Starting in 2006, anyone participating in the Drift Mania Championships series must possess a DM Competition License.

Acquiring a DM license is a simple process that involves participating in a practice event held by Drift Mania or an approved drifting organization. During this practice event, the applicant will be tested and juged, and if deemed fit for competition, will be issued a DM License, otherwise known as a "hardcard."

Please read the following rules for more information. These rules can also be found in the Official Drift Mania rule book.
