Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a licence to drive?

Yes, you need a P plate or above to drive our cars. You also need to be at least 17 years old to drive our cars — it’s not child’s play!

Do I need to confirm my booking before the day?

As long as you have received a confirmation of your booking directly from Rally School Australia or one of our agents, there’s no need to ring to confirm your booking. You won’t receive another reminder from us so please ensure you make note of the date and time.

What if it’s raining?

Decisions are not usually made regarding postponing days until after 7.30am on the day when an inspection of the track is carried out. You are welcome to call us on 1800 208 000 after 7.30am to see if the day will be running. We will also try and contact each participant via email and SMS to advise if the day is being postponed.
Please note: we usually only have the contact details for the person who originally purchased the voucher.

Are there any height/weight requirements?

There is a height restriction of around 193cm (6’4”) as you will be wearing a helmet and there is a roll cage fitted in all our cars. There is a weight restriction of approx. 130kg as you need to fit into a moulded racing seat and harness.

When do I choose what car(s) I drive?

On the day, we will have a selection available.

What do I wear?

Long pants & enclosed shoes, as the floor may be hot.

Can I bring spectators?

Yes, they are welcome, and remember to bring the cameras as there is great viewing at all of our locations.

Can I change my booking?

The date can be changed up until 14 days before your booked date. We dont allow changes to bookings within 14 days, unless there is a waitlist for the session

Do you need to know how to drive a manual?

Most of our vehicles are 3 pedal- manual*; however, you’re able to participate quite easily with limited experience of manual driving.

We also offer hotlap (passenger seat) experiences with our expert instructors, if you have no manual experience.

*From Mar 2018, we’re introducing a Paddle Shift (no clutch) option suitable for all drivers, and this roll out had begun with NSW (Western Sydney & Hunter valley) now having the option for No Manual experience!

How can my guests be involved?

Guests can purchase their own hotlap for $50 and are able to sit with you in between your driving sessions. Hotlaps are subject to availability. They can even take photos and video footage of you from beside the track.

Our cars are genuine rally cars, so there’s no back seats and all hotlaps are experienced in the front seat, our instructors behind the wheel.

Can I buy food/drinks there?

Light refreshments are provided for participants; however, there are NO facilities for you or your guests to purchase food/drink so bring your own along.

At Walky Park in SA, the Walkerville All Cars Club will be running a basic kiosk.

Can I buy an in-car recording of my drive?

Yes you can for $50.00. This can be arranged on the day when you’re booking in, or you can ‘ADD ON’ in the website checkout.

How early do I need to be there before my starting time?

You only need to arrive 5 – 10 minutes before your start time. There is no need to arrive earlier as it only increases your wait time.

Is there public transport to the venue?

No, sorry. For some group bookings, we can organise transport to and from our locations, so contact us to learn more.

How long will my session run?

Most sessions run for approximately 2 hours, except the Half-Day, obviously!
