The Porsche Experience Center Atlanta created the Young Driver Experience to empower young people with the skills necessary to overcome a variety of challenges which we encounter on-road every day. By developing awareness, emphasizing hazard recognition and teaching strategic responses, we hope to instill confidence in young drivers. With 5 purpose-built modules to demonstrate diverse conditions and a highly skilled team of professional drivers, the PEC is uniquely equipped to facilitate this curriculum with finesse and expertise.
A professional driving coach will always accompany young drivers. Students must be 16-21 years old with a valid driver’s license. Learner’s permit is not accepted.

Built to Thrill
1 Mile Handling Circuit
This one-mile handling course is designed to mimic a winding country road. Its varying curves and undulations will teach a driver the finer points of choosing the correct path and brake application when navigating those conditions.
The large asphalt pad of the Dynamics Area is designed to stimulate unique maneuvers encountered during daily driving. Here, you’ll test the speed, agility, and lane-change performance of both yourself and the Porsche you’re driving.
As your vehicle travels over the plate, sensors trigger it to move randomly, mimicking sliding that occurs during inclement weather conditions. This experience forces the driver to react effectively in the scenario of a vehicle skid or spin.
Wet, Low-Friction Circle
Ever wanted to experience the glorious drift of a Porsche? In the low-friction circle, test out over-steer capabilities using a combination of throttle and steering input, on an inward slope of wet polished concrete.
Low-Friction Handling Circuit
Similar to the Circle, the Low-Friction Handling Circuit is a polished concrete surface. Featuring a series of unique, tight curves in various radius types on-and-off camber corners this circuit is designed to test the driver’s skills during extreme understeer conditions.
Designed with a Cayenne in mind, the Off-Road Circuit will test your handling skills and the expansive capabilities of a Cayenne's off-road engineering and safety technology.
