MSA national B license

Hi all,

Not sure this is the right place to ask but how easy is it to renew a national B license that has lapsed for a few years? I had a national B license in 2008 but haven't raced or renewed it since. Would I have to retake ARDS? I assume new medical would be needed.

Thanks

Ben.

depends on how old you are,

i have renewed my nat B after lapsing for a year and they didnt bat an eyelid, sent them my payment and my licence came in the post shortly after

Afaik if its lapsed more than 2 years you would need to retake the written test only ie the flags as mine ran out a few years ago and I looked into renewing but never got round to it!

yea, I think you should be fine, IIRC over 45 you need a current ECG

I think best thing to do would be to try to renew your licence online (i think you can do it, might have imagined that though)

i am the same, i have had my national B since 2008 and havent got round to using it but i keep paying the renewal fees just so i have it for when i do get round to racing

You dont need a ECG for a National B or a National A over 45 years.

ECG's both resting and stress types do not applly until you move up to applying for International Licence.

As has been said, no ECG. Your GP will simply take your BP, check the list of (whatever) is relevant at the time and sign it.
If you're (as I am) 'gifted' with alarming myopia, then you'll need an optician to verify that your corrected and peripheral vision is acceptable. There's a cost implication here.

correct vision (the wearing of glasses) can be assessed by your GP during your licence medical.

Prices vary from practice to practice 75 to 175

I rang the MSA the other day for this exact reason. If its been over 3 years you have to take the written test again. Between 3 & 9 you have to prove that you finished 6 or more races and take the written test again. Anything outside those and it's back to doing the ARDS test again. I went back to karting and didn't keep up my national b, it expired in 2003 and I now need to do my ARDS again
