ISSUING OF AMATEUR JOCKEYS LICENCES
Amateur jockey licences are due for renewal annually on 1st July. Amateur jockeys are asked to allow 2 weeks for the BHA to process all licence applications.
The BHA Licensing Department sympathise regarding licence costs, especially in the current economic climate. They have kindly agreed that all paperwork and medical forms can be submitted to them by 1st July annually, and that if it would be helpful to any individual amateur, the fee need not be paid until an amateur jockey’s next ride is confirmed, thereby having all paperwork in place within the BHA to assist with the speedy and efficient issuing of licences.
This process also negates any unnecessary expenses if a promised ride was not then forthcoming, and clearly is for the best interests of all amateur jockeys. The AJA are most grateful to the BHA for their co-operation.
