All Motocross Licenced riders need to be with a Motocross Club, we have specific areas across the country with clubs, you need to contact your nearest club and ask them about membership, you can find a club via the following link:- FIND A CLUB. Your licence will not be activated until you have joined your club.
There are 2 different types of membership:-
1) Working Club Member - you join you club for a small fee and help out at work parties and provide a marshal for the day, most clubs run 2 events on average
2) Pay to Ride - You pay a higher fee and do not do anything, the higher fee is to help pay for workers and marshals in place of you
