Overview

The Aston Martin Performance Driving Course focuses on two things – helping you understand the capability of your car in a controlled environment and to make you a safer, better driver, but above all it is about having fun whilst doing it!

Not only will the day be memorable, it will also help to equip you with the skill sets to use and indeed improve the driving and enjoyment of your Aston Martin.

A Challenging Environment

The Performance Driving Course takes place at Millbrook Proving Ground, UK. The proving ground provides the perfect location for our drivers to learn and develop their driving skills in a challenging yet safe environment.

During the day, the blend of theory and hands-on practice will allow you to drive in a number of different environments, where you will experience safe high speed driving, car dynamics on handling and hill routes, and straight line power delivery and braking on the straights.

Personalised for You

All of our courses are designed to be one-to-one in nature. Our highly experienced, professional instructors have extensive knowledge of track and road driving and will be with you throughout the duration of the day.

The course starts at 9.30 at Aston Martin, Newport Pagnell, where you will meet your instructor for the day. From here your instructor will drive you over to Millbrook Proving Ground, Bedford, a short 20 minute drive. The day will finish at approximately 16.00.
