SCCA Membership is required - you can join online at any time on the National SCCA web page: www.scca.com  [look for Join SCCA button at top of each page]

You will need to provide your own gear (helmet, suit, gloves, etc) and car. See the SFR Driver School page for the complete list of safety gear.

Novice Permit and Physical Exam -  You will need to obtain your Novice Permit and turn in a Physical Exam form to the National Office. It can take several weeks to receive your Novice Permit after you send the forms to SCCA National. DO NOT leave this until the last minute!
