Welcome to Metro NY Driver Education!

Register at AFTER you read the intro below! Do an Event Search using the word Metro on the dashboard page.


The mission and purpose of the Porsche Club of America’s Driver’s 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 Weissach 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. These events are great sources of stories for the Monday morning coffee break. You will have dreams about various turns and wake up with memories of your instructor emphasizing BRAKE or DON’T LIFT. These schools are truly the only safe way to learn the engineering dynamics that went into the development of this famous racing marque.

However, it is noted that PCA DE events are not racing, nor preparation for racing. No times or placings are recorded, and no awards or prizes are received by the participants of PCA Driver’s Education events; just a lot of fun and camaraderie. Yes, it’s a highly social activity enjoyable for spectators who accompany and support drivers. That said, ANY conduct considered by the Porsche Club of America to be either unsafe or inconsistent with the spirit or purpose of the Driver’s Education Program will not be
permitted. This approach keeps the events safe and enjoyable for all participants and attendees!
