Wouldn’t we all love to be better drivers? I know, some of us are already fantastic behind the wheel, but what if you could be better? Or what if you just want to brush up on some skills or start learning from the beginning? Many big car companies are offering classes or courses to their customers, which helps them with their driving prowess as well as beefs up their safety skills.  Ask Patty wants to invite you to take a tour of some of these offerings.

Vwautostadt_1Volkswagen AutoStadt Driving Courses: This course offers you a personal trainer that sticks with you throughout the course. You learn car control, all-terrain driving, obstacle course maneuvering, and fuel economy tricks. You get to do all this inside a Touareg or any Audi Quattro offering.

Mini_1MINI Driver’s Training: This course takes place during one day of training. Anyone can take the class, even if you don’t have a MINI. And honestly, who wouldn’t want to hightail it around a road course in a little Cooper? We’ll take the red one!

BMW Performance Driving Schools:  Like it’s cousin, the MINI, BMW bounces out a class of its own. This course accommodates drivers of all levels so don’t be intimidated by the large name behind it. The kind folks at BMW will teach you basic driving confidence or extreme performance driving. BMW included!
 

Maruti_1Maruti Driving School: This school was started by Maruti Udvog (very large Indian car manufacturer) and is a basic class for those interested in typical road skills. Maruti’s school boasts state-of-the-art facilities with driving simulators (you don’t even have to get in a real car!). And get this part! Maruti employs female instructors to help women drivers, who make up 50-65% of the students at the school! Ask Patty gives a huge high five to this school!

Landroverexperience More courses are available the ones we covered here. If the ones above don’t tickle your lead foot, then try one of these: Audi Driving Experience, Mercedes Driving School, Porsche Driving Experience, Land Rover Driving School, Master Maserati North America Driving School, and the Ferrari North America Driving School.

Do you like motorcycles instead? Knock yourself out at Rider’s Edge, the Harley-Davidson Academy of Motorcycling, which has three differently skilled classes to choose from.
