Drift Limits’ Motorsport Academy Licence Terms and Conditions
Drift Limits’ Motorsport Academy Licence (MAL) is a document issued by Drift Limits to allow the holder to book in for our experiences (with some limitations listed below) as if they were the holder of a full UK driving licence. This is not a legally binding document or an entitlement to drive, it is an agreement between the named party and Parent(s) or Guardian(s) that the holder is of sufficient ability and has passed a mock examination to demonstrate their skill level, which has been recognised as Drift Limits as sufficient at that time. Any Collision Damage Waivers purchased and terms therein are unaffected by this agreement.
When placing an experience booking whereby the participant will be presenting the licence, the Driver’s Name must match that as declared on the Motorsport Academy Licence and a declaration must be given when booking that the attendee is the holder of a Drift Limits Motorsport Academy Licence.
The Motorsport Academy Licence is only valid and can only be used for booking when signed and validated by a Drift Limits Instructor. Drift Limits hold records as to which Motorsport Academy Licences have been validated.
The Motorsport Academy Licence is not transferable and can only be used by the named individual on the licence.
The Motorsport Academy Licence has no monetary value.
If Drift Limits believe the Motorsport Academy Licence is fraudulent or has been edited/doctored/amended in any way, any experience booked may be cancelled with no refund given.
You agree that by undertaking the Under 17s experiences we will hold some additional data on the participant which is limited to the following: Name, Date experience undertaken, Experience Type, Mailing List Status, Fundamental and Activity grade as given during experience. This is in addition to any data given during the booking process. This data is used solely by Drift Limits and is to track any progress during experiences in the interest of preventing fraudulent use or changes to the information on the Motorsport Academy Licence. The Mailing List status may be used as grounds to contact you regarding our experiences and promotions. You are able to opt out of The Mailing List and receiving any future contact from us at any time.
The Motorsport Academy Licence can be obtained by any child between the ages 11 and 16 inclusive. There is no obligation or requirement to undertake any previous Under 17s experience with us. Participation does not guarantee a Pass Grade or the issuing of a verified Motorsport Academy Licence. The experience can be taken at any time, however previous attempts and any pass grade on individual activity or skill will not be taken forward / into consideration.
Drift Limits hold the right to revoke any/all Motorsport Academy Licence(s) and revoke the right to undertake any experience booked that requires a Motorsport Academy Licence at any time with no notice period given.
Drift Limits hold the right to change any grading given on and/or revoke the Motorsport Academy Licence at any time, should they believe that skills require further development or are no longer to previous standard.
Drift Limits reserve the right to remove or alter the experience format at any time with no notice period given.
The Motorsport Academy Licence does not cover the driver to undertake the following experiences:
-Single Seater Experiences : F1000 14 Lap & F1000 30 Lap.
-McLaren MP4-12C GT3 Driving Experience.
-Ariel Atom 300 Driving Experience.
-Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo.

Both Height and Weight Restrictions and Requirements are as per the booked experience and participants must meet these in order to drive.
No refunds will be given should the participant be unable to drive the vehicle if they do not meet these requirements, an alternative experience may be offered at management’s discretion.
As our Under 17s Experiences are only open to participants from age 11 to 16. Our licensing prohibits persons of legal age to hold a driving licence from participating in our Under 17s experiences. (17 years old or over) Drift Limits are happy for any attained Motorsport Academy Licence to be valid up to age 18, so holders can continue to drive with us and undertake driving experiences should they wish up until their 18th Birthday. From this date on, the Motorsport Academy Licence will expire and a full Driving Licence will be required to participate in experiences with us.
Your Statutory Rights are not affected.
