About this event


The Annual NJ/DelVal/NY season opening April 16-17-18 Driver School.

Driver School: The regular driver school portion of the event will be on the weekend of April 17-18. No need to take 2 days off work to start the season. You have no excuse not to come on out, knock the rust off your driving and reinforce all the good things you learned last year. The Driver School portion of the event will have 3 student run groups so there will be ample track space for everyone. Note: Due to Covid restrictions from BMW CCA national office, this will be a lead-follow format. We are only able to accept students with previous on-track experience.

Friday track day: On Friday there will be 8 hours of track time for instructors who wish to get in some extra track time and for approved advanced Solo students. Solo students will only see the option for this registration if they are pre-approved (contact the Registrar). Instructors who are only driving on Friday and not instructing for the weekend must pay the student fee.

Introduction to the Track (Sunday only): Unfortunately, we are unable to hold this run group for this event because in-car instruction is not allowed per BMW CCA national office.


Registration Fees:
Sat-Sun Driver School students: $575 if registered by March 24; $599 if registered after March 24. 

Friday Solo Students: $350
Friday Instructors (instructing Sat-Sun): $250
