Historic Rego

What is Historic or Club Registration?

NSW offers Historic or Classic Registration for vehicles that are 30 or more years of age when the operator is a member of a recognised club. It is often referred to as club rego or a club permit. Historic Registration is only for vehicles that are in original condition, Classic Registration allows for vehicles to be modified. At this stage we are only able to offer Historic Registration. Historic Registration costs around $50 per year and includes your Compulsory Third Party Insurance (CTP). You can use the vehicle for personal use up to 60 days per year by filling out the 60 Day Logbook each time you go for a drive.

FAQ

Answers to Your Questions

What is the difference between Historic Registration and Classic Registration?

Historic Registration is only for vehicles that are in original condition, Classic Registration allows for vehicles to be modified. At this stage we are only able to offer Historic Registration.

Do I have to attend club meetings or have my vehicle inspected by the club?

No, all meetings are entirely optional. You can conduct all business with us online and your local mechanic can provide the required Inspection Report (pink slip).

When can I use my vehicle and what is the logbook?

The logbook allows you to use your vehicle for personal use up to 60 days per year. Our club does not allow you to use the vehicle for commercial uses including passenger transport. You will receive a logbook when you register the vehicle and must fill it out before you start your drive. In addition to the 60 days, you are allowed to use the vehicle for events organised by the club.

What do I need when applying for Historic Registration with the state?

● Original Historic vehicle declaration form signed and stamped by us.
● Original Inspection Report (pink slip).
● Proof of ownership such as a receipt or old rego papers.
● Previous number plates if not already returned.
● A completed application form, your ID and payment.

Do I need an inspection to renew the registration?

Yes, the state requires either a club inspection or an Inspection Report (pink slip) for renewal. Even though our club is authorised to conduct inspections, we still require you to get an Inspection Report (pink slip) from your mechanic. This is because we believe inspections should be left to professional mechanics for safety reasons and are unable to reach all our members due to the large area we cover.
