2012 DOMESTIC LICENCE APPLICATION & MEMBERSHIP FORM
BikeNZ issues Race Licences for Road and Track racing which are valid for one calendar year.
A BikeNZ Race Licence allows you to compete in most road, track and mountain bike events run by an affiliated Club or Centre, or
sanctioned by BikeNZ Road & Track (BR&T), BikeNZ or Mountain Bike NZ (MTBNZ). Note: You may need a clearance from your club and
in some instances, e.g. National Championships, you may also need to be a financial member of the Member Organisation holding the
Championships. Ensure you check the specific event’s licence requirements.
You cannot use a BikeNZ licence to compete in BMX events. For details on licences for BMX, contact BMX NZ on email@example.com
YOUR MEMBER ORGANISATION
You must select BR&T as your Member Organisation. Completion of this form records your agreement to be a member of your chosen
Member Organisation. This is the organisation with whom your licence is held, and you are bound by its constitution, rules and regulations.
In most cases, your affiliated club will determine your Member Organisation. However there are a number of clubs that are affiliated to both
BR&T and MTBNZ. If you have any queries regarding this, please talk with your club.
RACE LICENCE TYPES
There are four types of race licences available: Club (BR&T only), Centre (BR&T Only), National and International, and, as the names
suggest, each licence allows you to race in the different levels of competition. Please note for Junior U15 or U17 riders the ONLY licence
type available are national licences.
You must be a financial member of an affiliated club to be eligible for a racing licence. See www.bikenz.org.nz for details on affiliated clubs.
You are able to upgrade throughout the year by paying the difference in fees. Contact BikeNZ for further information.
Please note this is the domestic licence form. If you require an international licence please go to www.bikenz.org.nz and download the
international licence form.
A Technical Licence caters for Commissaires, Coaches, Managers, Mechanics and Soigneurs and allows licence holders to attend Club,
Centre, National and International Events in an official capacity. For BR&T members, technical endorsements on domestic racing licences
are free. If you don’t hold a race licence, your technical licence will attract the published fee of $30.
Your Licence Category states which category you compete in, and in most cases, is determined by your age. There are circumstances,
however, which allow you to compete outside your normal category. Contact your club for further details.
Where you use your licence with another Member Organisation, your category may vary according to the category structure.

Please submit this application and all relevant fees (including Club and Centre Fees) to your Club. Do not post to BikeNZ unless you are
applying for either a Technical Licence, or an International Licence Upgrade. It may take up to four weeks from the time your club
