Becoming a DLRA accredited official is the best way of getting close to the action without being in the drivers seat.
Our accredited officials are a vital part of land speed racing and without them the sport could not function.

Accredited officials ensure that Speed Week is conducted safely, fairly and that the rules and regulations are upheld. Every Speed Week requires around 45 accredited officials with various skills to perform a wide range of tasks.
Plus for Speed Week there are over 400 other casual volunteer positions.

There are many interesting roles that accredited officials fulfill at Speed Week and that you could become involved in regardless of your skill set.

The DLRA Accredited Officials Program will provide you with the training. New officials start off with a DLRA Trainee Licence, and are teamed with experienced accredited officials and learn how to do most things on the job. As accredited officials gain more experience and begin to take on more responsibilities, they will be given the opportunity to upgrade their Licence and branch out into other areas of officiating. From time to time the DLRA also runs various training courses for the different categories of officials.



Anyone with a general interest in land speed racing can become an accredited official. Minimum age restrictions apply for some roles and activities and there are also supervision requirements for the different grades of accredited officials.



Attending Speed Week will help you work out which discipline of the sport you would like to become involved in. The only problem is that Speed Week is only once a year and takes place in the remote outback of South Australia. The information below may help you decide where you would like to get started.
