Basic requirements include:
 - Licensed drivers aged 16 and up (under 18? parent or guardian must accompany you)
 - Helmet, rated Snell 2015 or better (you can rent one from us if you do not have one)

 - Your track-worthy passenger car (such as sedan, coupe, station wagon, etc.) No SUVS, no pick-ups, no vans permitted
 - Advanced/Intermediate drivers welcome to bring their track cars. before each event, drivers will need to perform a Tech Inspection on their car. This is required before each and every event, even if you just looked at your car last week or last month. This is for the safety of our instructors, your fellow drivers, and most of all - for you. This inspection can be done by you, your friends, or any qualified mechanic. Note that in-car fire extinguisher is no longer required.

BYOC (Bring Your Own Car) allows individuals to use their own cars for high performance driving school at the MotorSport Ranch. Our BYOC program caters to many drivers - beginner to advanced. We provide three separate levels grouped by experience, each with their own curriculum - Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced. Our single day program provides classroom instruction sessions along with up to 2 hours of track time. Track sessions are spread throughout the day so you can learn in the classroom and then practice what you've learned on the track. The learning is progressive, so by the end of the track event you will have come a long way!

The Novice program is for drivers who are new to driving on a racing circuit, or only have one or two previous events. The program includes classroom instruction throughout the day, on-track drills to help you learn some basic skills before you drive at speed, in-car instruction, and of course several sessions at speed.

The Intermediate program is tailored towards drivers who have mastered the basics, and includes classroom instruction throughout the day with helpful feedback on techniques and driving lines, as well as in-car instruction and driver evaluation.

The Advanced group is for experienced drivers. In-car instruction is still available and encouraged, and classroom time is more specific, with the focus on fine tuning of skills using advanced techniques.

The BYOC program runs rain or shine, and driving on a wet track is one of the most beneficial exercises to help advance your driving skills at any experience level.
