Club Permit Scheme

S4WDCV is registered with VicRoads as part of the Club Permit Scheme (CPS). This scheme enables vehicles older than 25 years to qualify for reduced registration charges, subject to conditions set out by VicRoads, eg vehicles can’t be used for commercial purposes, or for more than 45 or 90 days (optional).  A logbook has to be kept.

The reason the club is involved in this scheme is to continue to see and enjoy older vehicles still in use, rather than being disposed of due to age and cost. The club has determined that it is to be dealt with separately from the process of joining the club. Once you have been a member for at least six months, the option becomes available. The club has to approve the application and this involves a vehicle inspection by the club safety officer and a RWC. Talk to the Membership officer FIRST before getting a RWC, as they expire after 30 days and the procedure may not be completed in that time frame.

Permit holders agree to bring their vehicles to at least two events annually, so others can enjoy seeing them. Each year, the club needs to approve renewal of the vehicles. If a member leaves the club, or becomes un-financial for more than a month, or the vehicle is sold, the permit ceases.

Full details are set out in the club’s CPS policy, available as a By-Law to the Constitution (see page 39).
