The K1 Speed Annual License

Membership Card

If you’re looking for information about our K1 Speed Annual License, you’ve come to the right place!


Can I Race at K1 Speed Without an Annual License?


An Annual License is required to race at K1 Speed. While most go kart places charge for an annual license that gets you next to nothing, K1 Speed’s Annual License gives you perks you’ll actually want to use. The only other option is to book a group event which will not require the license for any racing during the event, but will require a license if they wish to race outside of the event.


Here’s What the K1 Speed Annual License Includes:


  • One FREE BIRTHDAY RACE* during the week of your birthday! (ID required) – a $24+ Value!
  • FREE use of our helmets
  • One FREE reusable headsock (additional headsocks available for purchase)
  • 10% off apparel & accessories (excludes K1 RaceGear and sale items)
  • Access to your racing score online
  • Storing of your racing history in our database
  • Emails with special offers


How Much Does the K1 Speed Annual License Cost?


The cost of a K1 Speed Annual License is only $7.95 and you get all of the above! As you can see, you’ll get one free race within the week of your birthday – that’s over $24 in value alone! Not to mention the great discounts you’ll enjoy on apparel and accessories. You can get that $7.95 back in savings during just one visit!


The Annual License is good for one full year from date of purchase. If your license has expired, you’ll be able to renew it for another $7.95 when you purchase your next race.


Not sure when if your license has expired? Simply call your local K1 Speed and ask! Our cashiers will be happy to look up that information for you.


So pick up your K1 Speed Annual License and save big during your next visit!

**Free Birthday Race may be used within 1 week of your birth date. 1 per customer per calendar year.  ID required. Requires a current license and a race package purchase within the previous 365 days. If this is your first-ever visit to a K1 Speed, you can redeem the free birthday race after purchase of our license and a race package. 

  • Jonah

    Hi on the back of the membership card it says access to your racing score live online

  • Evan Murphy

    How do I purchase a annual membership

    • Staff writer

      An annual membership is available at your local K1 Speed for purchase. If your first time, please register first, then see the cashier to purchase membership and races.

  • Melissa DeLeon

    Will the annual membership charge my card automatically when the year ends?

    • Staff Writer

      No. You will need to renew after your annual membership has expired. When visiting your local K1 Speed center, please ask the cashier about your expiration date. See you on the track!

  • Vanessa Torres

    Do purchased races expired after certain months if they are not used?

    • Staff Writer

      Your purchased races never expire and are good at any U.S. K1 Speed center.

  • Denise

    How do you check to see if your membership is current?

    • Staff Writer

      Please call or visit your local K1 Speed center. A team member will be able to assist you with your request.

  • Deion Manley

    What if I have a membership and I want to get more races

    • Staff Writer

      Deion, it’s just a matter of either stepping in to a K1 Speed location and purchasing races there or by choosing your location here on our site, choose “Get Pricing” and then choose whatever package you’d like! Just note, if you purchase races online, you’ll have to redeem them within 30 days – you don’t have to race all your races within 30 days, you just need to stop into your location and have our cashier redeem them into your account. Hope this answers your question – see you at the track!

  • William McDaniel

    How can I see how many races I have left cause I haven’t used my races that I have left I want to make sure I have some left to use

    • Staff Writer

      Hello William! Just call up your nearest K1 Speed and ask! They’ll be able to pull up your account and see how many races you have left.

  • Andrew

    If I were to loose my membership card dose it cost a fee to get a new one.

    • K1 Speed Staff Writer

      There is no replacement fee. Just go to the cashier and have them look up your account and they can issue you a new card. If your annual membership has expired, there is a $6 fee to renew.

  • Garrett Pasour

    So you have to spend more money to race again even with the membership

    • Staff Writer

      Garrett, you are correct. The membership provides tons of amazing benefits, but complementary races are not one of those at this time.

  • Don Ford

    hi, i’m planning on taking my daughter to the k1 speed location here in portland this coming saturday the 11th of may. this is her birthday. if we do the membership signup on that day will she be able to receive the birthday race on that day or will she have to wait until next year??? just wondering.

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, Don! Thanks for your interest in K1 Speed! Yes, if you pay for her membership, she’ll be entitled to the free race that day. Have a great time out there!

  • Jarius Myers

    I have a question do you get unlimited races when you pay for the membership or you just get the benefits and pay for the races?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, Jarius! Thanks for asking – the membership provides the benefits, but does not include any races (aside from the free race during your birthday month). Hope that clears things up for you. See you at the track!

  • James

    Can your k1 membership be used as a group entry?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello James! Each membership is only good for the member it has been assigned to. One membership cannot be used for an entire group to race – each group member will need their own individual membership. Hope this clears up any confusion!

  • Jay limas

    What if I lost my card

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Jay! No worries – we can look you up in the system without your card. Hope this helps and we see you at the track soon!

