License

The first thing to do before going karting is to get your Karting Australia license. New drivers have the ability to choose from two licenses when starting karting.

 

The first license is a class E practice license. This license allows drivers to complete private practice sessions and only one race meeting per year after completing an Observed Driving Session. This license is perfect for someone who just wants to have a bit of fun driving a kart or for young kids that are ready for competition. This license is also the cheapest option for new drivers.

The second license drivers can obtain is a D class racing license. This license allows drivers to both practice and race. A driver will need this license if they plan to go racing. 

 

If a new driver is under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must get a Karting Australia participant license. This is a free license to obtain.

Visit Karting Australia to get your license.

WHAT you Need to go racing

There are a few things you we need before you can go kart racing. The first thing you will need is a kart. You can buy a kart brand new but there are also plenty of second hand karts around. The best way to find the kart that is right for you is to talk to people at the club or talk to one of the kart dealers located here in Tasmania.

 

You will also need safety equipment to protect you while racing. You will need the following;

- A go kart one piece race suit

- A go kart or road motorcycle full face helmet

- Abrasive resistant go kart gloves

- Abrasive resistant go kart boots

All of this safety equipment can be bought from our local kart dealers.
