To obtain your ACU licence and go racing you will need to complete this licence assessment. It spans across a late afternoon to evening. This is the licence needed to race with Road Racing clubs, attend ACU test days and can be used for most track days. 

Our circuit assessments include top instructors and good 'on-circuit time' to give you the best chance of passing to get your licence. You will get to practice, learn and enjoy riding with 4x15 minute on-circuit sessions and a fifth to practice your 'race start'! More than just a couple of laps! There are two stages to the assessment:


There will be a presentation of info by a top Clerk of the course followed by a multiple-choice test.


You must be able to demonstrate that you are a competent rider on circuit and that you can lap consistently in a safe and controlled manner amongst other traffic. You must be proficient in the areas below:

  • Basic machine craft - Can you ride a motorbike?
  • Using the track safely - Throttle control, use of brakes, gears, riding style.
  • Corner Speed and Exit - Hold a reasonable pace, use of lines, circuit rider awareness, obeying flags.
  • Practice Start - Go through the race start procedure. Grid position, sighting, warm-up, start!  

We have an excellent pass rate. If you you need some training on track prior to sitting your test, visit the Track Academy page of our website.

Once passed, you will be able to complete for your ACU race licence.


Download and bring with you on the day the ACU Road Race licence application form. Complete the form (except membership payment) including passport pic and eye test before the test. The on circuit assessment is on your bike. Bikes must be suitable for the intended use and subject to our usual track day requirements which can be found in our FAQ section. A motorbike licence is not required but you need good command of a motorbike. One-piece leathers are compulsory. The price for juniors (under 18) is £210 due to lower pupil to instructor ratios - and must call to book for under 18.
