DRI’s Testing Facility: DRI-Minter

DRI has a proprietary vehicle dynamics area (VDA) test facility, located near Bakersfield California.  Click here for a list of nearby accommodations.

This secure paved area is suitable for vehicle handling, braking and ride tests, pass-by noise measurements, and studies of driver behavior. In particular, it can accommodate NHTSA style “Fishhook” maneuvers and other safety-related NHTSA tests. A 1300 foot long, 30 foot wide run up lane leads onto the main maneuvering area, which is 300 feet wide and 800 feet long including the throat. Shop and office space are provided adjacent to the VDA.
