Differences between an International Licence and a UCI ID
An International Licence is an identity document that confirms that a person is allowed to participate in UCI sanctioned events. This licence is valid for one year, from 1 January to 31 December and needs to be renewed each year to be valid.
A UCI ID is a unique 11 digit number that will remain with the person throughout their cycling life - whether as a rider or as an official. The UCI ID enables the UCI to track rider results and rankings, or officials' reports and training. While the UCI ID will remain with the person for life, it is only valid for one year, from 1 January to 31 December and needs to be renewed with the national federation of the country of a person’s main residence each year to be valid.
