Then you’ll need a National B Competition Licence before you begin.

This essential qualification provided by the sport’s governing body, the Motorsport UK (MS UK), is recognized throughout the UK. It includes both academic and practical assessments, ensuring your suitability and helping to maintain safety at circuits around the country.

Silverstone is one of the country’s leading Association of Racing Drivers Schools (ARDS) facilities. All our instructors are competitive drivers, ideally placing them to provide the knowledge and skills needed for a successful licence application, themselves holding Grade A ARDs Instructor licenses. You can rest assured you’ll be in safe hands and receive the very best support and guidance on your course.

The Junior drivers course is a full day mix of classroom theory and practical driving. Advanced courses are a one day programme that allows you the opportunity to gain a signature on your race licence upgrade.
