Do I have to start at Level One?
Yes everyone does. This is not a reflection of your ability it's just how the School works. It has to start somewhere and we call that place Level One.

I recently went to what was supposed to be a training day and it basically turned into a lot of guys seeing how fast they could go around a track, with little or no input from the "instructor” who gives you personal tuition as a group of 3-4. We are a Cornering School and work just on Cornering techniques. You will attend 5 to 6 classroom sessions and have 5 to 6 on track sessions as well as off track training. You will be assigned an Instructor for the whole day and they work with you and 2 other students each time you go on track. It is a school, not a Track day. Anyone who treats it like a track day gets sent home.
