Has Anyone Taken The Bondurant Driving Course?
Q: I'd like information on defensive driving schools.
I've heard of the Bondurant school at Sears Point
but wonder if there are any others in the Bay Area.
Has anyone taken the Bondurant driving course?
(I reaize there is a "racing" course as well
as the "defensive" course).
A:Unfortunately Bondurant is no longer located at Sears Point.He's moved to the Phoenix area.The Skip Barber school,which is comparable in most respects and well respected in the racing world, has taken its place.See any recent car-nut magazine (AutoWeek,Car and Driver,etc) for the phone number. I took Bondurant's street driving course 8 years ago and not only got a lot out of it, but enjoyed the experience thoroughly.Be prepared to work harder behind the wheel than you have ever worked before! I think some form of driver training at a real race track is a must for anyone who likes to drive fast.Do it,you will not regret it!
