Whatever they are, they are definitely not NPEA instructors.

Most likely civilian security guards at a military installation.

I believe NSKK looks like the Kepi has the NSKK rocker on the eagle.

I think the waffenfarbe is Yellow which I think is Signal.

Thank you, shamirnewell. I was thinking NSKK but the light color kepi is a new one on me.
Cheers,
Max

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Samuel
The extra strip on each shoulder straps looks to be bright tresse which would show he was an aspiring Officer candidate. At that moment he was a Feldwebel.

Cheers, Ian.

No; it's clearly not Tresse material, but simply light-colored (apparently white) cloth. Also, officer candidate's Tresse was to be worn near the bottom of the shoulder boards,not in the center.

The cloth loops seen here are either worn to temporarily cover up the unit cyphers for security reasons, or to identify the wearers' unit. (Simple cloth loops in various colors were used for such identification purposes in the field and officially authorized by an OKH order of 15 Jan. 1943.)

What is the SS-Uniform in this 1935 Heinrich Hoffmann photo from NARA (perhaps an SS Motor-Sport group)?

Really it's a coverall.
The picture shows a SS-Motoreinheiten unit.

Thanks, von Thoma! I know it’s a coverall, but I've never seen rank-insignia, cufftitle, shoulderboard & chevron on a coverall before.
