For the 2016/17 Dirt Crit series, all participants must be MTBA members or have a day license. This includes all juniors. MTBA membership ensures all riders are covered for personal accident and public liability insurance (including when not at Dirt Crits).

In addition to MTBA insurance Dirt Crit fees are:
