To participate in events sanctioned by Motorcycling Australia (MA) you are required to hold a current MA licence. Your licence also covers you under the association’s Personal Accident Insurance policy while competing or travelling to the event. Further information can be found on the MSA website.
Types of Licences:
- Recreation Licence: Used for Ride Days only and can be bought on the day at the track. You can also buy a Annual Recreation licence from MSA if you ride a lot want to save time and a few bucks.
- One Event Licence: For Competions. They’re cheaper if you only race a few times a year. Apply for this licence on your entry form.
- National Licence: This annual licence can be used at any event in Australia. You can apply for a National Licence by submitting a form to MSA, or you can apply Online at Ridernet.
Online Licence Applications:
If you are applying for a National Licence online, you will need to have your Club Membership registered in Ridernet. Just tell us your Ridernet ID when you join the club and we will register you.
Note: the ‘Get a Club Membership’ page in Ridernet is NOT an official application to join our club. You must still complete our Online Membership Form to join or renew your membership in the Phoenix Club.
New Licence Applications:
Junior members must have completed their Kickstart or coaching and the coach must have logged them as having completed the appropriate course.
If you have medical insurance, make sure that it covers you for the cost of ambulance transport. If not, you must join an ambulance scheme as the cost of ambulance transportation is very expensive. In most cases, it is not covered by medicare and is not covered under the Motorcycling SA insurance.
It also is recommended that you check all your insurance policies to ensure that you are covered for racing your motorcycle rather than just riding it in a paddock or on the road.
There are a number of accident policies available to cover racing situations. It is recommended that you investigate insurance cover which will protect you from the loss of your earnings if you are injured.
