Q: Do I need a driving license?
With the exception of the YoungDrive, YoungDrive Plus and SuperRide experiences, all participants must have held a full driving license for over a year. You must be able to drive manual transmission vehicles unless taking part in the BMW M4 Master. If you only have the paper counterpart, please bring this and some identification with you on the day.
