To help realize our hidden desires and long-cherished wishes, Race Car Driving Schools exist. Danger and immense pleasure, juxtaposed together, make up race car driving. Therefore, to drive a race car or to race, we have to attend a proper Race Car Driving School.

Many schools provide excellent Race Car Driving lessons to novices or even experienced drivers. Schools can be divided into several types, such as drag Racing Schools, NASCAR Racing Schools, kart Racing School, GT Racing Schools, and many more. Teaching comprises of a mixture of theory and practical classes. Such schools even provide all the necessary equipment and gear needed while racecar driving.

Using NASCAR-style cars, Finish Line Racing Schools provide a variety of courses all suited to different levels of students. The Buck Baker Racing School also belongs to the NASCAR-style category.

Usually it helps if a given school is accredited by the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America), as it enables the driver to participate in the competitive races organized by the club. Skip Barber Racing School, Russell Racing School, Bertil Roos Racing School, Derek Daly Racing School, Panoz Racing School, and Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving are the schools that have been accredited by the SCCA.

Russell Racing School provides courses that span from several hours to several days. Ranging from basic courses to advanced-level courses, it provides excellent driving lessons.
