CADET & JUNIOR LICENCE
At South West Karting, we run a Cadet and Junior Licence Scheme, which helps the young children through learning how to drive the Karts, how to take the correct Racing Lines around our track and a few basic technical know-hows about the Karts. We run this alongside our usual Karting Sessions, so there is no extra cost involved.
Once the Cadet / Junior Licence has been obtained (usually after 4-10 Karting Sessions) it enables the Child to drive the Karts at the unrestricted speed and to enter our monthly Cadet and Junior Race events held at the track.
We also run a Cadet Club for the 8 – 11 year olds, which, once they have successfully obtained their licence, can be joined for a £40 annual fee. This then offers the following features:
- 20% discount on Arrive & Drive Sessions (Monday to Friday)
- £5 off the usual Cadet Grand Prix price
- FREE 10 minute A&D session on your Birthday
MEDALS AND TROPHIES AVAILABLE AT THE TRACK OR IN OUR E-SHOP
CADET & JUNIOR MORNING
Every Sunday morning*, we have this time allocated specifically for our Cadets and Juniors. Special pricing applies for the Cadets and Juniors at just £25, they then get 30 minutes worth of Karting (usually £35). This is run in 10 minute sessions, giving everyone a chance to rest in-between and check out their lap times.
Times are as follows:
Sundays 9.30am – 12pm (latest arrival 11.00am)
(*calling to check availability at Haynes is recommended)

If you have a child that is under 8 years, falls under the height restriction of 1.2m but is at least 6 years old, we do have a couple of side-by-side Twin Seater Karts that anyone over 18 years of age can drive, to give them a taste of the action.
We also have a tandem twin seater Kart that our marshals drive and they can provide fast thrill rides for passengers that want a real speed experience!
