Driver's Education Info & Forms
The mission and purpose of the Porsche Club of America's Driver Education Program is to provide a safe, structured and controlled teaching and learning environment.
The PCA DE Program is designed so that participants can improve their driving abilities and acquire a better understanding of vehicle dynamics and driving safety.
Participants will experience first-hand the capabilities of high performance automobiles in a controlled, closed-course environment and acquire skills that will enhance safer vehicle operation in all driving situations.
One giant word of caution: this adventure can become very addictive.
Our instructors will teach you to drive your Porsche the way Stuttgart designed it to be driven.
PCA DE schools are run in a safe and controlled environment on a closed course.
Like any new sport your instructor will guide you into this exciting world of high performance driving.
The PCA, has developed a set of
Minimum Standards to be used as a common set of safety-based rules upon which to build and improve regional
DE programs, National Instructor Training Schools and High Performance Driving Clinics.
These standards have been designed to be basic in nature with an emphasis on proven safe practices, and they are designed to be used for regions that wish to tailor their own programs to their entrants. Regions or Zones may have more stringent rules, but none more lenient.
