There are two main types of membership: Full Member and Junior Member, for those people who under 18 years old.  Subscriptions are due immediately an application for membership is accepted by the Society.  From then on, annual subscriptions are due from 1st January each year.

There is a third type of membership: Full or Junior Members may apply for a rebate and become a Rebated Member. Rebated Members are allowed to handle and ride at the Society's shows, but no other entitlements as listed above.

Applications for membership need to be in writing as members have to accept the Memorandum of Association, Articles and the Code of Conduct of the Society. Members also have to agree that personal information needs to be held by the Society in order to operate as a Passport Issuing Organisation, but can request restrictions on the information that other members can access from the on-line database.
