Driver Education

There are two ways to answer the question. What is Driver’s Education. From a technical perspective, Driver’s Education (DE) is a program developed by the PCA to allow drivers of all skills the opportunity to drive on real race tracks in a safe and fun environment. Typically a DE event is run over 1, 2 or 3 days. Each day will have four or five driving groups (divided by experience and skill level); each goes out four times for 20 to 30 minutes. Groups are divided to ensure maximum safety and fun by enabling a driver to be on the track with similarly experienced drivers at similar speeds. In the novice groups, drivers are accompanied by PCA-recognized instructors who will teach high performance driving techniques and fundamentals. “DEing” is not, however, racing or even preparation for racing. The events are not timed and there are no prizes. Passing zones are intentionally restricted to ensure safety and safety rules are enforced.
