To race with the CMRA you must take the CMRA License School
and purchase a license.
Riders that do not have experience with closed-course competition
are encouraged to participate in any of the numerous track
days available to non-racers to gain experience and decide
if racing is the sport for you.
The CMRA License School is offered at approved Track Day
Organziations at various times and locations throughout the
year. The current 2013 list of approved Track Day Organizations
Motorcycle School, Lone
Star Track Days and RideSmart
Motorcycle School. The school's main purpose is
to prepare newcomers for their first race. To take the CMRA
License School you will be required to wear full protective
equipment, but your motorcycle is not required to be fully
race prepared. More information, including schedules and locations
can be found by visiting their websites. Advance registration
for the CMRA License School is strongly encouraged.
Upon graduation from the License School and purchase of a
CMRA License you will be immediately eligible to race with
the CMRA as a Provisional Novice. Within one year of the school
you must complete two weekends of successful racing and two
weekends of corner working to be promoted to the full Novice
level. More information about licensing and equipment requirements

ALREADY A RACER?
The CMRA accepts your current competition license from many
road racing organizations as proof of your experience. If
you are a current or recently active licensed racer from another
organization you will usually not be required to take the
CMRA License School. In most cases you will be allowed to
purchase a CMRA license
at the same level as your current license. Please contact
the CMRA for more information.
