The AMG® Driving Academy

July 16th, 2018 by

Spend a day at the track racing like the pros at the Mercedes-AMG® Driving Academy. One of the most exciting perks of AMG® ownership is the opportunity to attend a complimentary professional training program at one of four top raceways in the United States. It’s the chance to develop your driving skills while experiencing unbeatable driving thrills.

What to Expect

First, there’s a catered breakfast. After enjoying that deliciousness you’ll spend about 15% of the day learning safety procedures and proper racing techniques from professional instructors. All instructors are either past champions or current race winners, and are experienced in training novice and advanced drivers. And the rest of the day? You’ll be behind the wheel of an incredibly powerful, high-performing, top-of-the-line Mercedes-AMG®, racing around one of the country’s top racetracks. Sound good? Oh, there’s also a catered lunch.

The Programs

There are two Driving Academy program options available to new AMG® owners through the AMG® Purchase Reward Program. If you purchased a new Mercedes-AMG® in the last 12 months, then a complimentary seat at a PERFORMANCE Training Program has been reserved for you. If you prefer to attend an ADVANCED, PRO, or PRO+ Training Program, then through the Purchase Reward Program you may apply a credit of $1,895 toward any ADVANCED, PRO, or PRO+ Training if prerequisites are met. Regardless of which program you choose you must register for and attend the training program within one year after taking ownership of your new Mercedes-AMG®.


But (and it’s a good but) although new AMG® owners qualify for a complimentary AMG® Driving Academy program, you don’t have to be an AMG® owner to attend the AMG® Driving Academy. All you have to do to attend is select your preferred track, program level, training date, and input your contact and payment information.

It might be too early to think about holiday gifts, but maybe not? Because a day at one of North America’s top racetracks, driving one of the highest quality vehicles in the world, in the manner it was meant to be driven — untethered at full-speed — will quite easily earn the “best gift ever” status for the driving enthusiast in your life. Just a thought.
