Below you will find the most frequently asked questions. Is your question not listed? Please email your question to info@rsz.nl.

RACING COURSE

HOW DO I GET MY RACING LICENSE?

The page below describes exactly which licenses are available and how you can get them: KNAF RACING LICENSE

CAN I GET MY EU LICENSE IMMEDIATELY?

Which can! But then you have to follow a 3-day course. This is the requirement of the KNAF. You can choose a 3-day course or choose a 2-day course and supplement it with a RACING COURSE UPGRADE

CAN I ALSO RENT A HELMET?

Yes, you can. Renting the helmet for the course is €10. Please indicate this in advance when you register.

DO I ALSO HAVE TO TAKE THE EXAM?

You can, but you shouldn't! If you want to get your KNAF Race license, both the theory and the practical exam are mandatory.

SHOULD I FOLLOW ALL PARTS?

All components must be followed to meet the requirements of the KNAF to obtain your KNAF Race License.

WHICH IS BETTER: FRONT OR REAR DRIVE?

Front or rear wheel drive is a personal choice. You can learn how to race with both types of cars. However, a front-wheel drive car is not suitable for a drift course.

I'M GOING TO RACE ABROAD, WHAT LICENCE DO I NEED?

The rules regarding licenses abroad can be quite different from those in the Netherlands. It is likely that you will need at least an EU license. Contact the KNAF to inquire about this.

HOW OLD DO YOU NEED TO BE TO DO THE RACE COURSE?

From the age of 14 you can participate in the racing course. We want you to be able to shift gears and drive a car reasonably well. A driver's license is therefore not necessary.

CAN I DO THE RACE COURSE WITH SOMEONE ELSE IN ONE CAR?

That is not possible, because the KNAF prescribes a number of exercises and a certain job experience for obtaining your license. If you would share a car, you would not meet the prescribed driving time.

CAN I TAKE THE COURSE MORE OFTEN?

Absolute! You learn something from every course. It used to be very common that you took part in the course every winter to stay at your level. But you can of course also look at one of our other courses such as the Drift course or Race course Upgrade.

CAN I RACE IMMEDIATELY?

If you have followed the racing course and have passed your practical and theory exam, you can apply for your KNAF Race License and participate in Club races.

DOES THE COURSE CAR HAVE TO BE COMPLETELY RACE READY AND HAVE A ROLL CAGE FOR EXAMPLE?

There are currently no specific requirements for a course car. The car must of course be safe, there must be at least two seats (for student and instructor) and it must be as quiet as possible.

DO I HAVE TO WEAR RACING GEAR DURING THE COURSE?

Special racing clothing is not (yet) required at this time. If you do have this equipment, put it on, so be safe. Wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing in layers (to account for temperatures) and thin-soled shoes.

RACING COURSE UPGRADE

WHAT IS THE RACE COURSE UPGRADE?

If you have obtained your Club license and you want an EU license, you can do this one day course. This day then counts as your third course day, because it is a KNAF requirement that you must do three days of course for an EU license. You will probably no longer have to take a theory exam, but only a practical exam (you can inquire about this at the KNAF or through us). Of course you have to show the desired EU driving level during the practical exam.

CAN I ALSO RENT A HELMET?

Yes, you can. Renting the helmet for the course is free. Please indicate this in advance when registering.

DO I ALSO HAVE TO TAKE THE EXAM?

You don't have to, but if you want to go from Club level to EU level, you have to.

CAN I TAKE THE COURSE MORE OFTEN?

Yes, of course.

CAN I GET MY EU LICENSE IMMEDIATELY?

Yes, of course.

SHOULD I FOLLOW ALL PARTS?

Yes, of course.

RACE & TACTICS

I WANT TO DO THE RACE&TACTICS COURSE INSTEAD OF THE RACE COURSE, IS IT POSSIBLE?

The Race&Tactics is a one-day advanced course. You need a racing license and an official race car for this, so it is not suitable for beginners. If you don't already have a license, you start with a two- or three-day race course.

CAN I ALSO RENT A HELMET?

Yes, you can. Renting the helmet for the course is €10. Please indicate this in advance when you register.

DO I ALSO HAVE TO TAKE THE EXAM?

No. Exam is not part of the Race & Tactics course. If you want to go from Club to EU level, you must book a Race Course Upgrade.

CAN I TAKE THE COURSE MORE OFTEN?

Yes, of course.

CAN I GET MY EU LICENSE IMMEDIATELY?

Yes, of course.

SHOULD I FOLLOW ALL PARTS?

Yes, of course.

DRIFT

CAN I ALSO RENT A HELMET?

Yes, of course.

CAN I ALSO SHARE A CAR AND THE COURSE?

During this course it is possible to share a car and the driving time. Of course we advise you to come all day 😉

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 1.0 AND 2.0?

At 1.0 you really learn the basics of drifting during a left turn, right turn and a drift circle. During 2.0 we set out a drift course that you can drift with an “open pit lane” principle.

IS MY CAR SUITABLE FOR THE DRIFT COURSE?

For the drifts you must have a car with rear-wheel drive (or possibly 4-wheel drive), front-wheel drives are not suitable for this course. When in doubt, you can always email us at info@rsz.nl
