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 before 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.
