Driver Education

Driver Ed provides the opportunity to experience the performance potential of your Porsche in a safe, controlled environment. You will receive classroom instruction in safety and high-performance driving techniques, and drive your own car on a road racecourse . This is not a racing school, but you get instruction from an experienced instructor, who rides with you. You learn proper braking, cornering, and track-reading skills in these two-day events. Safety, medical, and technical requirements must be met.

A typical event is two days long (Saturday & Sunday). In addition to the classroom instruction and on-track driving, you will have opportunities to ride on the track with your instructor, meet a bunch of great people during the day and at a Saturday night dinner if you choose.

Equipment needed:

Coupes/Targas: A helmet with a 2010 or newer Snell SA, K, or M safety rating. All natural-fiber clothing, fully enclosed shoes (no sandals). Plus your car, of course, in good mechanical condition, which will be verified by a technical inspection performed by a local mechanic or dealer and double-checked at the track.

Cabriolets: All of the above, plus a roll bar.

Boxsters: All of the above. Boxsters have a built-in roll bar. Be sure that the top of your head with helmet on is below the roll bar when in a normal seating position. We use the “broomstick” test. Place a broomstick across the roll bar & top of the windshield. If you sit below that you will be allowed on-track. If you don’t fit, Boxster roll-bar extensions are available that may solve the problem.
