This is Dubai’s Millionaire VIP Driving School. Dubai residents can learn to drive in Range Rovers, Mercedes G-Wagens, Tesla Model Xs and even Porsche’s. This VIP driving school also ensures students get their drivers license in as little as 1 week! Welcome to the crazy world of Dubai’s millionaire driving academy.
Dubai’s Millionaire VIP Driving School
Sergi Galiano of Supercar Blondie fame took his ex-girlfriend to Dubai’s Emirates Driving School, where she got the chance to learn how to drive in a $250,000 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon.
If you are like most of us, you probably learned how to drive in a beat-up Toyota Corolla, or your parents’ family car. In Dubai, you can learn how to drive in a luxury car of your choice from Porsches, G Wagons, a Tesla Model X, C-200, or a Range Rover.
I wonder what kind of insurance premiums they pay – it must be a crazy amount, because this sounds like a very risky business venture. They have beaters in driving school because they expect learners to crash or dent these vehicles every once in a while. But this is Dubai, and we are talking about millionaires here.
That’s not all. The school will pick and drop you from your house in a luxury car, and also guarantee you’ll get your driver’s license in one or two weeks (now that’s what we call an attractive business proposition).
They have a VIP villa, with a private course where you can take your exam. There’s also a virtual driving simulator, where you can learn how to drive digitally before hitting the streets. The school still offers basic driving lessons, but you’ll have to drive a regular car.
I must admit, this driving school is way ahead into the future, offering driving lessons in a Tesla Model X.
So, would you want to learn how to drive in a G Wagon or a beat-up Corolla? I’ll still choose the beater for one reason. There are very few distractions from all the tech and driver-assist features.
