MV Affiliation and procedure to get licenses


It’s official. OMCC are now affiliated with MV. This will allow you to get your competition licenses with OMCC as your registered club.

For those of you who are new to competing under the MA/MV arrangements and want to compete in upcoming VTS series starting at Ravenswood on Sunday 30th you will need to do the following:

  1. Create a Ridernet profile here:
  2. Email OMCC [email protected] and provide your:
    • Ridernet ID (6 digit code)
    • Date of birth
    • Surname
  3. We will add you as an OMCC member on the backend of the Ridernet system. You will get an email back saying “Club Registration Approved”. IMPORTANT: ignore the part where it asks you to pay for membership. This is a default and we can’t change it.
  4. You can then get your MV license now your profile is registered against a MV affiliated club. For trials, if that is all you are doing, you will need a Senior Restricted Licenses (Adults) or Junior Restricted License (Up to 16 Yrs).
    In the Ridernet system look for your name on the top right, and:
    • Select My Profile
    • Select Licenses
    • Add a License
    • Riding License
    • And choose the license appropriate to you and follow the rest of the steps.
  5. Once you have your license, you can enter the event here:
  6. Remember to have your license ready on the day as it does get checked at sign-on (PDF/screen shot of it on your phone is fine).

Good luck!

Glenmaggie 2023 Easter trial cancelled

Hello all,

Due to OMCCs current situation with insurance, we are still unable to run competitions. We continue to work with the governing bodies to sort this out however the pace is very slow and has not left us with enough runway to be certain about its resolution before we must commit to the Easter Trial.

After having over 100 riders at a trial in the 2022 Glenmaggie Easter trial we do appreciate there would have been some interest. Apologies to those disrupted by this however we wanted to leave people with enough notice to make alternative arrangements for Easter.

We have explored with the landowners the potential to run a two-day event at Glenmaggie later in the year and will update you if this happens. It is expected that OMCCs running of the Glenmaggie Easter trial will return in 2024.

16th Feb will be a general meeting. AGM date pending.


Way back in early November we moved the AGM out to Feb 16th thinking it would give us enough time to have all this insurance stuff sorted and be able to have an understanding on the impact to membership fees. Oh the naivety!

Although the club is open thanks to securing an ARMA policy, we don’t feel like this is a strategic solution. We have not yet got all the details from MA yet about a custom policy and so are unable to present any information to members.

We will be in touch with a date for the AGM as soon as we have all the inputs needed to make a decision.

Until then, we will make the 16th Feb at 8pm a general club meeting, members are welcome (and encouraged) to attend. Obviously there has been a lot going on behind the scenes and so if members want to come and ask questions of the committee, get an understanding of what has transpired over the last few months and provide feedback that would be welcome.

Hope to see you on Thursday.

OMCC to re-open for Social Riding Sunday 5th Feb


Great news!

Effective Sunday 5th Feb 2023 OMCC will resume its usual social riding operating hours (10am-3:30pm) and will be followed by Tuesday 7th Feb (10-2pm roughly) and Thursday Twilights on the 9th Feb.

Apologies about the delays but we have had several significant impacts to the resumption of activities that have been far less straight forward than our last update suggested.

Despite the speed bumps, we are pleased to announce we can re-open for social riding.

We have secured PI/PL insurance through ARMA and this protects the clubs and officials however it does not provide income and injury protection for the riders. Please bear this in mind as you will see we have had to update the clubs waiver and the sign-on forms will also reflect this as well.

Although it was always the case prior, we remind all members it’s a requirement to obtain your own ambulance cover/membership.

Here is a quick summary of the main options the club had been exploring (AMA, although not an option shown for reference):

 Protects the Club & OfficialsProtects the RidersCosts to rider
AMAIndividual $55 per year
Family $110 per year
MA/MV Standard Offering via Ride Parks Australia

$15 per ride

$30 per ride or
$15 per ride + a MA License

Given ARMA is currently the only viable option available to OMCC we have had to proceed however our attempts to resume under Motorcycling Australia/Victoria are still pending. The club looks forward to the continued working relationship with Peter Goddard and the MA delegates while we explore options more appropriate for OMCC which is dominated by social riding (>150 days per year) and as such the standard offering (150+ permits each year, $15/$30 rider fee each time) doesn’t really suit our situation. As we get more details on the costs and availability of a custom policy we will keep you posted.

There will be new QR codes at the club and previous QR codes and links to the old sign-on forms will be disabled.

An update on OMCCs ability to resume competitions will follow as soon as we have finalised details, but a priority is on resuming our clubs social riding.

I’d like to take the time to thank the committee who have lived through the ups and downs of the last few months. A special thank you needs to go out to Vice President Peter Spencer who has done significant work on this and has lost sleep on several occasions!

I’d also like to extend a thank you to our members who’s patience has been appreciated. Thank you for giving us the space to work through this and I am genuinely sorry it has taken this long.

I look forward to catching up with you all on the bikes down at the club.

OMCC Liability Waiver

Members please find below the clubs new liability waiver we have introduced as part of the resumption of activities under ARMA.



