Base Line Tests

  • All Jockeys need to complete a baseline test every two years. You will be notified in writing by the BHA medical department when your baseline test is due and needs to be booked.
  • The baseline testing will include:
    • SCAT 5
    • Cogsport
    • Pen and Paper Test
  • There is a network of regional testing centres (please see table below). You must bring photo ID with you.
  • The Jockey’s licence renewal will not be delayed in relation to a new concussion being carried out.
  • If you are unable to attend a booked baseline test, you must cancel your appointment by notifying the centre at least 24 hours in advance. Thereafter, all appointments will be charged to the Jockey at the full fee (£105.00).
  • Specify that the appointment is a Jockey Concussion Baseline test for the BHA when booking
