club permit scheme - MMCCV Inc
What is the Club Permit Scheme?
Commonly called "The CPS 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 any one year. This is managed through authorized car clubs. One such club is the MMCCV.
There are three types of Permits - H plates for historical vehicles, M plates for modified vehicles and S plates for street rod vehicles.
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 will need to have a VASS certificate (check the VicRoads web site for more information) for this vehicle.
VicRoads has announced the continuation of the Club Plate Numbering Scheme into the future and what that numbering will be.
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, then your vehicle is deemed to be an unregistered vehicle.
- You cannot drive your vehicle in an un-roadworthy condition on any Australian road.
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 repairs of your vehicle to VicRoads.
The MMCCV Club Permit Scheme Officer, (CPS Officer), Geoff Shepherd, is a hard working volunteer and can be contacted to sort out any queries.
Until he returns to the State, CPS matters can be handled by:
- Postal address: PO Box 1112, South Melbourne, VIC, 3205
- Phone contact: 0419 137 711
- or click firstname.lastname@example.org to send an email to the Prersident on CPS matters for the short term.
