National Socialist Motor Corps: “German: Nationalsozialistisches Kraftfahrkorps, NSKK”, was a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party that existed from 1931. to 1945. The group was a successor organization to the older National Socialist Automobile Corps, which had existed since the beginning of 1930. The National Socialist Motor Corps was the smallest of the Nazi Party organizations and had originally been formed as a motorized corps of the Sturmabteilung (SA) “Storm Detachment or Assault Division”. On the 20th of July 1934. the group had a membership of approximately 10.000. and was separated from the SA to become an independent organization. The primary aim of the NSKK was to educate its members in motoring skills. They were mainly trained in the operation and maintenance of high performance motorcycles and automobiles. Membership in the NSKK did not require any knowledge of automobiles and the group was known to accept persons for membership without drivers’ licenses. It was thought that it’s rigorous training scheme would make up for any previous lack of knowledge. The NSKK did, however, adhere to Nazi racial doctrine and screened its members for Aryan qualities. The NSKK was also a paramilitary organization with its own system of paramilitary ranks. From 1935. onward, the NSKK also provided training for Panzer crews of the German Army.
