Come and Try
To host a Come & Try day at your club, you must be Affiliated with Motorcycling Victoria.
Come & Try days are designed to introduce new riders and families to the Sport.
To support this initiative Motorcycling Victoria offer our Clubs 2 x FREE Come and Try days each year, where we will waive the Permit fee and Rider Levies.
In addition to this we provide the Club who is hosting the event with Come & Try licences for all new riders.
Rider can then submit the supplied application form to Motorcycling Victoria to receive a FREE 3 Month Recreation Licence.
To support our clubs and get as many new people to the Day, we also have a range of template Promotional items for use to promote the event.
Keep in mind that when planning a Come & Try day at your club you will need to submit a Permit Application, at least 4 weeks prior to the event.
