Club car permit? VL

Hey all,

Don't have time to search threads but just need a quick answer. What's the go with club car permit?

All I know is its cheaper and it's 90 days of driving and u need to be in a club? So is being on CT being in a club?

Also can u keep ur plates and just use the sticker.

P.s calling vic roads is not as easy as it seems! D*ckheads keep hanging up and can't get through

i spoke to my neighbour about this the other day as he has a club permit number plate- dont know if this is 100% correct though but he said he gets 3 months in a year to drive the car and he has a logbook to fill in every single time he drives with kms etc as if a cop pulls you over they will ask for that- you also cant keep ur exisiting plates as u need the permit ones saying CLUB PERMIT but im pretty sure u dont have to be in a 'club' to have them if u got anymore questions about it pm me and ill go and ask him for more info

Lol if u find the rite club then there's no Rwc required and no need to take the car to Vic roads, yes u are rite in the 90 day permit but u can get a 45 day permit also.. 45 days for $75 and 90 days for $150, u do need to keep a log book, also some clubs require u to attend meets and cruises but if u shop around there's some out there that have an event that goes for a year so in a technicality there is no meets and cruises.... For more info pm me but some times info isn't for free

Wow. A bit of misinformation here(and in other threads) A quick search would have actually shown relevant results however.

I am currently going through this process.

$67.60 for 45 days, can get another 45 for $65.10. This is cheaper than getting the 90 days for $132.80.

-No refunds and can not have more than 90 days under any circumstances.

-Cars must conform to the Vicroads VSI standards, including no spools, locked diffs, nitrous system in the car at all, even if disconnected etc.

- No more than 20% higher power than original, unless certified by a VASS Signatory

-Roll cages must be VASS certified.

-RWC depends on the club you join. If you aren't required to get a RWC, you will probably have to put your car over the club's pits anyway.

-You must be a member of a club to get club plates, no exceptions.

-The club plates must be displayed, not your original plates.

A list of approved clubs can be found here: http://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/NR/rd...onsNov2012.pdf

http://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/Home/...lubPermits.htm

Quote:
The Victorian club permit scheme allows members of car clubs (including motorcycle, trailer/caravan and machinery clubs) that are recognised by VicRoads to make limited use of historic vehicles on the road network.

A club permit can be issued to the following vehicles in the following categories:

Veteran vehicles – manufactured before 1 January 1919;
Vintage vehicles – 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.
These categories can include trailers and modified vehicles such as street rods. Vehicles which are replicas of vehicles in the above-mentioned categories may also be issued with a club permit.

Club permits are issued for 12 month periods and vehicles are issued with specific club permit plate(s).




From 1 February 2011, new conditions of use for club permit vehicles apply.

Under the new conditions of use, permit holders are no longer restricted to club sanctioned activities when using their vehicles. Club Permit vehicles can be used at any time for any purpose other than for the carriage of goods or passengers for hire or reward.

A logbook is issued to permit holders to record the use of the vehicle over the permit period. 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).

A logbook must be carried in the vehicle, or on the rider in the case of motorcycles, at all times the vehicle is in use.

Financial members of VicRoads’ approved clubs are able to apply for either a 45 or 90 day permit depending on how much use they expect to make of their vehicles over a 12 month period. If a person obtains a 45 day permit but later decides that this is not enough, another 45 day permit may be purchased later on.

However, no-one will be able to obtain a permit to drive their vehicle for more than 90 days in each 12 month registration period.


Other features of the new scheme include:

A windscreen label will be issued to assist in identifying vehicles operating with a current permit;
VicRoads may suspend or cancel a permit if the permit holder fails to comply with the permit conditions or engages in conduct which threatens public safety or undermines the integrity of the permit scheme;
Clubs are required to sign an agreement with VicRoads that they meet certain obligations including that they notify VicRoads if they become aware or reasonably suspect a pattern of incorrect use of a logbook by a member. If this is not done, VicRoads will be able to revoke the club’s approval to be part of the scheme.
Club permit holders already on the scheme prior to 1 February 2011 have been issued with a free 90 day transitional logbook. The transitional logbook will be able to be used until the current permit expires. The logbook is valid until the permit expiry date and allows use up to a maximum of 90 days prior to the expiry date.

Permit holders operating with the transitional logbook are not issued with a windscreen label or log book certificate sticker until the current permit is renewed after 1 February 2011.


Applying for a club permit
To apply for a Club permit you will need to complete a Club Permit Application form together with:


written verification by the club secretary (or person authorised by VicRoads) that the applicant for the club permit is a member of the car club
in the case of a club historic vehicle that is not a street rod, a current certificate of roadworthiness or a letter from a scrutineer authorised by the club, stating that the vehicle is safe for use on the road
in the case an application made in respect of a street rod, that is a vehicle modified in excess of the level prescribed in the Vehicle Standards Information No.8. (VSI8) document [PDF, 279 KB, 8pp.], a Street Rod Inspection certificate issued by any VASS Signatory [DOC. 1113KB, 7pp]
Club Permit fee - refer to Permits (Club, Rally and Unregistered Vehicle Permits)

Refunds
Refunds are not available for Club Permits if the period for which the permit was obtained has commenced.


Number plates
If you submit your Club Permit application at one of the following VicRoads Customer Service Centres, you will receive your number plates on the spot. If you go to any other Customer Service Centre you will have to wait for the delivery of your number plates. Custom plates cannot be issued to a vehicle on the Club Permit Scheme.

lol, no.
I'm not sure why but people think club reg is a free ticket to unlimited mods without the possibility of getting caught.

It's absolutely no different to normal rego rules.

It's only just less chance of getting done is what I believe cos the cops think oh he has club permit so means he doesn't drive much etc, but I'm sure if they see a VL they will be prks, and if ur out on Friday nights there is no chance this club permit will be a free ticket.

I just wanna know what club I can join that doesn't involve getting a RWC.

My car club (200 members) had 20 members with letters from police demanding vehicle inspections. I'd say club permits are more of a magnet than normal rego.

You either need a RWC or the club inspector to go over it... and they're not going to pass an illegal or unroadworthy car that puts every other club rego'd car in their club under scruitiny.

Your vehicle must conform with the Vicroads VSI guide, or be VASS certified.

Here is a link to relevant areas of the VSI that your car needs to either meet or be VASS certified:

Good luck getting in to a club on the premises of wanting cheap rego and not having to get a RWC. IT is most certainly not in the spirit of the system

Jase if you want a highly modified car to pass rego you're gonna have a bad time.

A lot of older cars try for club reg that have been sitting in the shed for years only to find they need brakes, suspension bushes and heaps of other work to get up to spec... it's not a free for all registration without needing to be road worthy.

It just takes one car to flout the rules and everyone in that club will get scruitinised. The clubs are risking themselves if they pass stuff like that.

My club had an almost drag car torana come in and ask for club reg... they laughed and told him that it would never get any sort of rego.
