What was the process of getting the vehicle on club reg in Victoria?

Club reg process was great and very easy.

Car needs to be over 25 years old and you need to be a member of an approved car club (BMW CCV).
The car needs to be 'roadworthy' but does not need an official VicRoads RWC - it has to be inspected by the club's qualified scrutineer who fills in the application sheet. Take that, receipt of ownership and $130 to VicRoads - and they hand over the permit logbook and plates. No inspection etc - really easy.

Providing the club signs off on it - the car can be modified and/or LHD.
Hellooo E30 M3 for my 40th :)

To get the BMW on full reg would have cost about $1,300 ($250 stamp, $670 rego, $300 RWC, $35 transfer fee, $47 plates etc) - so paying $130 all in is amazing value.

I did all this in 3 hrs which included a drive from Melbourne to Hastings (where the BMW Club guy is), and back via Frankston VicRoads. Less work than getting real rego.

You are only allowed to drive a max of 90 days a year and as such the logbook has only 90 entries in it. You need to be 'logged' everywhere you go unless you are 'within 100m of the car's garaged address' - ie: to move it around on the street.

The onus is on the club to ensure people are not abusing the system - and if you are caught driving without the logbook filled in etc it is considered the same as driving an unregistered vehicle. The club gets notified too - so you may be expelled.

Sounds ominous - but as the 5er is pretty much a weekender and most weekends have swimming lessons, shopping errands, park visits, play dates, home jobs etc - to actually have 90 days where I can drive the car is going to be less likely than running out of room in the book!

Plus the club plates look cool :)

Thanks mate. My e30 M3 is currently in Melbourne with Autologic and getting roadworthy and compliance work completed. I've joined the BMW CCV so hopefully it will be straight forward. Keeping it LHD!

Are you putting the M3 on club reg?
If you need a hand with anything - let me know.

I'm out with the BMW CCV on Sunday. Graeme Bell (contact details are on the BMW CCV site) is the Motorsport director (the scrutineer). I actually need to see him to get the the blue 635i checked and ready for club rego - so am happy to help if I can.

What is the differance between club rego and historic rego back here in SA???
The 90 log book is the same, if it just a different name?

30 years old in SA.

You use normal plates.

The rest is basically the same.

The old club rego system in Vic had lots of restrictions around use - had to be a club event, could only travel to workshops etc
This way you can drive your car anywhere, at anytime for up to 90 days a year.

Not sure how the SA system works - but would assume it is pretty similar.

Just fill in the log book before you drive. You don't need to be on a club run. 90 days a year. I am going to put the horse truck on it as this year it hits 30.

Historic rego here in SA is a fantastically cheap way to keep a car collection on the road! 90 days is actually very generous and no limitations as to where its driven. Does the VIC club reg still have restrictions on how far or where car is driven eg can a Vic club reg be driven interstate?

Nope - could drive it for 90 days straight in laps around the country.
As long as you enter the logbook data before you set off (each day) - you're good to go.

You can even opt for a 45 day version for $70 - and then upgrade to another 45 days if you need it.
