Observed Licence Tests

What is an Observed Licence Test (OLT)?

An OLT is a test of practical skill, where CAMS approved instructors observe you under modified race conditions.

Successfully completing the OLT is a critical component of receiving your racing licence. It gives you the opportunity to show you have a basic understanding and knowledge of manoeuvring a vehicle at high speeds to ensure the safety of both yourself, and others including drivers, officials and spectators.


Prior to Booking in for an OLT

  • Step 1: Submit a Licence Application Form (with a completed Medical where required from any GP) to CAMS Member Service ([email protected])
  • Step 2: Once you submit you licence application, CAMS member services will send you an email with an online lecture to complete. You will also be issued with a Pre-Licence Authority (PLA). The PLA allows you to participate in an OLT to complete your licence.
