Age restrictions

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.

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.

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.

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.

Insurance bonus

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.

Non-BMW drivers

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.

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.

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.
