Here you will find a summary of the most frequently asked questions on the subject of BMW Driving Experience.
- Additional overnight stays
Unfortunately, we can only offer this service on request for special events or incentives. However, we will be glad to recommend a suitable hotel near the training location in question and put you in contact.
- 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 on +49 (0) 18 05-32 47 37 (0.14 €/min on German landline, maximum 0.42 €/min on German mobile phone). Monday – Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.
- 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.
Please refer to our General Terms and Conditions for details of exact cancellation fees.
- 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.
Unfortunately, we can only offer this service on request for special events or incentives. Those aged under 16 may only enter the training location if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The increase in road traffic safety which you acquire on a BMW Driving Experience course is something which all licence-holders can benefit from, no matter whether they drive a BMW or any other brand.

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.
