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.

If you want to rent a car rather than provide your own, see our Prep Shop Services and Rental Car List.

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!
