About the Club Permit Scheme
Financial members of Melton Motor Sports Club Inc. are eligible to apply to drive their Historic vehicles under the VicRoads Club Permit Scheme.
VicRoads is responsible for running this scheme in conjunction with The AOMC (Association of Motoring Clubs).
This is important: the Club Permit Scheme is not vehicle registration – it is a special type of “permit to drive” an unregistered vehicle, under restricted use provisions. A reduced third-party insurance premium is payable, based on the fact that the vehicle is not in regular use.
This is also important: you must be a current financial member of MMSC for your MMSC-administered Club Permit to be valid. If your membership lapses so does the permit. You will then be driving an unregistered vehicle and open to penalties for doing so.
Vicroads is currently reviewing the Club Permit Scheme (CPS). This has come about as a result of numerous complaints received by Victoria Police and other authorities in relation to CPS vehicles intercepted or reported. For example, many being used as daily drivers, highly modified CPS vehicles appearing on some TV shows and injuries or fatalities involving highly modified vehicles wearing CPS plates.
Modified Vehicles (other than competition vehicles, ie those with Roll over Protection Structures (ROPS)), will be subject to Vehicle Standards Information Bulletin 8 (VSI 8 = Vic State) and Vehicle Standards Bulletin 14 (VSB14 = Federal).
