Motorcycling Australia (MA) Licence

All matters regarding MA National Licencing are managed by Motorcycling Australia (MA) and Motorcycling Australia Northern Territory (MANT) who can be contacted via the links below. Information is summarised on this page for Club Members’ convenience.

All DMCC events are governed by MANT who issue a permit to the club. In order to participate in any MANT permitted event, you are required to be the holder of a current MA Licence.

There are different MA licence types; DMCC events require riders to have an MA National Licence or an MA One Meeting Licence.

All MA National Licence applications are done online using the MA system Ridernet.

You need to meet certain criteria to obtain an MA licence – all conducted and managed through Ridernet online:

  • Club membership in the NT - you must be a member of a club prior to getting an MA licence
  • Proof of age (scanned copy of drivers licence etc.)
  • Ambulance insurance (policy number must be provided to MA)
  • First Time Licence Test (first time applicants only)

If you are a Senior (16+ years) and applying for an MA National Licence for the first time, you are required to complete the First Time Licence Test. This is a 25 question, multiple choice theory test and downloaded from the MANT website here.

An MA National Licence is valid for 12 months from the date of application.

An MA One Meeting Licence is purchased from the Club on the day at the meeting.

If you are a Junior (less than 16 years of age) and wish to obtain a One Meeting Licence, you must have completed a training course and received signoff within the last 12 months on the size bike you are racing.

 

Racing Numbers

Racing Numbers are nominated by the rider when applying for an MA National Licence and are allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. Racing numbers are not allocated by the DMCC. Your racing number will only apply to other NT Enduro events.

If purchasing a One Meeting Licence DMCC officials can recommend which racing numbers are available on the day.

Racing numbers should be displayed as per MA’s General Competition Rules (GCR’s)
