January 1989 date is cut off for RAWS. Anything post that has to be done by a RAWS approved workshop.
Yes, I was referring to imports we could handle without the need of a RAWS.
I thought the club reg thing was national now? In any case you can see it's being abused on a massive scale by people using historic reg cars as daily drivers. I can't see how it won't be pulled or at the very least made more restrictive.
I see guys commuting to work in old Toyotas and BMW's on a regular basis.
Not sure about national but here in Vic:
From 1 February 2011, new conditions of use for club permit vehicles apply.
Under the new conditions of use, permit holders are no longer restricted to club sanctioned activities when using their vehicles. Club Permit vehicles can be used at any time for any purpose other than for the carriage of goods or passengers for hire or reward.
A logbook is issued to permit holders to record the use of the vehicle over the permit period. A log book entry must be made each day that the vehicle is used (unless the vehicle is within 100 metres of the garaged address).
A logbook must be carried in the vehicle, or on the rider in the case of motorcycles, at all times the vehicle is in use.
Financial members of VicRoads’ approved clubs are able to apply for either a 45 or 90 day permit depending on how much use they expect to make of their vehicles over a 12 month period. If a person obtains a 45 day permit but later decides that this is not enough, another 45 day permit may be purchased later on.
However, no-one will be able to obtain a permit to drive their vehicle for more than 90 days in each 12 month registration period.
If the conditions are not met the Cops will issue fines. If you are caught driving on a permit and not following the rules you are driving an unrego'ed vehicle in the eyes of the law. I do know of one guy in the local Hot Rod club that was issues 2 $600 fines in one week due to not following the Log book rules.....
