LICENCED TO RIDE
RENEWAL OF AMATEUR RIDERS’ PERMITS
Amateur Jockeys are reminded that Permits to ride expire on 30th June 2013. The Licensing Department of the British Horseracing Authority will be sending out renewal applications before the end of this month.
First time applicants and those renewing on every 5th anniversary of their first permit must submit a comprehensive medical report completed by the applicant’s own Doctor (GP or otherwise) who has access to the applicant’s full medical records. For those making a first application a medical report will not normally be required if such a report has been submitted in conjunction with an application for a Rider’s Qualification Certificate within the previous 12 months from the date on which the application for an Amateur Rider’s Permit is made. (Contact the Medical Department for any queries and for medical forms).
Any applicant for a permit aged 55 years or over must be examined annually as to his/her fitness to race ride by the Authority’s Chief Medical Adviser in addition to submitting the medical report completed by their own Doctor. Contact Helen Pavitt on 020 7152 0138 or firstname.lastname@example.org for clinic dates.
Please note that if you are due to complete a medical report you will also be expected to complete a baseline concussion test prior to the renewal of your Permit.
All Amateur Riders who have had 25 rides or more will be required to complete a further Baseline Concussion Test prior to submitting your application.
