Waivers for Drivers Education Events

We have changed our waiver process as part of our response to COVID-19. 

There are two waivers from PCA and two waivers from Club Motorsports. In the past we had you complete the waivers on site after queueing in the registration line. This year the waivers are to be completed before the event.

For the Club Motorsports waivers download and complete the event and coronavirus PDFs. You will be required to turn in the completed forms when entering the Club Motorsports facility.

The PCA waivers will be completed entirely online using these three steps.SpeedWaiverSteps 

Use this link to initiate your PCA waiver process.

One final note -- everyone attending the event must complete and sign the four waivers.

HANS Device Required for multi-point harness

PCA Chief Driving Instructors and Region Officials,

The number one priority of PCA's HPDE Program is track safety. A core belief in the DE program is that a person can purchase a stock Porsche and take it to the track for an HPDE weekend, after an appropriate tech inspection of course. 

Some people choose to modify their cars to increase performance and others to increase safety. A popular modification made to track cars is the addition of a multi-point harness system. Starting January 1, 2019, the DE Minimum Standards will be expanded to state that if a driver uses a harness system, he or she will ALSO be required to utilize a head and neck restraint system, commonly referred to as a HANS device. 

A head and neck restraint device is an integral part of the harness system. Because the rule of equal restraint always applies, if a driver uses a harness system there must also be a harness system available and used by the passenger. Thus, both the driver and passenger will be required to use a HANS device. We highly encourage all DE participants to not wait until 2019 to comply with this new minimum standard. Head and neck restraint system devices are now more affordable and easily purchased online.

The DE Committee's decision was made over the course of two years after careful review of options, conversations with DE participants and discussion of a variety of perspectives. Please pass on this information to your DE drivers and instructors as soon as possible to avoid any confusion.

As a reminder, members of the DE Committee can be found here: https://www.pca.org/national-driver-education-committee

Thank you for all your time and effort to make your region’s DE program a safe and successful one. If you have feedback, please let me know!

Catch you in the Curves!
