Yas Racing School

FIA Assessment Racing License Course


The FIA Assessment Racing License Course takes the form of a short written test and a practical driving test. You will also need to have a medical to complete your licence application.

What to expect

After a one-hour classroom training session, your group of just four drivers is given a multiple-choice test. The test will measure your understanding of the various signal flags that can be shown during a race and assess your appreciation of the safety aspects of racing.

After the test, you will have a 30-minute on-track assessment during which you need to demonstrate your understanding the basics of racing lines, circuit etiquette and car control. We don’t expect you to be setting lap records - you just need to prove you have the skill to control the car on circuit.

The instructor then passes or fails you based on both your written and practical test. Should you pass, Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management (ADMM) will provide you with a pass certificate which you will need to submit at the ATC offices with the relevant paperwork and payments (all of which can be downloaded from the ATC website, atcuae.ae). You will also be required to undergo a medical test. Upon passing it, the ATC will issue your licence.

We recommend you invest in some of our Private Tuition and track time before attempting the FIA Assessment. You can book private tuition with a Yas Marina Circuit Racing School professional driver and attend Track Days to perfect your skills and build up experience.
