    It all depends on what sort of racing license you are after. For doing things like hillclimbs etc you just pay your $$ and your pretty much off and running. For a full circuit license your best bet is to go through an accredited driving school like Ian Luff, Peter Finlay or John Bowe's and they can put you through an OLT - Observed License Test. You might want to do some of their high performance driving courses first to get you up to speed (so to speak).

    However the best way is to join a car club that's associated with motorsport or is CAMS affiliated and they can give you all of the help & info that you need.

    Hope this helps!

    Further to what gti138 said:

    The CAMS website is also pretty good for "how do I" stuff for potential competitors. www.cams.com.au

    For $44 you can get a L2NS that will let you do motorkhanas and some kinds of road events like Touring Assemblies and some Touring Road Events.

    $83 will get you a L2S which will let you do everything a L2NS does but also do hillclimbs, regularities, khanacross etc.

    The next step requires an OLT and is considerably more expensive - think hundreds of dollars.

    A L2S licence also lets you compete in car club super sprints (club days) at race circuits which are good fun. You do have to be a member of a CAMS affiliated car club before they will give you a licence.
