A year-long competition license with the NTPA is a great value for pullers who intend to compete regularly at NTPA events, regardless of circuit level. A competition license bestows driving privileges at NTPA-sanctioned events to whom the license is assigned only. This license type enables a competitor to enter his or her vehicle in an NTPA-sanctioned class for which it qualifies, pull for available prize money, and be insured while on the track. Competitors must be at least 16 years of age, but those under the age of 18 must have either a parent’s or guardian’s written consent. All competition license holders receive insurance coverage, a printed copy of NTPA Pulling Rules, a competition license card, and NTPA shield patch(es) and decal(s).

With each Grand National or Regional National NTPA vehicle registration, two free crewperson licenses are assigned to a vehicle. Additional crewperson licenses are available for purchase through the NTPA office. Crewperson licenses do not have driving privileges under any circumstances but do have insurance coverage while crewing for NTPA-registered vehicles on the track. Crewpersons must be at least 14 years of age, but those under the age of 18 must have either a parent’s or guardian’s written consent. All crewperson license holders receive insurance coverage and a crewperson license card, however only paid crewpersons receive a NTPA shield patch(es) and decal(s).
