New Licensing Procedure

New NHRA competition license procedures announced in November and implemented January 1, 2016 have been met with very favorable response from racers.


New license application forms and procedures are available online at We suggest that you simply attach the link (below) to our application story rather than upload the forms on your web pages as further updates to the forms are being made to continue to improve the ease of completing and processing for the racer.


All NHRA competition licenses now incorporate NHRA membership benefits, including catastrophic medical insurance in effect at any NHRA member track or NHRA sanctioned event. Existing license and membership expiration's will be merged into a single expiration for current licensed competitors as they are renewed.


Updates will include three new classifications: Professional, Pro/Sportsman and Sportsman. Certain levels of competitors in the new Pro/Sportsman and Sportsman categories can obtain a license without a medical exam and have a lower fee. Licensed racers at this level also will enjoy a simplified online renewal process to be introduced in coming weeks.


Pro/Sportsman and Sportsman licenses will be processed through NHRA’s Division offices.
