From the 1st October, 2009, all BMX licenses will be sent out directly to member’s home addresses. In the past, the process for licences has been for your local BMX club to send the licence directly to BMX Australia for processing and then after it has left the office, the licence was sent to the state office and then the club. This process was delaying licences being sent to members in a timely fashion.
The BMX Australia office’s aim is to supply members with a new licence as quick as possible. We believe the new process will ensure licences will be sent out to members with a lot more speed and efficiency.
One of the benefits of purchasing a membership with BMX Australia is insurance. The Insurance details below explain the insurance coverage and clears up some misconceptions within the BMX Community.
Personal Accident Insurance
Coverage applies to members who are involved in sanctioned BMXA activities. These activities include official events, organised training, fundraising activities and travel to and from these activities. Information regarding membership categories can be obtained by visiting aciclovir pommade
