Junior Drivers

Junior drivers are those aged between their 12th and 16th birthdays. Junior Competition Licences are available in:
  • M Grade (excluding Temporary M Grade)
  • C Grade
  • R Grade (Navigator Only)

The use of a junior competition licence is restricted to private venues or roads closed in accordance with the 10th Schedule of the Local Government Act.  The type of vehicle is also restricted for junior drivers.  Junior drivers may only drive single seaters with a maximum (corrected) capacity of 1600cc, or any other vehicle type to a maximum of 2500cc (corrected).  Refer Appendix One Schedule L Art 3.2 for the specific requirements.

All Junior Drivers, no matter the licence grade, must provide an indemnity form signed by their parent/legal guardian allowing them to compete in MotorSport.

M Grade Licence Requirements
A junior M Grade licence application will require the A003F Junior Driver Fitness Appraisal Form to be completed by a Physical Fitness Trainer/Secondary College Physical Education Teacher.  The completed form should be uploaded as part of the licence application, or alternately emailed directly to licence@motorsport.org.nz.
C or R Grade Licence Requirements

A junior C Grade or R Grade licence application will require the A003J Junior Driver Medical Examination Form to be completed by the applicant’s doctor.  The completed form should be uploaded as part of the licence application, or alternately emailed directly to licence@motorsport.org.nz.

Prior to applying for a C Grade competition licence a junior driver is required to have obtained an M Grade licence (as above) and have clearances signed off from five(5) ClubSport Level events, or have obtained a signed clearance from a MotorSport NZ licenced driving school.

A junior driver may apply for a C or R Grade licence without firstly completing the requirement of obtaining an M Grade licence as above.  In this case application must be made to the MotorSport NZ Competition Licence Panel and should include a summary of the applicant’s previous motorsport history and results to that point.  It is recommended that applicant contact the MotorSport NZ office prior to making any application.
