Volkswagen
Driving Experience.

The Volkswagen Driving Experience offers you a unique opportunity to develop your driving skills in a safe yet exhilarating track environment.

The 2017 program kicked off at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit in August. Our drivers enjoyed the newest range of Volkswagen vehicles, while learning new skills such as cornering, slalom and skid control. The sold-out sessions finished on a high with lapping in the new Golf R and new Golf GTI.

Our next stop is Perth in November. Book your tickets now!

Make sure to register your interest for Sydney and Brisbane to be updated on sale dates.
