RS Clubman licences are required for passengers. Applicants for RS Clubman licences who answer yes to either medical questions, they will not be allowed to drive on the day, but they will be allowed to be a passenger on the day. For applicants answering yes, when Motorsport UK receives the application form, the medical team will assess the information and decide on suitability to drive. The applicant will then be contacted by Motorsport UK.
