|Welcome to the BMW Advanced Driving School|
The fun and thrill of driving in a performance situation does not mean that you have to be sitting behind the wheel of an open-wheel race car. The BMW Club of Canada (BMWCC) offers many opportunities to experience the thrill of driving your own vehicle (BMW or otherwise) at or near the limit under safe and controlled conditions.
The purpose of the BWMCC Advanced Driving Schools is to instruct students in the art of advanced driving technique. Whether you have attended our schools in the past, or attended other similar schools, there is always more to learn and experience. Through our Advanced Driving Schools, you can expect to polish skills through excellent one-to-one in-car instruction on a closed road track. In-car instruction is supplemented by classroom sessions, and specific skills are further reinforced by exercises on the skid pad.
This is not a racing school. The "race track" is used because it simulates a series of corners just as you might encounter in typical countryside driving, but with the added benefit that it is a one-way street with controlled access. This allows for practicing advanced driving techniques without the worry of encountering oncoming vehicles driven by untrained drivers. We even have marshals on most corners to indicate with flags whether the road ahead is clear.
The bottom line is this: BMWCC Advanced Driving Schools provide a unique opportunity to enhance your driving technique, keep up to date with current technical information, and build friendships with other like-minded enthusiasts. We hope to see you out at one soon.
