What kinds of courses are available?
We offer 6 basic courses. There is a 2-hour-long course, a half-day-long course and 4 all-day-long courses. You can find a short summary about the courses on the below link...
What kinds of tracks are available?
We offer 4 different driving technique tracks: the ABS and Slalom Track - the Puncture Simulator Track - the Circle Track - and a Slope-Hill Track. Depending on the length of the courses you can practice on all the tracks. All of these tracks are covered with artificial resin which can be used wet as well. This surface is perfect for practising what to do in crisis. The tracks have water walls, asphaltic parts and a safety zone as well.
What does a course contain?
At the beginning of a course there is a short theoretical training. Depending on the length of the course it takes 20 to 60 minutes. After this short training there is a basic practical training: braking and slalom tasks on normal and resin surface as well. The basic training is followed by the special tasks on the particular tracks. After the lunch break, the customers, signed up for the whole day, have a 30-minutes-long theoretical training followed by more practical trainings on different tracks.
What is the group size?
On our driving technique courses the average size of a group is 10 people. The minimum is 5-6 participants. In case of the all-day-long courses or premium courses the size of the group is maximum 5 people.
Is the trainer sitting next to me in the car?
The trainers are sitting in a control room or standing on the side of the track. Every group has an instructor. Participants receive a radio and this way they can follow the instructions. During breaks or at the end of the course there is a chance to discuss the observations and the evaluation by all means.
Is the course held in case of bad weather?
Yes, it is. Even if it rains or snows.
Can customers visit the Hungaroring during courses?
Yes, but just in case of a Hungaroring premium course. Otherwise there is no chance for visiting Hungaroring since there are several events held there through the year.

Do I need to drive my own car on the courses? If I have more cars, which one should I choose?
We recommend you to drive your own car because you need to know the limits of your own car. If you have more than one car, drive the one you use most often. If you don’t have your own car, you can rent one at the Driving Centre.
Is it a problem if I have an automatic car?
We do not specify the age or the technical equipment of the car. Every car behaves differently and this can be useful for the whole group.
Can I get hurt? Can my car get damaged?
Since the speed is low during the training (30-40 km/h) and the tracks are safe, it is almost impossible to have an accident. It is really important though to follow the instructions of the trainer. If anything happens, the fee of the course includes the insurance.
Can I bring a companion? Does it cost extra money? Can my companion sit next me in the car?
You can bring a companion and you don’t need to pay extra for him/her. However the companion is not allowed to sit into the car. They can observe the training from the building or by the roadside.
Can I use my camera?
Yes, you can but just at the Driving Centre. You are not allowed to use you camera on the Hungaroring area.

No, we do not allow them to participate.
Which training do you recommend in case of a fresh driving license?
All of our courses are really useful for experienced and less experienced drivers as well. However the all-day-long training can be exhausted for a less experienced driver. We recommend them the half-day-long basic course but they can join the all-day-long course as well.
Do I need to attend the shorter courses before the all-day-long course?
