Driving Licence

At Cumbria Karting we aim to provide, at a relatively low cost, a fantastic and memorable experience for everyone. We take safety very seriously and therefore we do a compulsary Junior Driving Licence for anyone aged 6 - 13.

Our Licence session consists of a full safety breifing from a trained marshal followed by a supervised 30 minutes of track time with controlled incidents and tests on flag rules. Upon completion a Junior Driving Licence will be issued in the form of a credit card style licence which will eliminate the need for full briefings in the future.

At Cumbria Karting we want everybody to have fun therefore we do Junior Karting – the youngest we can accommodate for is 6 years of age.

The first karting experience they will have with us will be their Junior Driving Licence. This session although they will be tested it is more of a lesson that our rained marshals will ensure to make fun and suited to the group. Every child will be given a full safety briefing that will cover all aspects of safety and rules from track to flags. Questions will be asked during this briefing in order to make sure that everything is being understood. A marshal will then explain how to properly and safely use the go-kart, they will demonstrate how to safely get in and out. All the Junior karts are equipped with headrests, seat belts and brake lights as well as adjustable steering wheels, pedals and seats to ensure comfortability.

Once they are in their karts the marshal will lead them on to the track for 30 minutes track time in which controlled incidents will take place and they will be tested on their braking in addition to knowledge and understanding of flags and track rules. Marshals will provide advice where needed, show the children the best lines to take on the track and make the experience for the child as fun as possible.

Upon completion of the 30 minutes they can do and extra 10 minute race for just £5 per child, notify reception is wanting to do this. There will then be a debriefing in which if the child demonstrates that they have listened and understood then they will be issued with a credit card style licence with their name on. They can then come and partake in our other Junior karting races.

Booking is essential. Junior races can be done any day of the week except Saturdays
