For trials, rallies, tours and driving tests you do not require a competition licence but you must be able to produce a VSCC membership card. Depending on the specific event regulations road licences may not be a requirement. The skills required for these events are a little different to what you may be used to when you first get started, but the best way to learn is to take part and learn from others.
RTA Licence for all road events. No specific competition requirements.
