Join for this year's exciting Longest Day driving school.  The Longest Day Driving School is one of our longest standing High Performance Driving Events with an excellent safety record and an experienced corps of experienced volunteer Instructors. You’ll learn a lot about car control, you’ll find yourself much more comfortable at speed than you thought possible – and you’ll have a lot of fun!

You’ll be paired up with an in-car instructor for the weekend, plus you’ll have a number of classroom sessions to learn more about the dynamics of high-performance driving and techniques. BMW CCA driving schools are among the best values and experiences for the money.


We will have an exciting opportunity for our LDDS participants this year.  Des Moines Valley Region SCCA will be hosting a Time Trials event at RPM during our driving school weekend.  

SCCA Time Trials (TT) are timed competitive events where the drivers vie for the fastest individual lap time in their class. Time Trials is not wheel-to-wheel racing.  For those who like the thought of being compared to others to see who can turn the fastest lap and want to add the pressure of competition to their track experience without the distraction or investment of racing wheel-to-wheel - SCCA Time Trials might be what you're looking for.   Cars are divided into classes by power/weight ratio and equipment to level the playing field.  Drivers must comply with passing rules in these events.

This event will be open to all makes and models (including convertibles – see the event rules via the link below for specifics about vehicles).  Drivers participating in the driving school are welcome to participate in the Time Trials on a day when they are not driving in LDDS. If you're interested in the DMVR Time Trials, you'll need to register for LDDS as one-day student,  and register separately with DMVR as a one-day driver in Time Trials.  Please visit http://msreg.com/DMVR-JuneTT for information and registration.  

We're expecting a huge turnout for all the usual "Longest Day" fun and entertainment.  This is your chance to attend one of the best driving schools available in the country. We strive for and have developed a very effective program to teach novice and experienced drivers the finer points of car control, all at a great facility. We have gathered the best enthusiast instructors from around the Midwest to help you have the time of your life!

So, whether you are an experienced driver or just want to significantly improve your basic on-road driving skills, whether you have a fully track-modified BMW M3, another brand of sports car, or a normal everyday economy car, we welcome all driving enthusiasts.  The Longest Day Driving School is the place to be this July. Open to all licensed drivers 18 years of age or older of all skill levels, and we love novice students.

The host hotel is the Country Inn & Suites in Council Bluffs, IA.  We have a block of rooms reserved for the event. Please call the hotel with the group code 'BMW' to get the special rate that we have available through May 30, 2018.
