Indoor circuits are often smaller and the surface is more slippery, so it is easier to drift and more precision is needed. Usually, outdoor circuits are wider and calculated to go faster, therefore the karts are not the same. The big advantage of indoor karting is that you don’t depend on the weather, whereas a responsible outdoor karting organizer won’t let you drive under a heavy rain.

Some clubs enable you to train on a simulator before going on the road, and there should be security speeches to explain everyone the difference between bumper cars and karts. Remember that just because you know how it works doesn’t mean everyone does, and other people can represent a great deal of danger on the road, so make sure these speeches are available. Also, full face helmets and seatbelts will be compulsory if the organization is responsible. Long hair should be tied and only closed shoes allowed.
