You just need a race ready vehicle, which can be your own car, or rented, (My friend Dave loaned me his RX7 in trade for some auto repair work and services I had provided him in the last 10 months.) then you have to enter an SCCA Race School. The requirement is two SCCA run schools, or you can also substitute one approved "private school" like Skip Barber, or Bertil Roos etc.

IF the SCCA stewards sign off on your schools as "ready to compete", you will get a novice permit.

That gets you into any "regional" races, as a novice. After 2 "safe" regional events, you can apply for a "regional license" and after 4 more events, you can apply for a "national license".

the difference is mainly that you cannot run in a national event on only a regional license.

You can find more info on the SCCA website.

Its also a good idea to read a book
