MSVT - ARDS - Instructor

Thinking of becoming an ARDS instructor? MSV Trackdays now provides the ARDS Instructor Test which is essential for anyone looking to take their first step into becoming a race instructor.
This one day course will assess your circuit driving, but more importantly your ability to instruct others to become more effective drivers on track. The test also includes classroom and practical in-car sessions on instruction techniques and information specific to Junior race drivers.
A solid race history is required (please see requirements) along with a good knowledge of Motorsport and the MSA/ARDS licensing system as a whole. A high level of customer service, ability to communicate effectively and any other relevant coaching/instructing experience is also an advantage.
