The event is focused on those who want to improve their driving skills for the daily commute — including licensed Teen drivers — as well as beginner/novice student participants who are interested in starting to get engaged in track events.


Once again supported by Audi of Silver Spring and Craftsman Auto Care. This is an instructional event tailored to the needs of those with no previous driving experience beyond the “normal” daily commute and driver’s ed classes. The clinic provides a safe controlled environment to learn and practice advanced defensive driving techniques and car control through a combination of classroom and on-track exercises.

For anyone who wishes to enhance their driving knowledge and enjoy a safer road experience through improved skills, confidence and understanding, this event is designed for that purpose. It also provides the ideal start for those who may want to progress and participate in our two-day Drivers’ Education (DE) events. ABSOLUTELY NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE REQUIRED and there will be plenty of patient instructors to help guide you through the day.

We have developed an outstanding program that puts beginners and novices at ease and offers valuable instruction even for those who have recently started doing Drivers’ Education events. The morning is classroom and car-control exercises including a wet skidpad, braking, and slalom. The afternoon finishes off the event by applying what was learned in the morning with on-track driving.

General Rules and Regs:

Driver School Event Rules – This page contains information specific to our two-day Drivers’ Education events, but much of it applies to this event including licensing, membership, CUV/SUVs, convertibles, car-sharing, and refunds/cancellations.

NOTE: Model years of some SUV/CUVs such as the Audi Q3 and Q5 (unfortunately not the Q7) and others are now allowed. Convertibles are permitted IF approved, aftermarket safety equipment is installed. Check for models and rules in the Driver School Event Rules.

No special tires or brakes or other car modifications are required. Learn more about your car just as it sits! Simply make sure the existing tires and brakes and other mechanical equipment are in good condition. You should have had your brake fluid replaced in the last 2 years.

The event does not require a tech inspection but we will perform an inspection at the track on the morning of the event.
