Driver Education Program

We conduct our driver education program on closed circuit road courses to provide a controlled and safe environment. Our program is designed to afford participants the opportunity to develop car control skills in an organized manner. People of various skill levels attend our events for a variety of reasons. The common denominator is that they have a good time and learn from their experience. Safety of participants and their cars is our number one concern.

Before participating in each Driver Education event, you must have your car safety inspected by one of our approved Tech Inspection Centres. This must be done no more than 21 days prior to the event. Only Porsche cars are permitted in our DE programme.

Each new participant begins in the novice run group. Novice drivers are assigned an experienced instructor to ride with them in their car and they will drive at a moderate pace. Students are encouraged to drive at a pace appropriate to their skill level. The goal is to teach better car control. Students are discouraged from traveling at speeds that might place them or their cars in jeopardy.

As your skill level develops you will progress from the novice group to the more experienced run groups. Initially you will still have an instructor in the car at all times until you are “signed off”. Being “signed off” means that you have progressed to a stage where your instructor feels confident that you are ready to drive “solo”.

Be patient. There is no need to rush driving “solo”. In fact all drivers from newly “signed off” to instructor will be “checked out” periodically. It is one way for us to help you become a better and safer driver and it allows us to measure your progress and the success of our program.

This is NOT a competitive event and absolutely no timing devices are permitted.

Out of region drivers or those drivers who have not attended track recently will be assessed based on experience. They will usually have a “check out” instructor ride with then initially, especially if they have not driven at Mosport previously.

Note: There are often changes to the requirements and organization of the Drivers-Ed programme as seasons change. It is recommended that all participants, established and new, read the guidelines yearly in order to familiarize themselves with any revisions.
