The session will be held at Reeves BMW, 109 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa 33612, from 3:30 pm to 6:00 pm (Showroom second floor classroom). Attendance at this session is required to participate on Day 2.
Day 2 (November 8), conducted at the Hernando County Airport in Brooksville from 8 am to 4 pm, consists of in-car driving instruction using the student's own vehicle.
