All classes require the use of a BMW Performance Center vehicle.
No. We keep only the most recent model-year vehicles on hand for classes.
You must be at least 15 years old with a valid driver’s permit for Teen School. For all other schools, you must be 18 years old and must present a valid driver’s license upon check-in. No prior performance-driving experience is required except for Advanced M School, which requires previous participation in regular M School or an equivalent performance driving school.
The track will have sections set up with cones; however, most events take place on road courses.
No. However, when you pick up your vehicle, we will offer track time in a vehicle similar to the one you’ve ordered.
Since each experience is custom-tailored to your specific needs, we ask that you call the Performance Center at 888-345-4269 to book any special event.
Class sizes average from 12 to 15 people. If you would like to book a specific date that is already full, please contact the Performance Center at 888-345-4269 to have your name put on a waiting list.
Teen, Driver’s and M School all start at 8:00 am and go until about 4:30 pm. Morning classroom sessions average 45 minutes, and there is a half-hour lunch break around 12:30 pm. Before each exercise, an instructor will go over the objective with you for 10 to 15 minutes. Otherwise, you are behind the wheel of an Ultimate Driving Machine®.
Every event we have scheduled is held rain or shine, so bring clothing appropriate for the day’s activities. If severe weather does cause us to close, we will reschedule your event for a later date.
Dress comfortably. T-shirts, jeans and shorts are allowed. Most important, please have comfortable, closed shoes for driving (thin soles are best).
Cancellations for a full refund must be made within 120 days of your payment date. Cancellations made after the 120 days of payment will receive a credit to use toward another date or event. There will be no rescheduling if the cancellation is made within 14 days of your school or event.
Complimentary for you and one guest. Additional guests seats are $299 each.
Drivers do not leave with an SCCA license in hand.

Race License School will satisfy the driving and racing procedure portions of the licensing requirements. Drivers will still need to fill out an application with the SCCA. More more information, please visit the SCCA website.

We will provide an SCCA license application packet upon arrival, but we ask that you please download your own application prior to arrival to familiarize yourself with all of the SCCA’s requirements.
We are authorized to provide recommendation for a FULL COMPETITION license, but we reserve the right to only offer a NOVICE license if we deem the participant is not yet ready for full competition.

Upon completion of the course, participants will receive a dated Certificate of Completion and have one year to apply for their SCCA license.
Classes usually begin around 8AM. Please reference your confirmation email for specific starting times, or call 888-345-4269.

Please note the Summer hours for our Performance Center West location only. Classes in Thermal will begin at 6AM, June 1st through September 30th. Please check your confirmation email for details.
