Why Join MROC?

Midland Rover Owners Club is a friendly, family orientated club for Land Rover owners & enthusiasts around the West Midlands. You can see the location of most of our off-road trials sites via the “What's On, Directions” page

It doesn’t cost a lot per year & it get’s you access to all of our activities. We have something happening every month. See the “Our Club", "FAQs", "Activities" & "Trialling" pages for more about what we do & the "What's On" or “Calendar” pages to get idea of what happens / when.

We have 3 levels of membership : Full, Family & Associate.
A Full member is the main or only member in a household that possesses a Land Rover.
An Associate Member is the main or only member in a household that does NOT possess a Land Rover.
A Family member is any other member associated with the Full or Associate Member living at the same address.
The Full or Associate member is the one who receives any correspondence from the Club.
Associate Members only differ by not having Right to serve as part of the Club organising Committee.

As a member (Full, Family or Associate) you can compete in our off-road TYRO, RTV or CCV trials - as a driver or passenger (even spectating is a great way to learn how capable all Land Rovers are off-road & if you’re willing to compete there’s always a lot of friendly advice available).

Members as young as 13 can enter TYRO trials & 15 or over RTV & CCV trials (subject to some additional conditions).

As a member you can come along to our camping / caravanning & Green laning events.

As a member, subject to having a suitable vehicle & training, you can also join our 4x4 Response Group.

As a well-established, very experienced club (in 2017 we celebrated our 50th Anniversary !), our events are safe, well planned & comply with all legislation / regulation requirements.

All members receive a copy of the Club Journal / Newsletter.

As a member of MROC, you can also take part in other ALRC club events without joining that club (you only need to pay any event specific fees & show your MROC Membership card)

Motor club members often get discounted car insurance (although we’d suggest always getting a quote before you tell them you are a member to be sure the discount is “real” !)

Try Before You Buy!

If you’re new to the Land Rover “scene” & as you need to be paid up club member to compete, we'd recommend you come along to our Social events, spectate at our off-road events or see what members are chatting about via our Facebook Group. All are possible without being a "paid-up" member.

It’s a good way to see what we do & whether it fits what you’d like to be involved in before you commit to join / spend any money !

Membership Costs

Our Membership Year is from 1st March until end of Feb. the following year. Whenever you join in the year, your initial membership will run until end of Feb. the following year.

Membership is only £30 per membership year for a Full or Associate Member (If joining between Jan. ~ Aug.) & reduces to £25 for subsequent years if you renew each year.
Renewal is due end of Feb. each year.

Family members (living at the same address) can join for £15 per membership year, reducing to £12.50 for subsequent renewals. NB Family members can also receive a Journal via email.

If you join between 1st Sept ~ end of Dec. cost reduces to £20 (Full) & £10 (Family) due to the shorter period until the end of our membership year. Subsequent renewal costs are as above.
NB We suggest NOT joining in Nov. or Dec., but to defer until Jan due to the limited membership period of only 3 months membership - unless you have specific need for immediate membership.
Likewise, if joining in mid August can be put off till Sept., you can save £10 & only lose a few days membership.

If you join between 1st Jan ~ end of Feb, we extend your membership until the end of Feb. the following year – giving you slightly more than 12 months membership.

If you want to Renew in subsequent years, we have a well proven Direct Debit payment option available to make payment easier & harder to forget !
