In conjunction with all State Controlling Bodies (SBCs), Motorcycling Australia (MA) have restructured certain licencing groups, brought about by the changing trend in the type of competition members are participating in. MA & SCBs appreciate the valued feedback members have provided in relation to licencing.
One event competition licences have been the focus of the review, specifically the One Meeting Competition licence (7 & Over) and Senior One Meeting National Competition licence (16 & Over). The aim of the review has been to streamline the licencing structure and in turn reduce the overall cost.
The volume of riders purchasing 'One Meeting Competition' and 'Senior One Meeting National' licences means by combining the structure and values of both licences MA have eliminated the need for two different one event licences.
The decision to combine the two licences and formulate a new, all encompassing 'One Event Competition' licence that provides the benefits of both licences was made by the respective boards and is now offered to members at the set rate of $75.00.
The newly revised 'One Event Competition' licence, combines all of the eligibilities of the now, amalgamated licences. The 'One Event Competition' licence now covers riders for eligibility in; Practice, Coaching, Recreation events, Club and Inter-Club events and National/ Open events. The One Event Competition licence offers a fantastic amount of flexibility for members to better suit their specific competition licencing requirements at a reasonable rate.
