How to apply for a Trainers License:

Contact the local Horsemen’s representative at the track where you plan to take the test. That may be the HBPA, Horsemen’s Association, Racing Commission or the stewards. Be sure to ask for the requirements and testing procedure of the jurisdiction where you plan to take the test. There may be a registration fee that will be forfeited if you do not show up for your appointment.

Each state racing jurisdiction can have different trainer’s test. It is the goal of the Welfare and Safety of the Racehorse Summits to unify the exam process for all licenses. Currently there are many states that have adopted the Uniform National Trainers Test.

The Uniform National Trainers Test was developed after review the state trainers test and other educational materials. The test is comprised of six sections based on the Racing Commissioner’s International Uniform Model Rules, Racing Medication and Testing Consortium Veterinary regulations, the Racing Officials Accreditation Program Resource Guide, and individual local state regulations.
