Sheryl A.Sheryl A. ★★★★★ My daughter and I recently went to their 3 day high performance driving school. We had more fun and learned so much. Cant wait to go back for more classes. It is worth every penny Highly recommend going, to learn racing or just to become a better driver.Leslie G.Leslie G. ★★★★★ Amazing school for teens. 2 of 4 have completed Radford teen class. The other two will be here when they hit 16. Gives the kids confidence in their driving, defensive driving skills, and an insurance discount. Worth every penny.Peter D.Peter D. ★★★★★ Just completed the two day high performance class at Radford and it was amazing. The instructors, William, Spencer and Rob were truly world class. They explained the concepts easily and then watched us practice them in the car. This was an on track, in car experience. Class room time was kept to a minimum. The cars the Hellcats were fun to drive and I have a new appreciation of Dodge and the Performance team at Dodge. A great time and it made me a better driver.Ali J.Ali J. ★★★★★ I have gone through the 1 day and 3 day HPDE at Radford. And I have made an appointment to go for the 4 day experience. Hands down this is the best decision I’ve made by going here. Although it is a little expensive just know its worth every penny. The instructors are all very experienced with most of them, having decades of time behind the wheel as an instructor. Everyone at the facility is very nice and welcoming. But in all honesty the things you are taught here and the things you pick up on are way more valuable than any power mod could be for your car. For those with High HP cars this school can teach you how to effectively and efficiently use all of that power.Gene M.Gene M. ★★★★★ I recently completed the Two Day Advanced Racing course, and it was excellent! The most amount of seat time I’ve ever had at a racing school. The Challenger Hellcat, while ridiculously heavy for a track application, was an excellent learning tool. The Challenger amplified all of my inputs, and was rewarding and fun at the same time. My instructor, B.J., provided excellent on track, and off track coaching supported by data analysis of my laps.

Instructors are incredible, they've all been here for anywhere from 12 to 30 years. They really believe in the instruction they give and teaching folks valuable skills.

I did one track day prior to this, but had never done any real classes or coaching before. Radford came highly recommended and it didn't disappoint. First off, all the instructors were awesome people and teachers who seemed to love their job. They have the expectation that you will make a variety of mistakes but do a great job of breaking down your mistakes and helping you improve quickly. This class is also very heavy on track time with just enough class time to cover some concepts, but then sending you out in the car to practice them. This was an amazing experience and I'm looking forward to going back for their advanced classes. I can't recommend it enough!Justin L.Justin L. ★★★★★ Awesome experience with the 2 day school. Came away a much better and more confident driver at speed. All of the instructors are top notch and give you the immediate feedback you need to improve at braking, turning and acceleration.

Private Instruction - FAQs

What is included with a private instruction program?

Everything can be included! If you dream it, we deliver it. There is literally no box, boundary or limitation when it comes to your Private Instruction.

We have everything you need – including equipment and vehicles – to customize a program that offers exactly what you want, for the number of people you want, for the amount of time you want.

Can I drive my vehicle on the track?

Yes. Any personal car including convertibles, trucks, and SUVs, is allowed on the track.

However, prior to driving your personal vehicle on the track it must pass our safety inspection. Our instructors and on-site mechanics will inspect the overall mechanical integrity of your vehicle, which includes tire pressure and tread, brake pads, wheel torque and fluids. Please note that if your car is leaking fluids, it will not be allowed on the track.

Your vehicle is not required to have racecar components (seat or harness, roll cage, fire extinguisher, tow hooks, kill switch, window nets, etc.) to drive on the track.

Is a drivers license required?

No. We are on a closed track facility, which means drivers (including youth without a driver’s license) can participate in supervised driver training exercises. In fact, private Instruction is the perfect way to give new drivers the chance to become familiar with their vehicle, and gain confidence in various driving situations.

Is classroom time included?

Some classroom time is always beneficial. However, the amount of classroom time you need depends on your objectives and skill level.

Young drivers, for example, can benefit from classroom time when they can become more familiar with driving fundamentals, as well as learn more about the track layout and etiquette.

Classroom time is also a great way for more experienced drivers to review their progress and talk candidly with the instructors about their strengths and weaknesses.

Can I focus on specific skills or driving/racing technique?

Yes. If you’re interested in specific driving techniques like car control, weight transfer, braking/acceleration, we can focus specifically on what you need. Or, if you’re interested in a specific type of driving, like drag racing, stunt driving, performance driving or off-road handling, we can accommodate them all.

Can I drive the Ligier F4 cars?

The Ligier F4 race cars are available for Private Instruction. However, if you have no experience behind the wheel of an open wheel race car, your Private Instruction program will require additional training.

Are go karts available?

Yes. Our gas-powered go karts are the perfect way to fine tune your driving and racing skills. In fact, many of the best professional Formula 1 and NASCAR drivers got their start in karting. Our fleet of go karts can be your only focus, or combined with training in our Dodge//SRT performance vehicles, or your personal vehicle.

Can my private instruction program be confidential?

Yes. If you would like to schedule a confidential training session with our instructors or visit to our track, we will be more than happy to accommodate your schedule and discretion.

We have trained countless high profile individuals from across the business, entertainment, and sports industries – as well as government secret operations, who just want to be trained – or have access to our track – in private.
