Of course, we think that the best thing you can do with your license is to go racing. However, if you can’t go racing for some reason, you still get our other benefits. After you get an AFM license, you’ll get our email blasts, any special mailings, and a discounted subscription from Road racing World magazine. You also are a voting member. A request for a license fee refund must be received in writing and received prior to the last scheduled race event of the year.

The more experience you have the better off you will be as you will have a much better understanding of and appreciation for competing in a motorcycle race. Key factors that are essential are consistency and predictability gathered via participation at track days or via coaching. Decreasing lap times requires excellent control of braking, sustained momentum in corners and excellent throttle control on exits combined with an acute awareness of the riders around you and in front of you – and that means passing riders with care and diligence.