1. I HEREBY AGREE with Oakleigh Motorcycle Club Incorporated (‘OMCC’) that I am by this agreement entitled to participate in the motorcycle activity meeting identified in Schedule 2 (hereinafter called the Meeting’ or the °Event’) at the venue listed at Schedule 3 (hereinafter called ‘the Venue) on the terms and conditions set out in this document.

OMCC 2022 Wrap Up!


Well what a year. It’s turned out to be quite an unceremonious end to a cracking year at OMCC.  The key highlights include:

  • Our memberships continue to hover near club all-time highs
  • We have run our first, and likely last, AMA Vic Titles at Argyle (oh the rain!)
  • We’ve had our first 100+ entrants at trial in a number of years at Glenmaggie
  • The club has run a significant number of training days for both adults and juniors, as well as hosted interstate coaches Neil Price & Chris Bayles.
  • Tuesday 10am-2pm have been cemented in the calendar as a new opening day & proving very popular
  • We continue ongoing ground works and delivery of rocks, logs and soil.

Sadly, our plans to continue the summer series we scuppered due to the AMA issue. We also wave goodbye to our friends at Southern Trials Riders and we wish Geoff and Gary all the best and thank them for the efforts over the last couple of years.

Thanks for your patience over the last two months while we’ve dealt with the withdrawal of AMA as a governing body and suppliers of the club’s public liability insurance. It left an enormous hole that we have all felt including a number of other clubs across the country. There have been a number of factors that have driven this including ceilings on the amount of risk the insurance underwriters are willing to take. I am pleased to say we are underway with our replacement and working on the final touches now. Further communications will come once we know the financial impacts to members.

Over the last two months multiple members of the committee have been hard at work exploring all avenues to obtain Public Liability insurance from a range of brokers (as have a number of other clubs also impacted by the loss of AMA). We have also been speaking regularly with other states affected clubs so we are all connected. The unique nature of OMCC with having…

  • Its own club grounds
  • Practice/Social riding multiple times per week & being a dominant part of our members use of the club
  • Being an exclusive trials (low risk) discipline
  • Volunteer run (no paid employees) and not for profit
  • OMCC has had a fairly modest membership fee that hasn’t required “per ride” charges like MX parks.

…we felt a robust exploration of options was justified rather than taking the first option available. Sorry for the silence, but it’s taken time and we’ve been waiting for something meaningful before we communicated further.

The committee has decided in the last week that we will be reaffiliating with Motorcycling Victoria/Australia. We are exploring a custom policy arrangement which has required significant time to arrange as it’s not simply “off the shelf”. We are close to the final details and will share the changes to pricing structure this will cause to membership fees once it’s known.

We recognise a lot of our members are non-competitive, and so options for those who do not hold a competitive license are important in the final solution for our club.

There will likely be some flow down effects of this change including the use of Ridernet, training of club officials, and the expansion of First Aid training for officials and supervisors. The competitive calendar will be worked on shortly and OMCC will take part in the Victorian Trials Series.

We aim to resume social riding in January 2023 with more details to follow and to offset the lack of access to the club all 2022 memberships will be extended until March 2023.

Thanks again for your patience again and we wish all of you and your families a great Christmas break.

Regards, David Grice obo the OMCC Committee

AGM Postponed to Feb


As per previous discussion due to the state of insurance and the implication that will have on the club we had decided to postpone the AGM until Feb 16th 2023. We have already advised that the calendar remains tentative, but we felt it prudent to explicitly communicate about the AGM.

Formal announcement will come out closer to the time, along with any special resolutions required that may stem from our insurance impacts. 

We expect to have the club up & running much sooner than this, but this gives the committee time to get its ducks in a row so we can have something to present the members with.

Important update about OMCC temporary closure

Hello Members,

I am sorry to inform you that the club will be shutting due to the AMA insurance renewal issues effective immediately.

If you are not familiar, please see the email you would have received titled: “URGENT NOTICE FOR ALL AMA CLUB SPORT MEMBERS AND AMA SPORT AFFILIATES” from the AMA or click on this link.

You may have noticed, this has impacted a lot of motorcycle clubs of varying disciplines and it is not just an OMCC and trials specific issue. 

The committee has been working hard to provide some alternatives for liability insurance during  the AMA 6-8 week absence however there was nothing ‘off-the-shelf’ available to us. 

We are committed to exploring all options and hope to report back shortly with progress. 

Our sincerest apologies goes out to members and for now please treat the club calendar as tentative until our liability insurance issues are resolved.


David Grice & the OMCC Committee

AMA Update; Club open Sunday

Hello Members,

We’ve had confirmation from the AMA that their insurance has been extended a further day and so the club will be open as normal this Sunday. We remain uncertain on opening for the next 6-8 weeks so suggest you get down and enjoy it.

The committee has met this evening and are pursuing a couple of alternative options to keep the club functioning while the AMA are unavailable.

We will keep you updated as soon as we have something to share.

Regards, David OBO of the OMCC Committee
