Competition Licence/Trial Registration
A Competition Licence (or Registration in the case of
Trials) is required by every rider and passenger participating in any
competition held under the National Sporting Code of the ACU.
It is the responsibility of the competitor, or in the case
of minors the parent or legal guardian, to ensure that their licence is valid
and issued for the correct class. The issuing of a licence does not guarantee
an entry into, or acceptance into, any competition.
All licences are valid from 1 January
to 31 December of the year
of issue. Licence
fees are non-refundable.
Duplicate ACU licences can be obtained on request at a
cost of £5.00. Duplicate FIM/FIME licences can be obtained through the ACU at
the appropriate fee.
One Event Licences
A One Event Licence (OEL), sometimes referred to as a Day Licence, grants all the benefits of an annual
licence for the duration of one named event only.
The Supplementary Regulations for the event will state
whether this type of licence can be used.
One Event Licences are valid only for adult and youth
riders in the undermentioned events:
- Motocross, Supermoto and Enduro events up to and including
- Grass Track,
Sprint, Drag and Hillclimb
events below National Status.
Note: One Event Licences are not issued for Road
who have not previously held an ACU competition licence or for those competitors who have not held an ACU
competition licence for a period of three years, a one
event licence may be submitted with an application for an ACU competition
licence to receive a £10.00 credit on the purchase of an ACU competition
licence within six months of the purchase of the one event licence
in any calendar year period.
The credit cannot be carried over from one year to the next.
It should be noted that only
one One Event Licence can be used to offset the cost of an annual ACU
competition licence. It is the overall responsibility of the Clerk
of the Course to ensure that all One Event Licence counterfoils are
returned to ACU Head Office within 14 days of the event being completed.
Although it is recognised this task may be delegated, the responsibility for ensuring this happens remains with the
Clerk of the Course.
One Event Trials Licences
To encourage non-ACU Trials Registered Riders to attend
ACU Trials events, One Event Trials Registrations are now available from ACU Head
Office. Riders taking out one event Trials licences will hopefully join an ACU
Club, take out a full Trials Registration and become an ACU Trials Registered
The cost of the One Event Trials Registration is £3.00.
The One Event Trials Registrations are available in books of ten, i.e.. £30.00
for a book. It should be noted by Organisers that the One Event Trials
Registrations won’t be available for purchase individually – only in books of
ten. Organising Clubs are to pay for the books at the point of purchase, i.e..
there is no credit facility. Once the books are sold, the Club keep the money
to recoup the expenditure they outlaid at the point of purchase.
To summarise – The books themselves consist of ten one
event Trials Registration forms. There are no counterfoil or copies of the
Registration forms – just ten Registrations. The Club buys the book in advance
for £30.00, sells the Registrations at £3.00 each and keeps the money to
reimburse their initial outlay. There is nothing to send back to ACU Head
Office, no money and no counterfoils of the Registrations sold.
