CCS License

Don't flame me for asking this and I know I'm still a noob to the track. But anyway I'm trying to see through something. Marr and me did the Race school at Gratten last week.
In the CCS Handbook for new riders it says that you need to take a written test to get the CCS license if you do your school with Team Chicago.
I asked CCS yesterday where and how you need to take the test. Now I'm totally lost and they don't reply anymore...

Subject: CCS License
Good Morning,

I’m interested in competing in some CCS races. I completed a Race school with Team Chicago, at Gratten last weekend. I noticed that it states that I will need to pass a written CCS Test, in order to get a CCS License. Where can I do this and how is this going to work?

Thank you very much

You can find the test on our website. You will need to take it and mail it in with your license application along with a copy of your school certificate.

Question: does anyone know where this test it? also by lurking around on the CCS site, it says you need to take the test at the track...
SO.... Test on the web, which you do at home ( ???) or test on the track?

Thanks

I did mine with Learning Curves, and we had the test during the class. They make it sound like you just print out the test, take it at home, and submit it along with your license application.

I looked on the CCS site, but I couldn't find the dam test anywhere.

Thanks for looking. I spend like 2,5 hours yesterday on the page trying to find it.

But wouldn't it defed the purpose of a test, if you print it, fill it out and send it in? That made me wonder a bit.

Bring your certificate to a ccs race and also the money it cost for the license. They recognize Team Chicago school as a legit school just liek Learning curves. You will pick a # out and have your ameture license

I thought it was the last pages of the New Rider packet. but I just checked and thats not the case.
But.... The New Rider Packet does say:
"If you have attended a school that is
not listed above, you may still be
issued a license upon successful com-
pletion of an open book written test.
Call us at 817–246-1127 and ask for
Ginger for more information."

That only works if they're paying attention to the flags to begin with.

Well corners are being issued new equipment this year to combat riders who dont follow flags or instructions. Gatlin paintball guns with 500rnds/sec rate of fire. Dont do as you are instructed, you get painted.

they just want you to know the right answers. they don't care how you get them...

as for your question, there's a number at the bottom of the email. just call ginger - i'm assuming she knows more than any of us at this point

good luck and sorry 'bout the crash. as for the 6 weeks, that's in normal person time. in racer time, it sounds like you'll be down for about 3

All I did was give them my Team Chicago certificate, and took the written test at the track the same day I registered for my first races. They just want you to read the rule book and understand the rules so it'd make sense if they just let you fill the test out and mail it in.

So you probably don't recall anyone telling you "good job, great bump, now don't go out and get sucked in and ride over your head."

Toss me another one if you'd be so kind. This is fun.

Beers on me next time.

every once in a while I have a special kind amnesia... like this morning when I thought what is that stuff on my leg...

And I think I timed my "getting done for the weekend" perfectly. I belive I only got passed once in that session and that was the S1000RR after the straight...
Now I can dream for the next few weeks that I'm fast and what not, until reality kicks back in.

True I should do that on the next few weeks, since I have some time to kill. The doc says its a pretty important part of the bone and needs to heal well. He didn't know if we should go with a six or eight week cast thing... great.

I'd loved to get out with you on sunday and learn some stuff, but I guess it should't have happen...

Sorry to hear about your off (again).

I'll be kind and not toss a grenade at you for misspelling "important" as impotant, along with "bone" in the same sentence.

Although I will hang out on a limb and say that perhaps having an impotent bone will make you less aggressive on the track.
