How to Become a Ferrari Driving Instructor

Anyone who’s admired the world-class craftmanship of a Prancing Horse and has had the unique experience of stepping on the gas on a straightway has likely wondered how to become a Ferrari driving instructor. The short answer is: you need to be one of the greatest drivers in the entire world, since only racing champions are Corso Pilota instructors. These instructors are among the world’s finest racing talent, with many boasting wins from events such as 24 Hours of Daytona and 24 Hours of Lemans. 

You obviously need to be an expert when it comes to driving a Ferrari — but what exactly do you need to know how to do?

Basic Techniques

To become a Ferrari driving teach requires mastery especially of the basics. For starters, you will need to know how to explain to others not only the specifics of things such as ideal cockpit position, acceleration and braking, and precision driving lines, but you will need to be able to explain the why of your instructions. This will take more than just countless hours of practice behind the wheel: it will also take study, a command of the facts, and a thorough understanding of your vehicle.


Driving at High Speed

Driving safely at high speeds is a key part of the Ferrari experience, so you need to be prepared. You need to not only know how to drive at top speed, but you also need to understand the theory behind driving at high speeds in a way that you can tailor to an individual’s driving style and technical aptitude. 


A Look at Advanced Driving Techniques

Being a master of the Prancing Horse is about more than just being able to drive safely at high speeds: it’s about understanding all of the tiny details and being able to improve continually. You need to be able to analyze in-depth telemetry from your Ferrari to improve your techniques and the techniques of others. You need to be able to adapt sports driving techniques to everyday situations, and to help others understand how to do so.


Corso Pilota Driving School

The premier Ferrari driving school is Corso Pilota, and entrants can learn about everything from the basics (Sport Course) to more difficult techniques (Advanced Course) and expert-level driving skills (Evolution Course) before putting it all together in the capstone, which is the Challenge Course. The Challenge Course is designed to tie all of the skills learned in the previous courses together on the racetrack, including car setup and racing rules and regulations.

The goal for anyone who works their way through the Corso Pilota curriculum should be to race in the Ferrari Challenge, a series of races in which the participants are Ferrari owners. Like Corso Pilota, the Ferrari Challenge is only available to Ferrari owners.
