What is the Annual Waiver?
The signing of the Release and Waiver is a pre-condition to participating in the event, and the signer acknowledges the potential hazards present, and by signing, waives and releases certain legal rights to sue for negligence. Members need to be allowed the opportunity and time to read and understand this document before signing in front of a witness and entering the restricted area. The Release and Waiver provided by K&K Insurance Group, Inc. is the only acceptable form to use. It is part of the SCCA policy and must be completed properly to be of any value in a court case. The Release is a legal contract between you and any person permitted to enter the restricted area during a scheduled event. To properly complete the per event waiver: 1. The first line at the top must show the type of event, location (track name) and the date of the event. 2. In the multiple line area with words “I have read this release” any and all persons permitted to enter a restricted area during a scheduled event must print and sign their own legal name. 3. The witness representing the insured must sign their name and enter their title on the bottom line.
Explain the Adult Annual Waiver Forms required by different states.
As of January 2018, SCCA Members ages 18+ residing in the United States are eligible to sign the Official/Notary Form Annual Waiver 1306 which must be either witnessed by an SCCA Official or a Notary Public. California residents obtaining a notary public signature must sign the CA Annual Waiver.
Is the Annual Waiver required?
No, the Annual Waiver is not a requirement for adult members. However, all event attendees are required to sign the EVENT Waiver. Those with an Annual Waiver on file for that calendar year may be exempt from signing the EVENT Waiver. The Annual Waiver - Minors is a requirement for competitors and workers in hot areas who are under the age of majority which varies by State, but is typically the age of 18.
Who is eligible to sign an Annual Waiver?
The Annual Waiver is available to SCCA Members ages 18+ or age of majority based on State of residency. Annual Waivers are good through December 31 of the current calendar year.
What is the term for the Annual Waiver and will I have to sign Event Waivers?
The Annual Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement is valid through December 31 of the current calendar year. If a member has an Annual Waiver on file, they may be able to bypass signing an Event Waiver at various SCCA events across the United States. Some facilities may require an Event Waiver to be signed by all participants, regardless of Annual Waiver.
Who is eligible to witness a member's signature as an SCCA Official?
An SCCA Member in good standing who serves in an official capacity for the SCCA Region may witness an SCCA member's signature, however, they should not be related biologically or by marriage. i.e. spouses should not witness each other's signatures and parents should not witness a son or daughter's signature. This includes but is not limited to a Region Executive, Registrar, Waiver Chief, Event Chair, Chief Steward and Safety Official.
Where can I see if I have a valid Annual Waiver on file?
Annual Waivers and Minor Waivers will display in the "My Licenses" section.
I want to get my Annual Waiver prior to my first January event, when can I sign this?
Annual Waivers can be signed upto 90 days in advance (after October 1) for the following year. For example, a member that signs for the 2020 season can do so as early as October 1, 2019, as long as the form is dated for the 2020 calendar year. Annual Waivers signed prior to this date will only be accepted for the current year.

Who is required to have a Minor Waiver form on file?
Minors participating must be an SCCA Member and if participating in any program within SCCA as a Driver, Worker, Crew Member or Passenger, are required to have a Minor Waiver on file at the SCCA National Office prior to participation.
Which Minor Waiver form do I use?
Determination of the proper form is based on the State of Residency for the Minor and his/her parents. Residents of all states, except California and Florida, use Minor Waiver Official form or Minor Waiver Notary form. It's a matter of convenience and access. For individuals who don't have access to an SCCA Official to witness their signature, they can choose to utilize the Notary Public form. IMPORTANT: The type of form used has no effect on the minor's ability to participate.
If you reside in California...
Residents of California (minors and parents) must use Minor Waiver CA Notary or Minor Waiver Notary 1068
If you reside in Florida...
Residents of Florida (minors and parents) not participating at a permanent race track must use Minor Waiver FL Notary 1895. Residents of Florida participating at a permanent race track must use Minor Waiver Notary 1068 or Minor Waiver SCCA Official 1068.
What is the difference between the Notary waivers or the Official waivers?
It's a matter of convenience and access. For individuals who don't have access to an SCCA Official to witness their signature, they can choose to utilize the Notary Public form. The type of form used has no effect on the minor's ability to participate.
Who can sign as a parent for the Minor?
This is a legally binding agreement which must be executed by the legally recognized parents or guardians of said minor. Sole Custody requires signature by sole guardian only. Joint Custody requires signature by each legal guardian. Both parental signatures do not need to be on the same document. For example, Parent A can sign before a Notary Public and Parent B can sign before an SCCA Official and combine the forms to be submitted together. Signing the Waiver as a guardian indicates that you are the legal guardian of said minor and have the authority to grant said consent. Submitting a Minor Waiver with one parent/guardian signature indicates that you are the sole custodian of said Minor. Falsifying documents is a crime and can be punishable in a court of law.
Do I have to complete every space on the Minor Waiver Form?
Only if you want it to be accepted! Forms must be fully executed as follows: printed in COLOR, completed Calendar Year on the top right, both parents must sign, print names and date the forms (unless sole custody), parental signatures must be witnessed by an SCCA Official or Notary Public. The name and age of the Minor participant must be on the form. The Minor must sign, date, print name and include SCCA Member ID and Minor's age, which must also be witnessed by an SCCA Official who must sign, print name and indicate their SCCA Member ID. Notary Publics must complete the sworn to location as city and state.
Where do I send the Minor Waiver form?
The Minor Waiver form must be sent to the National Office as follows: original, printed in color and properly executed mailed to the SCCA National Office at 6620 SE Dwight St., Topeka, KS 66619.
I'm bringing my kids to the event to watch, do I need a Minor Waiver on file for them?
No, Minors as spectators do not need to have a Minor Waiver Form completed. Minors who do not have a Minor Waiver on file will have restricted access at events.
How do we validate the age of a Minor?
If the Minor does not have a State issued driver's license, you may ask the parent or guardian to compete the Minor Age Affidavit
