Q: What do I need to do to participate?
You can secure your space at a Jaguar Performance Driving Academy by completing the registration form on this site. You’ll choose the location and date of your choice. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email outlining a hotel recommendation near the track and any available negotiated rates at that time. Finally, you will need to arrange for your travel to the event. All drivers will be required to sign a waiver and complete an introductory safety briefing prior to participation.*
All participants staying at the recommended hotel will receive complimentary transportation to and from the track.
Please join us for a welcome reception at the hotel the evening prior to your day at the track. Your track experience for Level 1 begins at 8:00 am and ends at 1:00 pm for the morning session, or begins at 12:00 noon and ends at 5:00 pm for the afternoon session. Levels 2 and 3 begin at 8:00 am and end at 5:00 pm.
Please dress comfortably. Closed-toed, flat-bottomed shoes are required.
Q: As a Jaguar R, Supersport or Ultimate model owner, is my spot in the Jaguar Performance Driving Academy guaranteed?
Spaces in the Jaguar Performance Driving Academy are limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. You will have 12 months from the time you purchase your vehicle to attend a complimentary session. Please refer to the Schedule page for upcoming event dates and locations.*
Q: Can I bring a guest?
Guests are not permitted at the track for any Level. Guests are welcome at the evening receptions only.
Q: How do I get to the track from the hotel?
If you elect to stay at the recommended hotel near the track, a complimentary shuttle will drive you from the hotel to the track and back to the hotel at the conclusion of the event. If you prefer to stay at another hotel, you will be responsible for your own transportation to and from the track.
Q: I've never driven on a track before. Is that a problem?
We use a track because it is the safest environment to learn about car control. This is not a racing school. It is a high-performance driving academy where you will learn how to use more of a vehicle's performance. Our highly skilled driving coaches will explain how to utilize this performance, and demonstrate the incredible capabilities of the Jaguar XFR, XJR, XKR, and F-TYPE R Coupe.
Q: I already have plenty of racing experience. What's in it for me?
If you have racing experience, you certainly understand the enjoyment of fast driving on a track. At the Jaguar Performance Driving Academy you will receive expert coaching from drivers with established racing credentials who are also highly adept at transferring their skills to you. You will also be able to gain experience on a track you may not have driven on before. Our objective is for you to enjoy yourself while exploring the fantastic capabilities of a Jaguar performance model.
Q: What if I cannot attend the event that I have already registered for?
Once registered, if you are unable to attend your session, please contact the Jaguar Performance Driving Academy Concierge immediately at (866) 513-7200 so that we can assist you. A cancellation 15 days or more prior to your scheduled event day is subject to a $250 non-refundable fee. Cancellations 14 days or less prior to your driving event day are subject to the following non-refundable fees: Level 1, $450; Level 2, $950; Level 3, $1,450; Levels 1 and 2, $1,175 and Levels 2 and 3, $1,750.

Q: Can I drive my own car on the track?
No. Jaguar will provide the vehicles at the track. These vehicles are maintained by Jaguar personnel to meet the safety requirements of the program. Insurance regulations do not allow personal vehicles to be used.
Q: Are there any circumstances that would limit my participation?
Any Jaguar Performance Driving Academy staff member reserves the right to limit any person's participation due to things such as, but not limited to, apparent intoxication, or perceived inability to safely operate an automobile or partake in an activity.
