Looking to hone your driving skills? The BMW Driver Training programme is back in town, again happening at the Sepang International Circuit. As usual, the course is split into two tiers – Advanced Driver Training lays down the basics of driving safety and securely, while Intensive Driver Training transitions higher-skilled drivers towards the art of performance driving.

The single-day Advanced Driver Training course takes place this weekend on June 10 to 12, from 9:30 am to 7:00 pm, while the Intensive Driver Training will be held over the course of two days on June 18 and 19 and June 25 and 26, from 8:30 am to 6:15 pm.

Lessons taught at the Advanced Driver Training are pretty straightforward – you’ll start with a 60-minute theory class covering the basic tenets of car safety and control, then learn how to adjust the seats and steering wheel to your optimum seating position – an often overlooked but essential part of driving safely.

Then comes the fun part – you will take part in a series of challenges, including emergency and targeted braking exercises combined with evasive steering manoeuvres, as well as understeer and oversteer control. At the end of the day, the lessons learnt will be put to the test as you race the clock, gymkhana-style, on a slalom course.

The more taxing Intensive Driver Training course will see participants learning basic professional driving skills, such as driving lines and braking, apex and acceleration points. You’ll also learn how to trail brake while cornering, take part in double lane change exercises, master the infamous J-turn and try your hand at oversteer and half-circle drifts.

As on the Advanced course, the Intensive programme will also end on a time attack run, but this time across a series of corners on the Sepang circuit itself. Do note that to participate in the Intensive Driver Training programme, you will have to have completed the Advanced Driver Training course first.
