Club Permit Scheme 2015.
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

Your Club Permit renewal notice will be e/mailed to you five to six weeks before expiry. The renewal notice will be for your existing period of use (45 or 90 days). If you wish to change your period of use contact VicRoads on 13 11 71 to request an updated renewal notice be sent to you, or change your period when paying your renewal at any VicRoads Customer Service Centre. 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.
