I have read two different scenarios for applying for a NASA license while possessing an SCCA regional license:

From the NASA website: Read this section if you have: 1. A current or expired license from another org. 2. Hold a professional school certificate Please fax the following formation: 1. Completed Provisional License Application 2. A copy of your state driver's license 3. A copy of your racing license or school certificate 4. A copy of a Medical Form (from other orgs, ok) 5. A coversheet with a credit card number with expiration date.

And from the CCR:

14.1 Issuance of NASA Competition License NASA Competition Licenses are only issued from the NASA National Office, and are honored by all Regions. The National Office will evaluate each candidate on a case by case basis and may issue a Competition License providing that the license candidate meet one of the following sets of conditions:
14.1.2 SCCA or IMSA (PSR) license holders
Regional, National, Pro:
1. Submit a copy of their current SCCA or IMSA (PSR) license.
2. Submit a copy of their state driverís license.
3. Submit a copy of their last Physical Exam Form.
4. Submit the appropriate license fee.
5. Submit an Application for Competition License


So, do I apply for a provisional license, or do I go straight to a competition license?

I sent in my Novice permit from SCCA and they sent me the NASA sent me provisional license. I just have to put some Rs on the sides and rear and run a funny looking orange taped plate. Good to go.

I believe you can get a competition license when SCCA sends you your Regional license.

e-mail the licensing rep in your region. They are very helpful.

The Directors for our Division apparently don't answer emails.
Lee, call the National NASA office, they're very helpful.

If you have been actually racing with SCCA, and don't just have a rookie permit or a graduation certificate from a racing school, you will probably be issued a regular license. So, apply for the regular license, and at worst case you will get the rookie permit after evaluation.

We have not received any inquiries via emails on this subject, and I just saw this on my way to update a post we are running. A direct e-mail to us is the best way to get to NASA Florida if you want a quick answer. The e-mail address is nasafl@comcast.net

We also can help with questions by giving us a call at 239-549-3876

Why get second hand info? Go straight to the source: http://www.nasaproracing.com/aboutnasa/regions.html

Dave Ho in the National office is extremely helpful and can answer all your questions.
