Whether you’re a seasoned track day veteran, a former racing driver, or are starting out fresh, Castle Combe Circuit offers the full racing driver starter package in the form of Motorsport UK’s nationally-recognised ARDS Novice Driver Training Course.

To start things off, you’ll need to purchase the associated ARDS ‘Go Racing’ Starter Pack – available from Motorsport UK – which contains:

  • A Competition Licence application form
  • A booklet outlining the next steps towards your first Competition Licence

Once you have your Starter Pack, you will need to book and pass your ARDS Novice Driver Training Course at Castle Combe Circuit.

If you are under 60, you will no longer need a full medical, but must obtain a vision test from your optician.

It’s then a case of completing and returning your application form in order to obtain your licence! You will then be able to compete in eligible club-level or championship events.
