Immediate medical and extrication facilities at the scene of an incident


Rescue & Recovery Crews


Rescue personnel provide immediate medical and extrication facilities at the scene of an incident. They move around venues aboard Rescue Units, which are kitted out with the latest medical and extrication equipment.

Recovery personnel retrieve stricken rally cars, operating from Recovery Units fitted with vehicle recovery equipment.


Rescue and Recovery personnel must be a minimum of 18 years old to begin training.

All training for Rescue and Recovery personnel is carried out via a modular programme, supported by organised training days where specific skills can be honed.

Full licence holders are required to meet ongoing training requirements and must complete the required assessment every three years.

Getting started

To obtain a Trainee licence you will first need to gain the support of a current Motorsport UK-registered Unit and then complete the Motorsport UK’s New Officials Registration form, which must be returned to the Membership Services Team with a supporting letter from the Unit operator.

You will then be sent your Trainee Licence and the relevant Training Module.

Further documentation can be found under the Officials > Rescue/Recovery section of the Resource Centre
