ABOUT THE BUCKEYE DRIVING SCHOOLS
This is the 38th year for Buckeye Chapter Driver's Schools.
We strongly encourage you to give one a try if you haven't yet. You'll be amazed at how much you learn, and how much fun you have doing it!
Driver's Schools are a great place to see just what you and your Bimmer (or other car) can do. The schools allow performance driving techniques from experienced instructors under the safest conditions possible. They are not races, but rather, a controlled environment in which you can push the envelope at your own pace. You'll learn how your car handles at high speed and under extreme cornering. Once you get a taste of how your car behaves under the intensity of track driving, you will be much better prepared for those highway "intense moments". Students are grouped into several categories depending on skills and previous school experience for both in-class and on-track sessions. This is a great investment for any driver, male or female, young or "experienced". We've yet to hear of anyone leaving a Driver's Schools without feeling they were a better driver.
Have a safe and enjoyable driving season! Thank you for your interest.

NOTE TO INSTRUCTOR APPLICANTS
BMW CCA Buckeye Chapter takes driving resumes with references for those interested in instructing. Please send resumes and references to Steve Schardt (click the Contacts link at the bottom of the page).
If you have instructed for other regions/clubs but not BMW CCA Buckeye Chapter, we prefer that you do your first BMW CCA Buckeye Chapter event as a student. This becomes a requirement if you have never been to Mid-Ohio. We expect our instructors to be experienced with Mid-Ohio in all weather conditions.
