Everyone must read, understand and accept the WAIVER & RELEASE FORM prior to registering to participate in a Delaware Valley Chapter Driver School. The WAIVER & RELEASE FORM can be viewed above or downloaded from the Chapter Website. 


Please review the following information that is applicable to 2020 Delaware Valley Chapter Driver Schools:


  • Participation in Delaware Valley Chapter Driver Schools is limited to BMW CCA Members only.  Proof of BMW CCA Membership is required and may be verified.  Join BMW CCA on line <> or call the National Membership toll free number 1-800-878-9292. However,while we strongly encourage membership, non-BMW CCA members are welcome to participate for their FIRST event.  Membership is required for participation in all subsequent events.
  • Participants must be 18 yrs old or more and hold a valid Driver's License. This may be verified at registration at the track.
  • We recommend that you have your vehicle inspected by a qualified mechanic no more than 30 days prior to the date of the event.
  • You must present your completed Tech Form to the tech inspector prior to event registration at the track. (Do not mail your Tech to the registrar.)
  • Once your Tech Form has been approved by the tech inspector, you must present the form and your completed medical form to the registrar to obtain your registration packet.
  • We require equal passenger restraint (minimum 3 point).
  • This is a driver's education school and is not practice for any racing or speed contest. All participants are required to attend classroom sessions to learn vehicle dynamics and driving techniques. These sessions will continue throughout the day to help you understand the fine art of high speed driving. Failure to attend as required will result in loss of driving privileges.
  • Clothing - long sleeves & long pants are required,  we recommend cotton or natural fibers. SNELL 2010 OR NEWER HELMETS REQUIRED.
  • Helmet - The state of New Jersey requires a full-face helmet with face shield installed (you do not have to use the face shield in a closed-top car).  Open-face helmets are not permitted for this event. Snell 2010 or newer helmets required.
  • Seatbelts - The state of New Jersey requires that aftermarket belts be less than 2 years old (SFI approval) and less than 5 years old (FIA Approval).
  • Cars must be muffled.
  • After-market window tinting / rear & side glass - you must be able to see through the vehicle while standing 20 feet away.  Since it may be difficult to assess whether your aftermarket window tinting is allowed it is strongly recommended that if you have any doubts that you contact Tech Chairman, Dave Somma, prior to the event to have the tinting inspected and approved.
  • SUV's are not eligible.  If you're not sure if your vehicle qualifies, contact Tech Chairman, Dave Somma, prior to the event.
