pads. However, you will probably not generate accelerated wear until after you have attended a number of schools. For your first few schools, you will not wear your tires or brake pads appreciably.

If your car is properly maintained, the school will not add any appreciable additional wear or shorten its life.  Proper maintenance, however, is important.  That is why we require a pre-event technical inspection -- to ensure that your car is in perfect working order, so that it will suffer no adverse effects from the school.
