All Competition License holders are Competition Members of the Club and
are entitled to voting rights and all privileges of membership.
Memberships are not transferable.

The AFM offers Single Event Licenses for those interested in racing only one or two events with the Club. 
A Single Event license gives you the opportunity to race with the AFM for a weekend and the license expires once the race weekend is over.

MINOR Reciprocity License
The AFM offers reciprocity to license holders from other approved motorcycle roadracing organizations.
Reciprocity license holders will NOT receive or accrue points, either in class or overall. 
They may appear on results/standings prior to the season-end final standings but are not eligible for season-end championships or contingency awards. 
Reciprocity license holders may upgrade to a Competition License prior to July 1, 2021.

MINOR Worker License 
A safe raceday requires lots of volunteers. Some of the hardest-working volunteers are the AFM Course Workers.
The AFM Course Worker Crew is one of the best motorcycle racetrack working groups around.

Minor riders are required to have at lease one (1) parent be an AFM Member in good standing,