  • Aman Sharma

    I want to get a membership on my birthday because I am going with my friends on that day. Would I be able to get my free race that day or would I have to come back another time?

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Aman! You’d need to have raced with us at least once before we’re able to give you that free race. So as soon as you race with us, we’ll give you that free race during your birthday month. Hope this clears things up!

  • Dylan Hupp

    I have signed into the mobile app. However none of my past races are on there. How do I get the app and my membership card and history connected?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Dylan! Sounds like you accidentally created a duplicate account – simply stop in to your local K1 Speed and the manager will be happy to assist you with merging your past history to your app account. See you at the track!

  • Stefani Hatfield

    I’m going with a group this Friday, never been before, but it’s my birthday month. Will I be able to receive my free race the day of?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Stefani! Typically, this deal is for existing members. They receive an email letting them know they have a free race during the week of their birthday. This is shown to claim the free race. We can make the exception for first-time racers, but we just ask that you purchase a race first (think of it as a BOGO offer). So yes, if you purchase a membership and race you’ll receive a second race for free. Hope this clears that up and that we see you this Friday!

  • Hunter Silva

    Do I have to pay for membership even if I bring my own DOT helmet and will most likely never come back as its 5 hrs away from my house , I dont need the discounts and dont really feel $10 is worth for my stats on 3 races one time ? This is the only go kart place i have seen that makes you pay to then pay to race

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Hunter! Thanks for your interest in K1 Speed! Yes, like a lot of other karting places, the annual membership is mandatory to race at any of our locations. Keep in mind the membership provides you with a free race during the week of your birthday, which is an over $20 deal in itself. Hope we’ll see you soon!

  • Jay

    Hello, if I wanted to take someone to K1 to race, would I have to purchase two individual arrive and drives? Also, would I need a membership to pay to engage in other activities outside of the races?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Jay! Yes, you are correct: you would need to purchase two Arrive & Drive race packages if you have two people who want to drive. While you need an annual membership to race, you do not need a membership to enjoy the other amenities at our locations, such as our in-store dining and arcade options. Hope we’ll see you soon!

  • Jose de la Cruz

    How can we renew online and purchase races?

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Jose! Simply visit the page of the location you want to visit and click “Pricing” or the “Buy Races Now” banner. The only way to purchase a membership is by selecting our Speedpass, which gets you the membership, two races, and a t-shirt. If you just want to buy races, simply select a 1, 2, or 3-race package. Once purchased, visit your location, show the cashier your emailed order confirmation, and they’ll redeem your purchase. Hope we’ll see you soon!

  • Mohamed Hamza

    I had a membership k1 speed card
    I got it for my birthday gift

    Some one stole it

    I was wondering can you canceled it

    I was wondering if you guys can send me a new one

    • K1 Speed Staff Writer

      Sorry to hear your Membership card was stolen. There is no need to worry though. We keep track of your membership in our system. On your next visit, just tell the cashier you lost your card and we can replace it for you if it is still within your membership terms.

  • Le’Aja

    would you guys prefer the annual membership or pay for the cost of the rides per hours

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Le’Aja!

      The Annual Membership is required to race at K1 Speed. Once you have the membership, you’ll then pay for your experience, which is sold per race, not hour. Hope this answers your question. See you at the track!

  • George Thomson

    If I want to be dropped off at a location can I add races onto my card through your website?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello George! You can purchase races online before heading out. Then you just have to show our cashier the emailed order confirmation so they can add those races to your account. However, if you don’t have a membership already, you’ll need to purchase one at the track (unless you buy a Speedpass). Hope this helps!

  • Janine Ortizano

    If I were to purchase an annual membership, would I be able to bring guests? Or do all of them have to have a membership?

    • Staff Writer

      Hey, Janine! Everyone that wants to race needs to have their own membership. Thanks for your interest, and hope we’ll see you all at our track soon!

  • Paisley Blume

    Can I just buy a membership on the K1 speed website? I live 3 hours away, so coming in is a little difficult.

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Paisley! Yes, you’ll get an annual membership if you order one of our Speedpasses online. In addition to the membership, our Speedpass includes 2 races and a t-shirt at a steep discount over retail cost. Just select your nearest location from the “Buy Races” drop-down menu here: https://www.k1speed.com/arrive-and-drive.html . Hope this helps!

  • Jaila

    My birthday is coming up soon and I had a question about the free race. Is the free race just for me or will my friends be able to join the race as well.

    • K1 Speed Staff Writer

      Hey Jaila!
      Your freinds can definitely join you in the race – you would not be the only person out on the track. But to celebrate your birthday, your race is the only one that is free. Hope to see you soon!

  • Alex Baez

    If I bought a membership for my little cousin and he didn’t like it can I transfer the race he had left over my account or to his older brother?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Alex! Please get in touch with the management at your local K1 Speed for assistance with this. Thanks!

