Club Permit Scheme.
The Club Permit Scheme places obligations on LCV and the Club is required to sign an agreement with VicRoads that it will meet it’s obligations. The Scheme places obligations on permit holders. VicRoads has the right to revoke the Club’s approval for the purposes of the scheme or to suspend or cancel a permit if the permit holder fails to comply with the permit conditions. We encourage both first time applicants for Club Permits and current permit holders to read and familiarise themselves with the documents relating to the Scheme on the VicRoads website.
Renewals of Existing Permits
Make sure your permit vehicle is included in your membership details on the LCV website.
Read the Vic Roads information here. Note that if the permit expires and is not renewed within 90 days of expiry a new permit application will need to be submitted.
The renewing process has changed to also allow for electronic signature. Your renewal notice can be signed by the permit secretary or vice president.
New applications for Club Permit Plates. From 2022, first time applicants must be a full member of the club.
Vic Roads requirements are here. genrally speaking, vehicles need to be 25 years old to qualify.
To obtain LCV sponsorship for a club plates application:
Obtain a Roadworthy Certificate (RWC) for each vehicle for which a Permit is sought. This includes persons wishing to move their vehicle from full registration to the Club Permit Scheme.
Complete a VicRoads Club Permit Application Form and a Vehicle Eligibility and Standards Declaration Form as well as a LCV Permit Application
Obtain dated photographs of the vehicle(s) including:
images of the front,
driving position (side on, and if the vehicle has doors, with driver’s door open)
where possible identifiers such as chassis number and engine number.
If the photographs are not dated, a letter confirming the date on which the photographs were taken must be included with the application. The Club reserves the right to ask a Member to present their vehicle for inspection by one of the signatories so that its eligibility under the Scheme can be validated.
If the vehicle(s) is modified or is a replica that has not previously been registered, the applicant must advise the LCV signatory of those modifications and a Vehicle Assessment Signatory Scheme (VASS) approval certificate must be provided. Examples that require a VASS certificate are: engine changes or modifications not offered as an option for that model by the vehicle manufacturer (eg Honda engine swaps); left to right hand conversions; chassis swaps.
A copy of the RWC, VASS (if applicable), the VicRoads Application Forms, together with photographs of the car and a completed LCV Permit Application are to be forwarded to the Permit Secretary at the Club’s postal address together with a stamped self addressed envelope for return of the application.
NOTE: The Club reserves the right to sight the original of the RWC and VASS (if applicable) to validate its authenticity before signing the member’s VicRoads Application Form.
The applicant is responsible to submit the required documentation and relevant payments to VicRoads.
