Here's another forum where a similar question was asked. Check out the replies he got.

Professional test driver

I guess being a great driver ain't gonna be enuf, you will have to learn a lot about how each and every component of the car (relevant to your testing) works.

Unless you know whats wrong with the car, you won't be able to give any feed back to the engineers.

This might sound insane but yes, playing NFS 5 will teach you a lot about vehicle dynamics, how each setup works under different conditions and how important they can be in making the car, a joy to drive.

Shan is right,
being a test driver is not only about ripping cars.u need to know everything about the car that you will be testing .
since you are only 15 years old now,u need to at least graduate in something related to automobiles before any company takes you.as of now ,none of the companies have anything here in india to do with test driver ,as all the cars that are sold here have been developed and tested outside the country.

so for now ,studies should be your main priority

It a bit like being a wine taster, you got to spot every small change in settings, responses etc.
