Getting Started with Kids (under age 16)
We have licensing courses designed specifically for youngsters.
Minor Licensing Courses 11 to 15 year olds (Rental Karts) 5 to 10 year olds (Kid Kart/Cadet Kart) 12 to 15 year olds must complete a minor licensing course if they want to take part in regular rental sessions. The course is made up of three 15 minute lapping sessions with an instructor. If the driver comes through it successfully, they will be issued with a license and allowed to take part in regular rental sessions. 5 to 10 year olds will be best fitted to our kid or cadet karts. They must also complete a minor licensing course, which involves a braking exercise, followed by a slalom course. From there, drivers will complete a 10 minute lead-follow session with an instructor. If they come through this, they will be issued with a license and allowed to take part in regular kid kart lapping sessions.
*Andersen RacePark reserves the right to decide whether a driver is of a suitable size or condition to drive the karts
All instruction based courses must be scheduled ahead of time, and typically are run Wednesday and Saturday nights. Private classes available on request.
