When do Apprentice and Conditional Jockeys turn fully Professional?

30 Jun 14

Apprentice and Conditional Licences are no longer valid either when they turn 26, or when the jockey has ridden out their claim, i.e. an Apprentice has ridden 95 winners and a Conditional 75.  Individuals will be required to apply for a full professional licence, either 6 months after riding out their claim, or at the end of the period for which their licence is valid, whichever comes first.
