Generally the one-day courses last around eight hours (approx. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Participants arrive on the evening before in the case of Sporty Driving training. Everyone has dinner together at the start. The Motor Racing Licence training and the Professional Safety training also include arrival on the evening before and run over two training days from approx. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on day 1 and from approx. 8.30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on day 2.
Naturally we are also prepared to accept participation in courses run by other providers. We insist on previous training to ensure that all participants roughly have the same basic skills.
When designing the Volkswagen Driving Experience Individual Training our aim is to integrate your requirements into the programme wherever possible. Important aspects for our planning include the required training format, the planned number of participants, the period, the event venue and the budget.
If the external costs (flight, hotel, catering, track hire, etc.) incurred thus far are not covered by the cancellation fees, we will also bill these and submit the relevant receipts.
You have various options for registering for a course or a tour run by Volkswagen Driving Experience. When using our booking form, you can select your required course and book one or more places. A member of our service office will then contact you.
The entire course is completed with vehicles we provide. You can therefore look forward to a state-of-the-art Volkswagen which is perfectly tailored to the course content. Insurance constraints unfortunately mean you cannot take part in your own vehicle.
The fuel costs are included in the price.

In addition to a valid class B driving licence, you must refrain from drinking alcohol throughout the entire course. Individuals under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol during the event will be excluded from the cours.
Personal data is information that can be assigned to you personally. This includes for example your name, your address, your telephone number and your e-mail address. It does not include information that cannot be directly linked with you. If you use one of our personalised services, order a product or would like to take out a subscription, we will ask you for certain personal details.
Personalised services are services that require you to register with your personal details. The aim of these services is to make our online content efficient and convenient for you by tailoring it to your personal interests. Your login and registration data can be viewed and amended at any time by clicking the "Edit profile" link on every Volkswagen portal on which you have registered using your personal details. You may of course delete your data at any time. However, if you delete essential details you will no longer be able to use the personalised service concerned.
The personal data collected on the websites of Volkswagen AG will only be processed and used for contract execution and to handle your enquiries, unless you have consented to another type of use. Moreover, your data will only be processed and used for promotional and market research purposes and to design needs-oriented electronic services from Volkswagen AG if you have given us your prior consent. The same applies to the processing and use of your data in order to send personally tailored promotional material.
We take promotional material and market research to mean
Within the scope of our personalised services and if you have given your prior consent, we compile personally tailored promotional material and construct an individual user profile. In order to do so, the registration details obtained through your use of our Volkswagen portals and data stored on the usage of our services (frequency, duration and content) are combined in one database. The registration and usage data is then automatically evaluated with the aim of matching the subsequent user profile with our products and services. Once this has been completed, we can tailor our promotional material specifically to you. As a result, you do not receive any unnecessary information and your data allows us to address you in a more targeted way. The user profile enables us to send you personally tailored promotional material by e-mail if, for example, you have saved your dream car in the car park section of the Consultation and Purchase portal. The user profile will of course only be based on your activities within the Volkswagen portals.
A cookie is a small data file that can be stored on your hard drive. This data file is created by the web server you have connected to via your web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator) and is then sent to you. The cookie enables you to be recognised the next time you visit the website, so you do not have to re-enter data you have already provided.

You naturally have the right to know, at any time, what personal data we hold about you. Please contact the Data Protection Officer at Volkswagen AG in this regard.
You have the right at any time to partly or fully withdraw your consent to the use of your data with effect at a time in the future. In this case we will delete the relevant data. However, in exceptional circumstances, deleting data may contravene legal requirements, particularly with regard to data used for invoicing and accounting purposes.
In the area for Volkswagen's personalised services you can change your user account via the "Edit profile" link or deregister via the "Delete profile data" function, i.e. your personal information is completely removed.
Your data will generally not be transmitted to third parties. Information will be transmitted to the companies in the Volkswagen Group or others named in the declaration of consent only with your approval and only if such recipients have assured Volkswagen AG of their compliance with valid data protection regulations.
In order to process your enquiries and so that you can use our services, we work with service providers. These service providers have a contractual obligation to comply with data protection laws and are not deemed to be third parties in data protection terms.
Any communication in online forums and chat rooms that you have accessed via Volkswagen AG's websites brings you into the public domain. Consequently, the data protection declaration does not extend to this kind of transmission of your personal data. Please bear this in mind when using these options.
Volkswagen AG gives you the opportunity to use text messaging and e-mail services in the Volkswagen portals while maintaining telecommunications secrecy.
These data protection declarations do not apply to the websites of other providers that can be accessed via links on the Volkswagen websites. Please therefore observe the respective provisions of other providers with regard to data protection.
Volkswagen AG will save your connection data (such as your IP address etc.) when you visit the websites. We only process or use this data beyond termination of the connection insofar as it is required to establish additional connections, possibly for invoicing purposes, to locate faults in telecommunications systems or trace the misuse of our telecommunications services. Otherwise, we delete your connection data no later than the day following the termination of the connection.
This website uses Matomo (formerly Piwik) to analyze user behaviour. For that purpose cookies are stored on your computer. Personal data is not collected so that no conclusions can be drawn about your person.
As protecting minors is very important to Volkswagen AG, we do not send any promotional material to minors, provided their age is known to us.
The rapid development of the internet makes it necessary for us to adapt our data protection declaration from time to time. We will notify you accordingly if any such changes affect the respective content of your declaration of consent. Please refer to the current version of our data protection declaration in this respect.
