Here's how to put your car on club plates
All you have to do is change over to the new Club Permit Scheme (CPS)
Permit fee (as by July 2015) is only $142.00 for 90 days usage per year or $73.00 for 45 days usage, compared with $700+ for normal registration.
Under the new scheme:-
- Vehicles can be used at any time for any purpose other than for the carriage of goods or passengers for hire or reward.
- A log book entry must be made each day that the vehicle is used (unless the vehicle is within 100 metres of the garaged address).
- The entry must be made PRIOR to the journey commencing.
- The logbook must be carried in the vehicle at all times the vehicle is in use.Apply for either a 45 or 90 day Permit.
- If you get a 45 day Permit and use up your 45 days you can get another 45 day Permit.
- You can’t drive your vehicle for more than 90 days in each 12 month period. Permits are issued for 12 month periods.
- Vehicles are issued with specific club permit plates and windscreen labels.
- VicRoads may suspend or cancel a permit if you become an unfinancial member or if your car becomes unsafe for use on public highways.
Which vehicles are eligible?
- Veteran – manufactured before 1 January 1919;
- Vintage – manufactured after 31 December 1918 and before 1 January 1931
- Classic and Historic vehicles - manufactured after 31 December 1930, but more than 25 years before the date of the application for a club permit.
- Includes cars, trailers, trucks, and some other modified vehicles such as street rods.
- Replicas of vehicles in the above mentioned categories may also be eligible
Putting your car onto Club Permit Scheme for the first time [see below for renewals]:

- You and your car will have to attend to at least ONE Motafrenz event per year
