DLRA Accredited Officials

Officiating Program


The DLRA Officiating Program was established for the grading, licensing, training and recognition of volunteer land speed racing officials.

The purpose of the Officiating Program is to:

  • Ensure that land speed racing officials are highly skilled
  • Provide knowledge of roles and rules
  • Demonstrate ethical performance of duties
  • Foster personal pride and a respect for the sport
  • Provide efficient management
  • Achieve local, national and international recognition


TRAINING UNDER THE Officiating Program

DLRA provides a number of training courses and programs to accredit volunteer officials under the Officiating Program. This ensures officials have the correct knowledge and skill set required for the role they perform.

The Officiating Program also provides the framework for the structure and grading of officials' licenses and the process of obtaining, maintaining and renewing a DLRA Officials' Licence.
