Driver Education

Driver EducationThe purpose of the UCR Driver’s Education (DE) Program is to provide a safe, structured and controlled teaching and learning environment. The programme is designed so that the participants can improve their driving abilities and acquire a better understanding of vehicle dynamics and high performance driving safety.

Participants will experience first-hand the capabilities of their own Porsche in a controlled, closed-circuit environment and will gain the skills that will enhance safer vehicle operations in all driving situations.

Introductory Driving School (IDS)

Drivers who have never completed a qualified Skid School program  are required to attend a mandatory full day Introductory Driving School. The school teaches you basic driving theory and gives you some practical experience developing car control through a series of demonstrations and exercises.
