This article is in partnership with BMW Performance Centers, however all opinions are my own.
There’s no denying my love of cars. Fast cars, shiny cars, pretty cars, bright cars…you name it. Anything on four wheels that can get me to and fro has my number.
Don’t get me wrong…while I do love and dream of “living in the fast lane” driving down the road, I also do know that there is a time and place for that to happen.
And luckily, my time happened this month when I got to visit the BMW Performance Center in California. Being able to ride and drive in style was amazing, and an experience that I’ll never forget. If you’ve always wanted to experience a driving experience that is truly unique, the BMW Performance Center needs to happen.
What driving classes are offered at the BMW Performance Center?
There are literally driving classes and options for everyone!
BMW Performance Driving School
Learn how to handle turns, react accordingly and sharpen up those driving skills that so many of us are lacking. Can you drive fast during this class? Of course…there’s always that option! You’ll be instructed by some of the best on safety in all aspects of your driving.
Mini Driving School
Who isn’t curious about driving a mini coop? And if you enroll for the Mini driving school, you can do just that! As with every class, you’ll be guided with the best instructors around and you’ll get first-hand information and driving tips to use in your everyday life.
BMW U.S. Rider Academy
The BMW Performance Center isn’t just for driving cars! Show the two-wheel vehicles some love, too! In this class you’ll be able to enjoy up to two full days of off-roading, dirt flinging fun – along with a boatload of safety tips and steering tips as well. This class isn’t for the faint of heart because there are some heart-thumping moments for sure!
Plus, in addition to these fun courses and classes, they also offer teen driving safety courses as well!
What types of cars can you drive at the BMW Performance Center?
Obviously, you’ll be driving around BMW cars, right?! And how awesome is that? Many of the driving classes have a wide variety of different styles and classes of BMW vehicles to drive and learn about, and as a student, you’ll have the option to drive them all if you want. Same concept with the motorcycles and dirt bikes as well. There is no shortage of vehicle and bike options, so don’t worry about that!
BMW Performance Center – Education and Fun For Everyone
What I loved most about visiting and experiencing the performance center was that everyone was fun for everyone involved. Girls, boys, men, women…you name it, the courses and classes are made with everyone in mind. I was blown away by the helpful instructors and the way that they guided and taught. I also considered myself a safe and conscious driver, but I’ll be the first to admit that I learned a ton of useful information that I know will help to improve my everyday driving skills every day moving forward.
If you are a mom looking for driving lessons for your teen, head to the BMW Performance Center. If you are a female wanted to feel that need for speed, head to the BMW Performance Center, and if you are male and are wanting to knock an off-road adventure off your bucket list…you guessed it…head to the BMW Performance Center. There is truly something offered for everyone to love!
