MEMBERSHIP IN A BMW CLUB IS MANDATORY and at an additional cost (~$60). If you are not a BMW Club member, please visit your local BMW Club web site to obtain a membership (e.g., Northern Alberta BMW Club www.nabmwclub.ca, Southern Alberta BMW Club www.sabmwclub.com, etc.).

It is MANDATORY THAT EVERY REGISTRANT HAVE A VALID DRIVER'S LICENCE.

It is MANDATORY THAT EVERY VEHICLE IS LICENSED AND INSURED.

VEHICLE POLICY: Important: If in doubt, please contact the Registrar before registering. Cars of all makes are allowed. Convertibles, cabriolets and open-top cars by any other name are permitted provided that they are equipped with appropriate rollover protection located behind both driver and passenger. Appropriate types of rollover protection include fixed roll bars, fixed roll cages and roll bars that deploy automatically in the event of a collision or rollover. Only BMW and Porsche SUVs/SAVs are allowed. Other SUVs/SAVs are not allowed. For the Winter School, some exceptions may be made but the vehicle must be approved before registration by contacting the Registrar. Trucks are not allowed. Important: If in doubt, please contact the Registrar before registering.

TECHNICAL INSPECTION and BRAKE FLUID FLUSH: A technical inspection and brake fluid flush are mandatory for all our schools except for the Winter School. The inspection form can be found at www.nabmwclub.ca/admin/inspect.pdf. You will be exploring the limits of your vehicle and putting them under greater stress compared to normal driving conditions. You should expect accelerated brake and tire wear. We require that a licensed mechanic verify that each vehicle is in suitable mechanical condition. The inspection will focus on suspension, engine and drive train, body and electrical, brakes, etc. If you arrive at the school without a COMPLETED and SIGNED inspection form and proof of a RECENT brake fluid flush (not older than six months), you will be turned away without a refund.

CANCELLATION POLICY: AADS school fees are based on a full complement of students to adequately cover event costs. From the first day of registration until 14 days prior to the date of the school, you will be allowed to withdraw your registration for a full refund, less a $50 cancellation charge. If you withdraw your registration less than 14 days prior to the date of the school, you will be refunded only 50% of your registration fee. To maximize the opportunity to fill all spots available in the school, we ask that if you must withdraw your registration that you do so as early as possible.
