Tech Inspection sessions are open to all PCA club members and individuals from other marquee clubs participating in the Driver's Education (DE) activities with an approved vehicle. Even if you are not driving in a DE event you are encouraged to come out and meet fellow club members. If you have a new, or new to you, Porsche bring it along. You can have a knowledgeable tech inspector put your car on a lift and look it over and answer any (well, almost any) questions you might have about the care and maintenance of your car.

Basic Tech Requirements for Drivers Education

All DE participants’ cars must have a tech inspection performed within two (2) weeks of each DE.

2018 Tech Inspection Form: You will need this form completed and signed no more than two (2) weeks prior to each DE event.

There are two different inspections for each Drivers Education event. The first is the pre-event tech inspection. This is done prior to each event and all participating cars are required to have this tech inspection. During this inspection the car is put up on a lift and the inspector performing the work carefully goes over the car and fills out the front and top half of the second page and signs the tech form. This inspection is performed free of charge at the Potomac-run tech inspection sessions. Or you can take the car to any authorized Porsche service shop, although some shops may charge for this service. The shop technician must inspect your car while on a lift, complete the first and top half of the second page, and sign the form. Be sure they fill out the shop information (name, address and Telephone number) and staple on a business card, and that they sign the inspection form.

NOTE END TIME: All Potomac pre-DE tech events start at 9:00 AM and end at 12:30 PM. Note: there will be a $20.00 charge for anyone arriving after 12:00 noon for a tech inspection, and no arrivals will be accepted after 12:15 pm, as we need to be cleaned up and cleared out of the shops by 12:30 pm. All proceeds from late arrivals go to one of the PCA Potomac charities.

Note: Tech inspections are not required for the High Performance Driving Clinics (HPDC). However, participant’s cars will be inspected at the track the morning of the HPDC. The inspection times will be provided with the HPDC schedule.

Helmets

Helmets must be SA 2010 or SA 2015. SA stands for Special Applications and is made for use in cars and has fire resistance which M helmets might not have. M helmets are made for use with motorcycles and are not approved for DE for White, Black and Red run group drivers. M 2010 and M 2015 helmets are allowed for Green and Blue run group drivers, but SA rated helmets are highly recommended. But please note the allowance for M-rated helmets may be eliminated later in 2018. So if you have caught the DE bug, but are still using an M-rated helmet, it would be wise to get a SA-rated helmet. Also, the allowance of open-faced helmets in non-modified cars will be ending at some point in the not-too-distant future, so if you are shopping for a new helmet go for a closed-faced model.

Head & Neck Restraint Systems (new for 2018)

EFFECTIVE July 1, 2018: an approved Head and Neck Restraint System (HANS) device is required when using a harness.
