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.

Step 1: Sign up for myVicRoads  

Step 2. VicRoads will send you an email to let you know it's almost time to renew your club permit. They will also send you a letter in the mail with your renewal notice, sticker, and logbook. The letter will be sent up to 6 weeks before your renewal is due. The usage period will be the same as your existing permit, either 45 or 90 days of use. 

Step 3. When you receive your renewal notice in the mail, download and complete a Club Permit Endorsement Form 

Step 4. Sign your renewal notice and then scan both the renewal notice and Club Permit Endorsement Form and email them to the Permits Secretary .An authorised club signatory will sign the endorsement form and return it to you.

Step 5. In your myVicRoads account: Upload the renewal notice signed by you and the Club endorsement form completed by the club officer bearer and pay the renewal fee.
Renewal processing takes 3-5 business days. Vic Roads will notify you via email once the application has been processed. Your email notification that your Club Permit renewal has been approved will include your renewal receipt. Please keep a digital copy or print your receipt and keep in your car as proof of payment and to confirm that your permit is valid. 

If the electronic process doesn't suit you, post the renewal notice to the club at PO Box 79, Hawthorn Business Centre, Vic 3122 together with a stamped self-addressed envelope for return of the application.
