Competing Internationally

Motorcycling New Zealand handles the processing of any licences for any World Championships or any FIM sanctioned event held in New Zealand or Internationally.

For these Championship events, riders must be in possession of the correct FIM Licence and must present this licence and a "start permission" at the event's sign-on. You may be asked for this documentation prior to the event by the organisers or the country's motorcycling governing body.

If you are unsure, you will need to check with your particular event's organisers whether you require an FIM licence, and what type. 

For any other non-FIM sanctioned event that you wish to compete in overseas, you must have a Start Permission issued by MNZ.

You must hold a current MNZ Championship licence before applying for an FIM licence or a Start Permission. You must also have the appropriate insurance organised.

If at any stage you have any queries regarding this process please do not hesitate to contact the MNZ Office – email or phone 07 828 7852.
