Yes, you do need to get a licence, and our club can assist you with this.
Before being able to ride, each rider must successfully complete theoretical and practical components of a 'Kick Start Program'. This mandatory program ensures riders are competent in controlling a motorcycle and enables them to apply for an appropriate licence from Motorcycling NSW.
The kickstart manual (click on the button below) outlines all of the information you will need to learn to get involved in the sport of Minikhana and Motorcycling. Note: information subject to change periodically.
To obtain a Motorcycling NSW (MNSW) licence, all new riders must successfully complete theoretical and practical components of a Kick Start program. Kick Start programs are run by our club on selected practice days with advance notice to ensure there is a coach available (please check the club calendar).
You register for a kickstart by becoming a member on Ridernet, and buying a kickstart course along with the membership.
You must also be a member of an affiliated motorcycle club to obtain a MNSW licence.
Once a Kick Start program is successfully completed you will be provided with information on how to locate and complete the necessary MNSW licence application form, and instructions on how to submit your licence application along with relevant attachments and application fee.
Please note that MNSW can take around two weeks to process licence applications. Riding cannot commence without an appropriate and valid MNSW licence. If you complete a kickstart course at Hornsby Junior Dirt Bike Club the cost will be $30 kickstart course for the day.
A Mini-Recreational License or Junior Restricted Licence can also be purchased for the cost of $138. Please speak to the Race or Club Secretary on the day about this option. Licence fee, club membership and jersey are not included in this fee.

All Clubs need officials of some degree and motorcycling is no different. One of the key official positions required at our events are flag marshalls that help run the events to a safe standard. This is the beginners level of officiating and to ensure that we race to a high safety standard we like all our club members to be certified officials.
Below are some links to a training guide and small assessment you can do in your own time to become accredited as a motorcycling official. Simply read the presentation, answer the questionnaire and send it to Motorcycling NSW. They will mark and pass your exam and make you an accredited official so that you can help run events, it that easy and costs nothing!
