Street Survival Schools
Many of our clubs hold skills improvement sessions, geared towards every day street driving, summer and winter. A wide variety of these events occur across the country, are typically held in large parking lots close to the urban centre, and provide a maximum amount of driving and practice for skills improvements.
Typical programs include
emergency braking (ABS and non-ABS)
emergency lane changes
weight transfer dynamics (slalom, offset slalom)
vision, hand position, seating position
decreasing radius turns
braking while turning
lots of hands-on practice in your car
classroom sessions to evaluate and discuss the techniques
In conjunction with the BMW Car Club of America Charitable Foundation, a number of chapters are also providing the Street Survival curriculum specifically put in place to help newer or inexperienced drivers learn life saving skills in a safe environment.
Check with your local chapter to find out when the next event is in your area!