  • Tokyo

    How much do I have to pay for 2 races if I have the membership?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello! Prices can vary by location. Please find your nearest location by visiting this page: Locations Once you see the location you want to visit, just click on the “Pricing” button to the right! See you at the track!

  • Bronwen Gleeson

    If I purchase a gift card for my grandson can the amount of that card be split between two people?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Bronwen! Yes, our gift cards are just like cash at our center. So it can be used as a payment for anything by anyone. Thanks for your interest in K1 Speed! You’re an awesome grandparent – we’re sure your grandson’s going to love it!

  • Roselyn

    Is there a way i can book online and pay in cash if other people are going to pay their own way for a party

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Roselyn, please call our group sales department at 1-855-517-7333 – they’d be more than happy to answer that for you!

  • Eti Velez

    Does my k1 speed membership work at every location

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Eti! Yes, your K1 Speed Membership will work at every U.S. location – just show your physical membership card when you visit so we can look you up. Thanks!

  • Maya

    If I don’t have a membership, do I have to buy a speed pass online in order to race? Or can I buy 3 races online and purchase the membership for $7 when I get to the K1 location?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Maya! You’re correct – you can buy the 3 race package online and purchase the $7 membership in store. You don’t have to purchase the Speedpass to get the membership. We look forward to seeing you!

  • Dolores Guzman

    I paid for 2 memberships. 1 for myself 1 for my husband. How do I put his in his name?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Dolores! Your local K1 Speed can help get that set up for you. See you at the track!

  • Chris

    So can you not use your free birthday race another week after?

    • Staff Writer

      Hey, Chris! The free birthday race is intended to be used on your birthday itself, but we do give you a little wiggle room – just needs to be used the week of your birthday. Thanks!

  • Ann

    Hi There,

    I misplaced my membership card. Is there a way to get a replacement one or do I have to pay the membership fee again?

    • Staff Writer

      Hi, Ann! It’s okay, we’ll still have your account on file. Our cashier will just ask you for your name and date of birth so we can look it up on our computer. Hope to see you soon!

  • Chris Fisher

    I’d like to see my score record, only thing you guys have listed is a place to see the leaderboard scores for the week and month.

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, Chris! That is something we used to have up until recently when we switched over to a brand-new timing and scoring system. While the public leaderboard is temporarily unavailable, please know this is something we are working on to bring back. Thanks for your patience!

  • Dafne

    How do I apply for the membership online?

    • Staff Writer

      Hi, Dafne! Our memberships are only processed in our centers, not online. Sorry for any inconvenience!

  • Shijun (John) Wu

    Can I cancel my membership subscription?

    • Staff Writer

      Hey John! Our memberships aren’t subscriptions, just a one-time fee that gives you access for the year.

  • Cherie Chapski

    Hello –

    I would like to buy some races ahead of time online. Is there a way to pay the membership fee on line at the same time? Thanks!

    • Staff Writer

      Hi, Cherie! That’s an excellent question. At the moment, the only way to purchase a membership online is through our Speedpass, as it comes included in that package. Hope this helps answer your question and that we’ll see you at our track soon!

  • John Green

    If I have a membership and I have not purchased a race yet and I want a free birthday race can I purchase one race and use the birthday race on the same day?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, John! Yes, you’ll just need to purchase at least one race before you can redeem the free birthday race that day. See you at the track!

  • john jacob jingleheimer schmidt

    What if my id doesn’t show my birthday? Can I bring a birth certificate?

    • Staff Writer

      Yes, a birth certificate plus a photo ID will work if your ID doesn’t have a birth date on it.

  • Miguel A Villanueva

    I bought a membership in Orlando and I live in Puerto Rico. I ask for the membership, can I use it in Puerto Rico?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, Miguel! Great question. Yes, just bring your physical membership card with you to Puerto Rico when you visit. That way it proves you do have a membership with us and they’ll give you a membership that will work there. Thanks!

  • Chelly

    Hello. I want to buy 2 of the gift packages that have the merchandise, 2 free arrive and drives and plus the license which has the birthday race. If I buy it for my partner and I, will he be able to race 3 free arrive and drives for his birthday week on the same day?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, Chelly! Yes, he would be able to enjoy the two arrive & drive races that come included in our Gift Tin, and enjoy a third race for free since it’s during the week of his birthday. See you at the track!

  • Hannah Champagne

    Hi! I want to bring my boyfriend here two days after his birthday and neither of us has raced here before. If I buy the “speedpass package” right now, does that give him the free birthday race for when we walk in for his birthday? OR do we have to go in day-of and sign up? I want to make sure I have all the information correct!

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, Hannah! Yes, that would give him the free birthday race, since you will have purchased a membership and a race package as part of the Speedpass. You can either order it online or at the store – up to you! Thanks for taking your boyfriend to our track – we look forward to seeing you both!

  • Kristin H

    Does the membership work at all locations?

    • Staff Writer

      Yes, the US K1 Speed License works at all US locations. See you at the track!
