If you are new to the world of Porsche or an experienced driver but unsure of your vehicle's capabilities and your ability to control and enjoy it, the Lone Star Region offers its Car Control School. The instructional activity provides you with survivability skills that apply both to everyday driving and spirited driving. We want you to be comfortable and enjoy your vehicle, no matter what situation arises.
The Car Control School is a fun filled and exciting car control clinic. It is one of the few LSR activities open to licensed drivers below the age of 18, and it can be an excellent activity for a parent and a new driver. Participants will be paired with a group of experienced instructors, who will lead you through a day of thrilling discovery in a parking-lot course. This is not a racing school. This event teaches you the skills and techniques necessary to properly control your high performance sports car or every-day driver. You will have fun while learning to be a safer and more competent driver.
The one day school includes a combination of classroom instruction and individual behind-the-wheel clinics. Food and drinks are provided.

CCS is not a prerequisite to either Drivers Education or Autocross.
