You will learn to drive and race and hone your skills preparing you for the next step of the ladder. Once signed off of your Novice Permit, you will be ready to move to Step 2 with your Full Competition License. (ages 14 and up)


Step 2

3 “major” weekends. A “Major” is SCCA’s premier and most competitive racing series. It is the path that allows you to gain points towards the National Championship Runoffs. Only 40 drivers from across the country will earn enough points to be invited to the Runoffs, the race that gains you the most prestige and exposure as a driver.
