SCCA Race Experience Events are designed to be an access point for wheel-to-wheel racing for drivers of all experience levels including those without formal racing licenses or wheel-to-wheel experience. Below is a general outline of what's required to drive in an SCCA Race Experience Event and full eligibility details can be found in the document linked at the bottom of this page.

For Drivers at or above the “Age of Majority” (Typically Age 18 but may vary.)

  • Current Annual Membership in the SCCA.
  • Valid government-issued driver’s license.


Minor Drivers

The SCCA defines a Minor as an individual between 14 years and the age of majority as determined by the law in the state of the individual’s residence (typically 18 years old, but it may vary). A Minor may drive in the SCCA Race School provided they meet the following requirements:

  • Current Annual Membership in the SCCA.
  • Minor Drivers without a State Driver's License must have an SCCA Novice Permit (or Full Competition License).

A minor must submit the following to the National Office:

  • A completed Annual Parental Consent, Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement and a completed Minor’s Assumption of Risk Acknowledgement (note: forms vary by state and witnessing method). This document must be filed annually until the Minor achieves the age of majority in his state.
