The co-driver cannot drive the rally car if he holds just the co-drivers license.
Great info!!
Little curious here. Who is authorized to issue "Rally Driver's license"? what is the application process?

FMSCI is the organisation that can issue the license. You will have to fill in the form and get a doctor certificate and send along with the DD to them by post or hand over at their at chennai and you are supposed to get it in 2 weeks

Default Direction Navigator

Well! the navigator directs the way through out the travelling. It calculates the distances in km and the need is to set the destination point. Most probably , I use the car navigator that prompts me with instruction.

Jassi,

When travelling at 120 kmph + speeds, through relative unknown and unpredictable terrain, would you give up something which has an extra pair of eye, real time scanning and intepretation and instant communication capabilities.

Above everything else, would you give up your buddy, when you know that the "going is to be tough"

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

Ram

A navigator knows the track from the info/data, he is always calculating the speed and time in his head, he cannot see the track ahead directly otherwise he will miss out on reading the track course.
If he reads a corner as 'Medium 120 right into 3" Driver will do exactly and keep the car at 120kmph/mph shift to 3rd gear, and know that the corner is of medium bend.

Play a rally game (Colin Mcrae or somthing to actually understand how important it is to have a navigator, there's a reason he is there.
