The National Racing Compact Board has provided authorization to move forward with the creation of a new online licensing portal.  In partnership with a local web development company, the National Racing Compact will begin the process of creating a new web platform during the 2021 calendar year with hopes of a possible fourth quarter launch. This improved system will allow licensees to apply for a National Racing License, add and pay for new states, and manage their existing National Racing License.

Outside of the one-time fingerprint requirement, the new system will automate the entire process and make managing and paying for state racing licenses fast and streamlined.

The National Racing Compact is a national licensing program that was formed in 2000 and is accepted in 26 jurisdictions, including Arizona, Arkansas, California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

The purpose of the Compact is to ease the regulatory burden for qualifying licensees who race in multiple states. More information is available at
