Video: Mercedes-Benz AMG Driving Academy offers ten-part course on YouTube

Mercedes-Benz AMG Driving Academy

Mercedes-Benz is one of many high-end manufacturers that offer comprehensive driving classes to help educate owners on how to handle a car in specific and high-performance situations. However, such classes don’t come cheap. For instance, Mercedes-Benz AMG’s Driving Academy starts at a hefty $1,595 for just a one-day “Basic-Training” class and can go upwards of $3,695 for the three-day “Pro-training” course.

But in the event that you can just afford a Mercedes-Benz and can’t dolly up the extra couple grand for an AMG Driving Academy experience, the driving school now offers a ten-part driving course on YouTube with television presenter and experienced racer and instructor, Tommy Kendall.

Also, if anyone is interested, AMG is offering fans of their Facebook page a chance to win a trip to one of AMG’s Driving Academy events with a friend or two. So have a look at the videos after the jump. They are definitely worth a look.
