The Victoria club permit scheme allows members of car clubs that are recognised by Vicroads to make limited use of classic / historic vehicles on the road network.
The Monaro Club of Victoria (MCOV) is a Vicroad’s approved club.
From Feb 2011, the scheme was changed to a log-book system which the members must administrate themselves. A logbook is issued to the permit holders to record the use of the vehicle over the permit period. The log book entry must be made EACH DAY that the vehicle is used (unless the vehicle is within 100 meters of the garaged address).
A log-book must be carried in the vehicle at all times the vehicle is in use.
From Feb 2015 further changes have been made.
When signing new club permit applications, club safety officers/scrutineers will be required to complete a Vehicle Eligibility and Standards Declaration form declaring that the vehicle is eligible, safe for use on the road and that it meets the applicable requirements for the category of vehicle for which the club permit is sought.
Initial club permit applications (not renewals) for vehicles manufactured after 31 December 1948 will need to be accompanied by a current certificate of roadworthiness. Our club requires RWC for all vehicles.
Initial club permit applications (not renewals) will need to be accompanied with a document of proof of ownership or management of the vehicle.
All post 1969 Vehicles must comply with Vehicle standards information 8 (VSI8) which only allows basic modifications. All vehicles outside these standards require a Vehicle Assessment Signatory Scheme (VASS) approval certificate covering the modifications.
An "M" plate club permit will be issued to identify modified vehicles where a VASS certificate has been provided.
Clubs are required to maintain dated photographs of vehicles entering the club permit scheme in accordance with the new Club Permit Agreement.
Financial members of Vicroad’s approved clubs (i.e. MCOV) are able to apply for a 45 or 90 day permit depending on how much use they expect to make of their vehicles over the 12 month period.
If a person obtains a 45 day permit, but then 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 a vehicle for more than 90 days in each 12 month registration period.
Your car must be over 25 years old and roadworthy. You must be a financial member of the MCOV. The car must be built by General Motors, such as a Holden, Chev, etc. Monaros can be placed straight on to a Club Permit. For other GM cars, you have to be a member of MCOV for at least 12 months to be eligible for a Club Permit.
If you currently have a car that you would like to move to the CPS, you must follow these steps:
When the 12 months of your Club Permit is about to expire, you should receive a Renewal Notice from VicRoads. Please don’t wait until the last days to get it signed - send it straight away.
The renewal form, like the original application form, has to be signed by the MCOV Club Plate Officer BEFORE it can be presented to Vicroads for payment. To renew, follow these steps;
Members must ensure that their Club Plated vehicle is only used for private use and is not used for commercial use. One example of commerical use would be hiring out your vehicle as a wedding car.
