North Star BMW Spring Driving School

Dakota County Technical College

About this event

We have the track at Dakota County Technical College reserved for Sunday, April 28, 2024. Come join us at this non-competitive event and experience the attributes of car control at and beyond the limit in a safe and controlled environment. During this event, drivers will experience advanced braking exercises, weight transfer (slalom) maneuvers, and cornering, all of which build skills behind the wheel. The emphasis is on skills and knowledge to make better drivers on the course and the road.

This adrenaline-filled driving program is available to BMW CCA members for $150 and Non-BMW CCA members for $210, a price well below that of similar professional schools. 

All makes and models are welcome. Recently, in addition to BMW, we had Volkswagen GTI, Subaru, Mazda, Porsche, Tesla, Mini Cooper, and Chevy all join us at the track!

Students and instructors will be together in the student’s car, with the instructor providing real-time feedback while on the track. Students will alternate between sessions in the classroom and sessions on the track.

No previous experience is needed; we only ask that your car is in good condition and you be ready to have fun! Lunch will be provided for all attendees.

Starts: 8:00AM-8:30AM Registration
Ends: 5:00 PM
Cost: $150 (BMW CCA Members), $210 (Non-BMW CCA Members)
