NJ/NY Driver School/Inst. Training School SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! The NJ/NY season opens April 12-14 ITS & Driver School (All 3 days at Thunderbolt). A Friday track day for Advanced Solo students (pre-approval required) and for Instructors at Thunderbolt. Our special Introduction to the Track for new students on Sunday. Driver School: The regular driver school portion of the event will be on the weekend of April 13-14. No need to take 2 days off work to start the season. You have no excuse not to come on out, knock the rust off your driving and reinforce all the good things you learned last year. The Driver School portion of the event will have 3 student run groups so there will be ample track space for everyone. Instructor Training School: Participation in the Instructor Training School is by invitation only. The Instructor Training School is for advanced students who have shown a high level of driving skill, an understanding of driving dynamics and a desire to teach. The program is a rigorous two days of on-track and classroom instruction and role-playing. If you have been invited, you can register online here. Please be sure to use the ITS Candidate registration radio button so you are properly enrolled. Your acceptance will be subject to approval by the ITS Coordinator and Chief Instructor. If you believe that you are a candidate for the ITS and have not been invited, please e-mail the Chief Instructor. ITS candidates should plan to bring the car they usually use for driver schools as a portion of the evaluation process requires candidates to drive their vehicle. Friday track day: On Friday there will be 6 hours of track time (a revised format is in development) for instructors who wish to get in some extra track time and for approved advanced Solo students. Solo students will only see the option for this registration if they are pre-approved (contact the Registrar). Instructors who are only driving on Friday and not instructing for the weekend must pay the student fee. Introduction to the Track (Sunday only): On Sunday we will be holding a special school for students who have never been to the track. This event was offered for the first-time in 2009 and was a run-away success. We have designed this event to encourage students who are new to the track to try out our Driver School program. The Driver School Committee understands that there are hurdles for “first-time” students to overcome to try one of our events and so we have designed this school to reduce those hurdles as much as possible. First, the event is being held locally. Hotel rooms in the Millville area are relatively low priced and, for students who live in southern NJ/PA, you could even get up early and drive down the morning of the event. Second, we are offering reduced registration fees to our First Timers so that you pay just $325 for Sunday-only. You will not find a better rate to get out on the track with personalized instruction anywhere. Third, this event will have a dedicated run group solely for First Time students. This arrangement will allow instruction on the track and in the classroom to be specific for First Time students and will provide a smaller run group for First Time students allowing better spacing on the track. Fourth, for our First Time students, we may also be able to loan you a helmet for the event (please see Promotions). Fifth and finally, each First Time student will be assigned a Mentor who will contact you prior to the event and be a point of contact to answer any questions you might have before you arrive. Every year we have held this event, each new student leaves with a huge smile on their face. Pursuant to NJ health guidelines, it is strongly reccomended that everyone is current for their Covid vaccinations.

About Us

The New Jersey Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America was established in 1970 and today has of over 3,000 members in New Jersey and the surrounding area. Our purpose is to provide services and organize events that benefit and interest our members. Our goal is to help you get the most enjoyment and satisfaction from BMW ownership, and to create a community where members can share their enthusiasm for these terrific cars.

The Chapter holds a monthly meeting for members that often consist of technical presentations and demonstrations. Our social events are well know as fun, family affairs and offer a great opportunity for members and their families to meet and mingle.

Since we are a car club, we place a lot of emphasis on the safe, proper operation of the automobile. We offer several “behind-the-wheel” activities in a learning environment that are designed to improve your driving skills. These consist of our Street Survival program for teens, Autocross events and our highly regarded Driver School program.

Since this is a BMW car club, we also organize competitive events that explore the limits of these awesome cars. We hold regular timed Autocross events and sponsor several Club Races throughout the season.

If you, like most car nuts, can’t resist modifying, improving and maintaining your prized BMW’s, the club has a terrific collection of resources for you. The scope and depth of knowledge among our membership almost guarantees that you’ll find an expert who will gladly offer advice on any detail, and the club maintains a technical library and toolbox for your use.

This club exists for you, the membership, and is run by active members. What we do as a club is determined by you so, if you would like to see other activities, or additional services offered, please bring these suggestions forward.

So, join the club, come to a meeting, and meet your fellow members. We are sure that you will make new friends who share your interests – and passion – for these great cars!
