Overview


Drive with the best.

Practice and experience are the foundations of superior driving.

This is your chance to combine education with exhilaration, and learn from Australia’s best driving instructors. Master sudden manoeuvres, learn to make the right decision in a split second and be tested in emergency situations.

Under the personal guidance of our professional driving instructors, you will take part in a number of dynamic handling exercises that have been specifically developed to test you and showcase the technology and handling capabilities of the Mercedes-Benz range, including autonomous driving.

Experience how you can optimally evade suddenly appearing obstacles, how to respond to oversteer and understeer. Practice emergency braking and train in various demanding driving conditions including advanced car control on a skid pan.

Young drivers will learn together, focusing on the attitudes and behaviours that affect young drivers when they take to the road. As most accidents start long before the actual collision, under the focused guidance of our professional driving instructors, you will learn to understand, recognize, avoid risks and handle critical driving situations. This drive day will raise your awareness of typical dangerous situations and ensure you develop a new understanding of the vehicle and your skills, keeping you safer on the road.

Finally, you’ll experience an unforgettable hot lap in a Mercedes-AMG.
