Victorian Club Plates
« on: May 12, 2008, 09:39:00 PM »
To bnicho,

Brett, noticed in one of your most recent pic postings, your fancy number plates. As a newbie, could you fill me in on the rules, restrictions and costs of those plates ?  8)

Hi,
To get Club Permit plates you have to be a member of a car club recognised by VicRoads (eg: MOA).  You are restricted to:
- Use for events in the club calendar of any car club you are current financial member of.
- Ad Hoc use within 5km of home for testing/preparation purposes.  (Don't drive it to work every day or you will get sprung!)
- Pre-booked repairs/maintenace.
- "Special Use Permit" where you can get a permits from your car club to use the car on a certain day.  (eg: Go on a holiday for a few days).  There is a limit on the number of special use permits, not sure what that is. 

Roadworthiness requirements are up to the club to decide, they will require one of the following:
- An RWC
- An inspection by a scrutineer of the club to verify the vehicle is safe.

The advantage is cost - only around $100 a year vs $500 for full rego. 

I'm actually in Ballarat right now on a special use permit, because I'm on holidays and I wanted to give the Moke a good run!

There is talk of a change to the scheme so you are issued with a log book with 30 vouchers a year and you must fill out a voucher before you commence your journey.  I hope this does come in because it's less restrictive. 

Cheers,

Thanks Brett, that covers all the issues. The Club Permit is tempting.

Check with insurer too, less use may mean lower premium!

Yes!

Seamoke - rego is 20% of the normal rate and insurance at least half.  It allows you to justify extra vehicles that are only used occasionally.

Hi Brett,

But if you like to use it as a daily driver during the warmer months for going to the shops,beach or picking the kids up from school I gather you could not use the club rego? How many days notice does the club need before you can take your Moke on say......a day drive at random?

No, club rego is not appropriate for that much use.  Howe much notice is required depends on the club.  Usually a couple of days minimum.

- Use for events in the club calendar of any car club you are current financial member of.
You are also permitted to attend gazetted events held by other clubs that are also approved by Vicroads.

CPS is not suitable if you want to use the Car as a daily driver or have to freedom to jump into when you want. It is more intended for vehicles you only use on Club runs. Enforcement is the responsibility of the club which means if you are spotted or pulled over driving your CPS Moke at the wrong time you can lose the privilege and the club can be removed from the scheme and all members have to return their CPS permits and plates and you are likely to be hated by a whole lot of people.

Insurance isn't necessarily connected to the CPS, in the case of LSV you can get get priavte recreational coverage and a fully registerd Moke for a bit over $100 provided you do less than 8,000km per year.

The new scheme being reviewd by Vicroads isn't a voucher system as Bnicho suggest but it is a Log Book arrangement that allows you take the vehicle out on 90 days. Currently waiting on Vicroads approval.

Thanks Brett and Terry,


Sounds like it suits some and not others! I thought it would be a little more flexible than that.

For me it's perfect as I rarely use my Moke outside club events.  Plus the club plate sec works near my home, so the paperwork for a day's permit on the rare occasions I need one is easy.
