The Motor Vehicles (Competitions and Trials) Regulations 1969 (amended) require that any motoring event utlising the Public Highway is subject to Authorisation under the legislation.

The Department for Transport has appointed the MSA to undertake Authorisations in England and Wales. This is handled by the MSA's Competition Authorisation Office (CAO).

In Scotland this fuction is carried out by the Royal Scottish Automobile Club.
