How Do I Get My License?
NASA Arizona will accept licenses from other organziations in lieu of HPDE1-4 and a formal “Competition School” geared towards preparing a driver for the rigors, knowledge and skillset required to participate in a formal NASA competition “race”. The list of acceptable licenses from other organizations does change from time to time so it is best to email Tage@nasaaz.com to get the most current details and requirements which could include a verbal or written test. Regardless of the competition license, it will not replace the fact that all competition drivers will need to purchase a “NASA membership” and “NASA Competition License” to participate in a NASA Race.
It is required that all NASA competition drivers fully read the Club Codes & Regulations (CCRs) prior to their first event and have the CCRs accessible for reference at all events going forward.
The CCRs and all race series rules can be found here
What is the difference between a “Provisional License” and a “Competition License”?
A Provisional License is issued to new racers with little or no experience with racing or sometimes issued to racers with experience with other organizations that NASA does not recognize at a National level. A “Provisional License” will allow drivers to compete just like a regular “Competition License” holder but they will only be allowed to participate in races hosted by the region who issued it (i.e. Arizona points races only, if NASA Arizona issues the Provisional). A driver will remain a Provisional license holder until they compete at least 4 races without incident.
After four races are completed, that driver may apply for a full “Competition License” which will allow that driver to compete in NASA races in any of the 15+ regions across the country including the National Championships.

NASA Arizona’s Time Trial competition season lasts from Jan-Dec each year locally as well as the opportunity to compete Nationally at the NASA Nationals in Sept of each year where they can go up against the best of the best in the country across 15 NASA regions! NASA TT competitors are eligible for the coveted NASA Arizona Champion jacket as well as many contingency awards such as free tires, brake pads, gift certs, discounts and cash!
In total, there are nine Time Trial classes, each region has its own Regional Championship Series that gives us our regional champions, and qualifies drivers to become eligible to compete at the NASA National Championships at Mid-Ohio. Awards are usually provided to our top-level finishers at each of the regional events. To compete in NASA TT, a driver must obtain a NASA National TT License, which requires the driver to be an advanced level driver or racer. Driver and vehicle safety are among our top concerns, and we have a pro-active safety program. Our HPDE program, that accommodates drivers of all experience levels, is the best way for a driver to become qualified to compete in Time Trial. The Time Trial program completes the NASA competition pathway from NASA-X to wheel-to-wheel racing.
