club permit scheme - MMCCV Inc
What is the Club Permit Scheme?
VicRoads will allow vehicles that are 25-50 years old to be on the road for a reduced fee. However these vehicles can only be driven on the road for a maximum of 90 days in a year. This is managed through authorized car clubs such as the MMCCV.
There are three types of Permits - H plates for historical vehicles, M plates for modified vehicles and S plates for street rods.
Basically Morries that seem pretty original are H plates and Morries with non Morris engines need M plates. Once you have modified a vehicle you need a VASS certificate (check the VicRoads web site for more information).
There are obligations involved in holding a club permit for your vehicle. You must carry and fill in the log book every day you drive it, if you don't your vehicle is unregistered. You cannot drive the vehicle in an un-roadworthy condition on Australian roads.
If the club becomes aware of an un-roadworthy CPS vehicle, they are obliged to ask you to fix it in a specified time and then report the vehicle to VicRoads.
The MMCCV Club Permit Scheme Officer, Wayne Cunningham, is a hard working volunteer and can be contacted to sort out any queries.
He can be contcted at:
- Postal address: 4 Cullinan Court, Ballarat North, VIC, 3350
