The 2023 Driver Training and Come and Try days are listed below. We're also planning to hold our first driver training and come and try day at DECA Shepparton in 2023. We'll provide more information on this as soon as we have it.
A key focus of the BMW Drivers Club Melbourne is Driver Training – at all levels of experience.
We provide training for all drivers, the younger ones in particular, in the safe use of a motor vehicle at all times, whether on the road or on the track. This is as much about skills as it is about attitude and awareness behind the wheel. Our Driver Training program also addresses the skills required to participate in motorkhanas and sprint days on racing circuits, all the way through to competitive racing.
At BMWDCM we don't encourage hoon behaviour or speeding on the roads. With our affordable prices, we're much cheaper than a speeding ticket and a whole lot more fun!
Our Driver Training events are the perfect place for you to experience your vehicle's limits in a safe environment. We welcome all vehicles – new, old, high or low powered, you also don't need to own a BMW to attend.
All of our events are run by a number of senior CAMS/Motorsport Australia Officials, who are all members of our club, and who all have experience in instructing. We must stress that our Driver Training events are not timed and they are NOT racing days.
Have in mind what you'd like to get out of the day before you come and when you meet your instructor, let them know. Whether it be for a bit of fun or even to learn how to drive a manual, our team will work with you one on one to ensure that you get what you want out of the day. Our instructors will work with you to identify any weaknesses in your driving and reinstate good driving habits.
Our driver training days aren't just for the inexperienced – we encourage all drivers to come along and have a fun day on track without the pressure of any competition. You may even learn a thing or two about your own driving or your car.
We offer two levels of Driver Training:
In some events, freedoms are allowed for wholly unmodified cars.
If you're unsure about any of the above and need some guidance, phone us on (03) 5979 1599 prior to the event and we'll walk you through it.
Keep an eye on the Events page for the next Driver Training event. We look forward to seeing you there!
