Any one have the answers for the online quiz? I know nothing of the behaviour of mini bike parents.

What in particular do you want to know?

Parents can't protest the rider junior rider has to indicate by raising the purple flag before leaving the course.

There is also a chance the questions will change slightly each time you do the test.  The answers will be in the MoMS.  Is there a time limit for doing the test.

The test is only for first timers or if you let your licence lapse more than 12 months

Thanks guys for your advice . Always a good source here. I finally got through it but it took me more goes than I counted. I had to answer against what I thought. Yes there is a MOMS but it's 350 pages not light reading. I was stuck at 90% just could not get my head around the code of conduct BS. How some 7 year old is responsible for his asshole parents is beyond me. Or how that question makes me safer on the track ? 
Why I can buy endless one license in 3 min with no test but need to spend well over one hour to get a yearly?

Technically you are supposed to do the test before being issued a One Event Licence. No one ever does though.

The Junior rider is responsible for the actions of the parents (and crew members) etc because an official can not penalise the parent, but the rider can be because they have a licence.  Most officials try to avoid using this because really they don't want to penalise the kid.  They usually warn the parent first but sometimes they don't have a choice.  I always remember a case where at an Australian Junior Championship the older brother of a rider abused an official.  The younger brother was excluded.  While I wasn't there myself if something similar occurred to me (as an official) I would of asked the younger rider to ask his brother to leave.  If he didn't as he was also a licenced rider I would of penalised him in some way (maybe a fine).  It is hard for a junior to be responsible for the actions of others, but as I said sometimes that is the only choice.  Also please note this also applies to the crew of a Senior rider.  So it isn't just juniors.

Hard to get it right.
My parents thought mini bike racing was as dumb as a box of hammers. Because it was all I wanted to do, they would reluctantly supply a bike, and drop me at the track. My father never washed a bike of mine, nor worked on one without me helping. (As I'd be doing that particular job by myself next time.)
I consider myself very fortunate (But would have loved a little enthusiasm)

A while back, while doing my usual trick of being the oldest, slowest rider, having the most fun at a club MX day, the teenager pitted near by was actually crying, whilst pleading with his father that "I just want to ride for fun". The father was deaf to it. Replying that "finishing 3rd in the next race would secure his place in the championship".

I was lucky.
I'm still "Only riding for fun".
