The Motorsport Australia Medical Standards were formed in conjunction with NMAC (National Medical Advisory Committee) and act as the framework for the minimum medical clearance required to get a licence.

Medical clearance is required for all licences, ranging from a basic health statement to a full medical examination. See below to find out what the minimum requirements are for your discipline.

Motorsport is an inherently dangerous activity which is why Motorsport Australia is committed to the safety of all competitors, volunteers and spectators who are passionate lovers of our sport.
