Cancellation Fees

Fees may be refunded or credited toward a future GVC Driving School if cancelation occurs before the registration deadline
Fee non-refundable after deadline unless vacated slot can be filled.

Convertibles

We do not accept convertibles at our Driving Schools. The only exceptions to this rule are cars such as a 'Spec Miata' (roll cage and bolted / welded on hard top), and cars such as a 911 Targa. If you have questions, email the Student Registrar befor you apply.

Sharing Cars

We recommend that you don't try to share a car. It hard on the car and students will loose track time as they switch from one student / instructor to another. (We run seamless turnaround times between run groups to maximize your track time). In no case will two Novice students be allowed to share a car.

"Bring a Friend" Offer

Any registered participant who brings a “new to GVC” student to the school will be refunded the fee for themselves and one guest at the Jack Daniels Club banquet. Both people must sign up and pay for the school and banquet. After you both have participated in the school, email our Chapter's Treasurer, and the fee for the banquets will be refunded.
