Full race licence
If you are planning on taking part in a competitive bike race, there is a good chance that you will need to add on a full race licence while purchasing your membership, particularly if you are going to be doing road or track racing. You will also need a full race licence to earn points in any national or regional rankings.
As a general rule, the higher the standard of race, the more likely it is that you will need to buy a full race licence with your membership.
Provisional race licence
A provisional race licence comes free with all Race Gold, Race Silver and Race Bronze memberships and is enough to get you into most BMX, Cyclo-cross, cycle speedway and MTB races. To be sure, check with the event organiser beforehand (Please note: If you race on a provisional licence you will not be eligible for any licence points). If you are a Ride member you won't be riding competitively right now, so your membership does not include any type of race licence.
