Club Permit Plates

So, what is the Club Permit Scheme?

Also referred to as Club Plates, or Heritage Plates, the scheme allows members of vehicle clubs recognised by VicRoads to make limited use of Historic vehicles (for cars over 25 years) on the road network.

Members of the RRCV are eligible for this scheme; gaining the advantage of a reduced registration fee with reduced driving time. At August 2018 these are 90 days permits for $150.40 and 45 days permits for $77.80 per year.

These represent a significant discount in the usual $800+ registration fee, however you must fill out a log book every time you drive the vehicle, and if you are caught not doing so you are deemed to be driving an unregistered vehicle, which as several implications, including no insurance etc.

See the VicRoads website for further eligibility details and requirements. https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/registration/limited-use-permits/club-permit-scheme/get-a-club-permit

What can go wrong?

    • Leaving things to the last minute - Allow a couple of weeks to get all the paper work done – our team are all volunteers and want to help but it’s difficult if you leave it to the last minute.
    • RWC expires before you can get the car checked – Speak to the scrutineer before you get the RWC organised to arrange a time to meet – they may be away or busy with work. A RWC lasts 30 days and have a cost associated with them.
    • The name on the form isn’t the member of the club - Remember that the car owner must be a RRCV member; it cannot be the partner of a member - the VicRoads registration must be the same as the membership information; however, we can re-organise your membership on our database for you.
    • Relying on old information - The VicRoads rules change so don’t rely on our information – check the VicRoads website for up-to-date information
    • Don’t post docs to the Club PO Box – It only gets checked once or twice a month – your time sensitive documents may go into a black hole! Contact one of the Club Officials directly or Club Permit Officer for advice.
