Officials & Marshals

There are various “Official” roles at trials for which we always need volunteers. They range from Marshals who monitor the progress of vehicles through the sections, Score Marshals who record each driver’s score to Clerks of the Course (CoC) who ensure everything is arranged / in place for an event to run & then oversee the day’s activities.

For RTV, TYRO & Timed Trial events & some CCV events we also need “layers out” who decide the route & mark out the competitive sections the day before a trial.

“Laying out” is usually carried out by more experienced drivers, but if you’re willing to learn, we can often put you alongside someone experienced to help them & learn at the same time.

If you’re willing to act as an official, but need to know more about what’s involved, please contact us via email to

If you’re ready to volunteer as an official at a trial, Thankyou !

You now need to “Sign-On” via the online submission below.

Pre COVID-19, this would have been carried out at the event, but to minimise COVID-19 risks & meet MsUK guidance, filling out of paperwork at events has been eliminated.

If you’re not sure if you’ll be competing OR acting as an Official, it’s not a problem for us if you submit a SOD form as a competitor AND a SOD form as an Official.

Please read the info at the top of the SODOFF form for any additional details ref site / event rules.

You should receive a brief email response from our system confirming receipt immediately.
