FMB Europe Open license
You can subscribe to the FMB Europe Open annual license in the following disciplines: Motocross, Road Racing, supermoto, Classic Bike, Enduro, trial, speedway, Belgian Endurance-cross and E-bike.
All these licenses are of the ‘Europe Open’ type and allow participation in all competitions registered on the FMB calendar and the FIM Europe Open calendar (this calendar can be found on www.fim-europe.com – menu sport – choose your discipline – click on Open calendar at the bottom of the page.
The races in the Netherlands (ONK) and Germany (ADAC) are usually entered on the FIM Europe Open calendar. Please note in France this only applies to the bigger international events. French Championship or local races usually require a French FFM license. Competitions abroad but registered on the FMB sports calendar are of course always accessible with a FMB Europe Open annual license.
! Attention: participation with the FMB Europe Open license in competitions that are not registered on the FMB calendar, nor on the FIM Europe Open calendar (EMN no.), nor organized by the JMS / VLM, VJMO / MCLB and FPCNA Motocross federations, is not covered by this license. The rider will therefore not be insured against accidents and will participate at his own risk.
The FIM – FIM Europe license
If you want to participate in events of the FIM World Championship, the FIM Europe European Championship or FIM international races that are only registered on the FIM international calendar (and not on the FIM Europe Open calendar), choose after having ordered your FMB Europe Open license for an additional FIM WC, FIM Europe EC or FIM international license. The my FMB-BMB program will then automatically calculate the correct rate to pay for both licenses.
Please note : you cannot subscribe to a FIM / FIM Europe license without first applying for the FMB Europe open license.
Personal accident and travel assistance insurances
The FMB Europe license includes a personal accident insurance that covers you during the above-mentioned races as well as for free practices on circuits all over Europe. It also includes travel assistance insurance for medical costs abroad and repatriation costs.
For the FIM and FIM Europe license, additional FIM coverage is provided for the events registered on the FIM World Championship calendar, the FIM international calendar and the FIM Europe European Championship calendar (not for the Open calendar).
Option liability coverage
At the end of the application procedure in My FMB-BMB, there is the option to subscribe an extra Civil Liability (BA/RC) insurance valid during training on permanent circuit in Belgium, the Netherlands and France. This insurance covers the liability of the riders during training towards third parties (e.g. hitting a spectator next to the track). As a result, no ‘Pass circuit’ needs to be purchased from the FFM for the training courses in France. A specific certificate is delivered with the license.
! Please note: the KNMV does not recognize this option and requires its circuits to have the KNMV national license endorsed by the riders.
During competitions registered on the FMB calendar, the FIM Europe open calendar and FIM calendars, the Civil Liability of the participants is always covered by an insurance underwritten by the organizers / federations.
Have you had an accident? Then fill in the accident declaration form and send it to the secretariat of the FMWB (in case you have chosen a FMWB club or Motorsport Vlaanderen (in case you have chosen a club in Flanders) as soon as possible.

The following documents must be added to your My FMB-BMB file (see menu ‘documents’ in My FMB-BMB):

We recommend using this option, which will automatically and correctly fill in various fields. For foreign riders a copy of the passeport is also accepted (scan and added to My FMB-BMB)

Provide your doctor with the medical examination forms and the medical certificate.

- Riders’ release (annual and only riders living abroad). Riders residing abroad must apply for a riders’ release to the national federation of their place of residence. This is only required for the FMB Europe Open license and / or FIM / FIM Europe licence. Please note, various national federations charge an administrative fee for this.

An overview of the prices of the different licenses is available on the website of the FMWB (direct link) or Motorsport Vlaanderen (direct link).
