If you compete, but don’t currently hold a licence you will need to apply for this. These changes will affect Autotests, Trials, Cross Country, Road Rallying, 12 Cars Rlaiies and Scatters. Passengers, navigators and bouncers will also now be required to hold an RS Clubman licence. MSUK state the RS Clubman licence can be applied for free, online from 18 November. Concerned? Confused ?-Get in touch with the club you compete with ASAP.

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the website of the Model A Ford Club of Great Britain (MAFCGB).
The Club caters for owners, prospective owners, enthusiasts and devotees of the Ford Model A, AF, AA, B, BF and BB built from 1927 to 1934.
We provide help and information as well as being the British network for exchange of knowledge, assistance and spare parts for these vehicles.
Our award winning magazine "Quail", published every two months, has articles, letters, for sale/wants adverts and technical tips.
We organise events and tours which provide a sociable, friendly atmosphere focused around historic cars; all the family are welcome.
Moreover the Club is a member of the Inter-Register Club (IRC) so all our members can participate in the IRC events nationwide. The IRC events are for pre-war vehicles and form a framework of social driving days with a lighthearted, mildly competitive element. See the events page for the list for this year.
The Club is listed with the DVLA as an Authorised Club and offers a dating, authentication and certification service which is recognised by the DVLA.
And we can help with details of cars and provide help for those researching the history of their vehicles.
We are affiliated to the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs .
