Apply to Motorsport UK for a Go Racing Pack - this will include a competition licence & medical application form, a USB featuring the Motorsport UK yearbook and an instructional film. You will also receive booklet out lining the next steps to acquire your first competition licence.

 

 

Medical 

Once you have received your Motorsport UK Go Racing Starter Pack and you have read the booklet, you will need to book an appointment with your doctor for a medical examination. 

The examination will consist of your basic health, checking of any pre-existing conditions, weight, height, blood pressure, diabetes test, basic eye and reaction test also they will talk to you about any medication you maybe taking.

Once they have finished make sure they fill the correct section on your competition licence application. You don't have to go to your GP, company's such as the MSV do an ARDS and Medical test all in one which does work out cheaper! 

ARDS Course

Next stage is to book your 'ARDS' course.

ARDS stands for Association of Racing Driving Schools. In this course you will start with a welcome briefing which will include guidance of what to expect from the ARDS course and your first race meeting.

You will sit a 30 minute written test, this will include questions on circuit racing and your knowledge of the relevant flags used to communicate important safety information. The illustrations and the meaning of the relevant flags are in the Motorsport UK Go Starter Pack. Make sure you know your flags you must get 100% in this section of theory test.

Following the theory test you will head out on track with an ARDS examiner in a provided car, generally you will need your arms and legs covered with sensible shoes and you will need to wear a helmet, most centres have helmet hire if required. The examiner will evaluate your ability to lap the circuit in a safe and controlled manner using the 'Racing Line'. Remember this will be on a live track so watch out for other drivers. This isn't a test of your speed it's a test of your competency.

After your practical on track you will have a debrief and if successful they will stamp your Competition licence application form, which you can then send to Motorsport UK to receive your National B competition racing licence
