Student Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our students say:

I highly recommend studying with the National Motorsport Academy. It’s a great way to earn and learn at the same time, instead of submitting a few years of your life to study full-time at a University!
The course has met and exceeded my expectations. I did not realise I would using industry standard software on the course, obviously all the access is given to you and that is been excellent to learn.
The NMA opened the doors for me and allowed me to pursue a path I’m very passionate about. It not only provided the course and the content but also the possibility of working on a full-time race team!
