How to apply for an Agents Licence 

To apply for a Jockey Agent Licence, applicants should submit an application having read the Guidance Notes in full. Once an application is submitted, a member of the Licensing Team will be in touch to outline next steps.  

As a minimum for consideration, applicants will have to satisfy the BHA that they have an in-depth knowledge of Racing’s aims and standards and that they are suitably capable of completing the tasks required of a Jockey Agent. In almost all cases, applicants will be expected to shadow a current Jockey Agent to obtain a reference in relation to this  

Further information can be found in the documents below, including the guidance notes. If you have any further queries, please contact the Licensing Team directly.
