PASSION LEAVES TRACES
The BMW M Driving Experience is part of BMW M GmbH. As one of the first providers of driver training courses, it has been thrilling its customers with driving experiences in BMW Group vehicles since 1977. The BMW M Driving Experience currently offers training courses in more than 30 countries, all led by professional instructors and featuring vehicles from BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad.
Under the slogan “Passion leaves traces”, the BMW M Driving Experience plays an important role in improving driving safety on public roads, while at the same time conveying the joy of driving for which BMW is renowned. The BMW M Driving Experience fulfils its social responsibility with its driver safety courses on asphalt and snow, which give the customers all the basics they need to drive safely and competently.
Beyond the regular training courses on offer, the BMW M Driving Experience also places great importance on meeting individual customer desires. A team specialising in corporate events and incentives works closely with the customer to put together packages tailored specifically to the customer’s requirements.

We have put together some of the most frequently asked questions and key points regarding the BMW M Driving Experience. Should your question not be included, please simply get in touch with us.
Generally speaking, anyone who holds a valid driving licence and is fit to drive can benefit from our training courses. They are especially suitable for beginners, young motorists and those who do not drive frequently. 17-year-olds can take part in training courses for young drivers accompanied by the person whose name is entered in their driving licence. Here the same special conditions apply to the escort as to the young driver. In this case, we hope you appreciate that registrations must be made in writing. We will also be glad to provide you with telephone support.
We have to make certain preparations for you to be able to participate in a training course. For this reason we would ask you to send in your registration as early as possible. If you wish to book five days before a course starts, please contact us by telephone.
Travel to the training location is at your own expense and risk.
Booking double rooms
For training courses which include overnight accommodation, we will be pleased to book a double room for you rather than a single room. We would kindly ask you to pay the difference at the hotel.
Booking confirmation and full details of the training course
You will receive a booking confirmation not later than three working days after booking. Approx. 14 days before the event we will provide you with exact details of the program, the hotel and how to get there. Bookings placed at short notice will be confirmed by other means if necessary.
As the health and safety of our participants, employees and service providers is of utmost importance to us, we have taken several important steps to protect against Covid-19. Details can be found on our information pages.
Our online forms offer a fast, safe and convenient way of registering for a training course. All the data you enter are transmitted with SSL, an established data encryption method used successfully for the secure transmission of data in the Internet. The encryption process makes sure that the data you submit cannot be read or accessed by unauthorised third parties.
17-year-old with driving license
It is also possible to take part in our BMW Safety training courses with a provisional driving licence, which allows you to drive at the age of 17 when accompanied by an adult. However, in accordance with the conditions of §48a of the driving licence, you may only drive when accompanied by an approved person. This person must, among other things, fulfil the following prerequisites: to be in possession of a valid driving licence for at least five years and to be at least 30 years old. The accompanying person will take part in the training course as a fully-fledged participant, but will only pay the YOUNG reduced fee.
We are happy to issue vouchers for a Euro amount of your choosing. You can use these vouchers as part payment towards the cost of any training course that we offer. Vouchers can of course be transferred to other individuals who fulfil the requirements for BMW Driving Experience courses. The normal period of validity applies.
We only use professional instructors with appropriate qualifications. For organisational reasons, however, we cannot guarantee specific persons.
Unfortunately, we can only offer this service on request for special events or incentives. Those aged under 16 may only enter the training location if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
We will be pleased to provide you with automatic vehicles on request (provided the vehicle is available with automatic transmission). In the case of special conversions you can take part with your vehicle by prior agreement.
Alternatively, we offer Safety for People with Disabilities
The road safety benefits you gain from our BMW M Driving Experiences are open to every licence holder, whether you drive a BMW or not. We always welcome the opportunity to convince (not-yet-BMW) drivers of the value of our automobiles.
Rates and vehicles provided
Our rates include the relevant VAT. In the case of incentives we will be pleased to provide a detailed offer. For all training courses we provide BMW vehicles including fuel. Two participants share one vehicle.
For the exact cancellation fees in case of cancellation of a training place, please refer to our Terms & Conditions.
Note on cancellations due to Covid-19
Due to the fast-moving nature of the infection rate, it is possible that we will have to cancel training courses or you will wish to cancel your booking.
In the event of cancellation by you, cancellation charges will apply in accordance with the terms and conditions accepted by you at the time of booking.
We recommend that you insure yourself for such cases, for example by taking out travel cancellation insurance.
Cancelling accommodation arrangements
Generally, training courses which include overnight accommodation can be booked without accommodation. In this case we reimburse you with € 50.00. However, we recommend you to make use of the accommodation provided as it gives you the opportunity to engage in discussion with others.
Participation during pregnancy
Particular care is taken in the case of pregnant women, as liability for physical harm and damage to health cannot be excluded. It is not excluded in the General Terms and Conditions, however we do recommend refraining from participating if certain individual exercises (emergency braking, oversteer) may put the health of both mother and child at risk. Should the client still wish to participate, we require a medical clearance form. In terms of accident insurance, no restrictions are applied. The pregnancy also has no effect on the motor third party insurance taken out on the car. As such, there is nothing against participating from an insurance point of view.
Participation with private car
For insurance reasons, it is not permitted to use your own private car on our training courses. However, we would be happy to provide you with a proposal for an individual, personal training course. Third-party products are not permitted on our premises.
Depending on the course type, theory sessions can last between 40 and 120 minutes per course. In the theory sessions you learn about the fundamentals of driving physics and discuss the details of the course programme.
If you hold a valid driving licence and are fit to drive, we look forward to welcoming you to our training courses. Consult our course descriptions to find out whether previous attendance at other training courses is required for certain courses.
All soft drinks during meal breaks are included in our course prices. On our adventure trips, all drinks with meals are included. Please refer to individual course descriptions for details.
Generally, all participants and the vehicles provided by us have accident insurance through BMW. If you bring your own vehicle, this will be covered by your regular insurance as in road traffic. For details see our Terms and Conditions.
Whether or not concessions are offered after completion of one of our courses depends on your insurance. Please contact your insurance company for further details.
As with regular road traffic, our training courses take place in all weather conditions. However, in the event of extreme conditions we reserve the right to cancel in the interests of your safety.
Additional overnight stays
Unfortunately, we can only offer this service on request for special events or incentives. However, we will be glad to recommend a suitable hotel near the training location in question and put you in contact.
Spectators and escorts
Accompanying persons at driving events are only possible:
- after prior request and confirmation by the supervising account manager.
- after payment of the accompanying person fee.
This applies until further notice and can be adjusted at any time, e.g. if the Corona requirements change. Accompanying persons are not allowed to participate in the training.
No accompanying people are permitted at Snow & Ice Experiences.

Official data on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, power consumption and electric range figures were determined in accordance with the mandatory measurement procedure and comply with Regulation (EU) 715/2007 valid at the time of type approval. In case of a range, figures in the NEDC take into account differences in the selected wheel and tire size; figures in the WLTP take into account any optional equipment. WLTP values are used for assessing taxes and other vehicle-related charges that are (also) based on CO2 emissions, as well as for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies, if applicable. Where applicable, the NEDC values listed were calculated based on the new WLTP measurement procedure and then converted back to the NEDC measurement procedure for comparability reasons. For more information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures, see www.bmw.de/wltp.
For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at https://www.dat.de/angebote/verlagsprodukte/leitfaden-kraftstoffverbrauch.html.
