Callie races around a driving track as her German BMW driving coach calls out advice and encouragement over the radio.

This is what it’s like to do the Winterline program.

In the third trimester of our gap year program, our students travel to Europe and the United States, where they learn about systems theory and societies from a wider perspective. But they also get a chance to learn how to race BMWs on a closed track.

Defensive driving is as much about anticipating occurrences in your environment as it is about being able to out-maneuver your obstacles.

Many people learn defensive driving at some point in there lives. But Callie learned this skill from a German driving coach at the BMW Driving School outside Frankfurt.
