Non-Competitive $30 (all Coaching is Non-Competitive)
Attending Coaching for the first time
As our events are run in accordance with Motorcycling Australia rules, all riders who wish to compete in a competitive motorcycle event must have completed their initial 5 hours of “Kickstart” coaching (including the written assessment) and have a Motorcycling Australia ‘log book’ issued to them. Completing Kickstart and having a MWA Log Book is also required when applying for one day competitive license.
An accredited coach will run through the basic requirements to go racing and help you complete the questionnaire provided so you can apply for your Logbook.
Completing Kickstart is not necessary for 50cc Div 1 Demo Class, our Non Competitive Trail Class or non competitive events.
Renewing Your Coaching
Riders are only required to complete coaching / assessment when they move up to a larger bike capacity. This is referred to as a Competency Based Assessment. Once you have been assessed and deemed competent for that capacity bike, annual competency assessments are not required when renewing the license for the same capacity bike.
All Competency Based Assessments and official coaching must be carried out under a permit issued by Motorcycling WA and be signed off by an Accredited Coach.
We encourage all riders to attend regular coaching sessions, as it will develop your skills and make you a faster and safer rider.
What you now need to do is :
Ask Motorcycling WA (9371 5333) to forward you a Kickstart Manual or pick one up at the next event. This manual has the Coaching & Riding Test Assessment, and the Multiple Choice Theory Test. (Kickstart Booklets are available at our Offroad Riding Events).
Once you have completed five hours of coaching ask one of the coaches to “sign off” on the Coaching and Theory Test.
Forward your completed assessments to Motorcycling WA. Once you have your assessments signed off, you can apply for a One Event or Annual Competition Licence. You need to send off your Test and Coaching Assessment with the Log Book Application Form.
Motorcycling WA will then send you your own personal Log Book. Your Log Book is your record of all events you have participated in, Coaching, Injuries and much more.
You must bring your log book with you to every event, and present it at Registration.
This ruling has been introduced for the benefit and safety of the sport.
It can sometimes slow the registration process at events and even prohibit some riders from riding competitively. In the long run it will lead to a safer and more enjoyable sport.
Enjoy your racing!
