Driver Skills Overview: 

Driver Skills is a one-day clinic on the fundamentals of performance driving hosted by the Pacific Northwest Region of the Porsche Club of America. Appropriate for novices and experienced drivers alike, Driver Skills will make you a safer, more competent driver. Working 1:1 with our Porsche, Audi and BMW club instructors, students rotate in small groups through the following educational segments:

  • Ground school (classroom)
  • Slalom 
  • Wet skidpad
  • Threshold braking and accident avoidance
  • Figure-8
  • Autocross

Driver Skills runs from 7:50am (gates open at 7) to 3:30pm, followed by an optional segment which runs to 6pm or dark, whichever comes first.

None of the segments involve timing or competition. Instead, you work 1:1 with our instructors at a pace appropriate for your experience and comfort level. Together, the segments improve your ability to look ahead, place the car precisely, control weight transfer, steer with the throttle, and brake effectively. Run groups are small, which means that wait time between runs is minimal. At the end of the primary sessions, students are encouraged to apply the lessons of the day in an optional segment on a large maneuvering course.

Many see this as great prep or skill growth for our Driver Education, or Autocross events. This course also qualifies you for Driver Education (track driving) events with the local Audi and BMW clubs.

The Driver Skills participation fee is $140, including a hot lunch.  Limited helmet rentals are available for $25, with the fee waived for those participants under 21 years of age.  Continue to the next page for more information...
