There might be a few schemes mixed in here, so people in different states need to check with their clubs and authorities as to what they have. In the ACT, there is a Historic scheme (limited to club events / mechanical runs), and they are working in a Special Interest scheme, where you can have x days a year of open driving (like the 45 or 90 day scheme listed above for Victoria). However it is not 'in' as yet, just being worked on here. NSW has the Historic scheme but nothing offering 'open' driving for x days a year. You would normally need to be an active member of your club to enjoy these benefits. For example, in our club you must attend x events each year with your Historic rego'd car, failure to do so (without valid reason) will see your rego not renewed the following year. I have had a few recent contacts from locals who want 'club' rego (historic) but don't want to do anything with a club.....they just want the cheap rego. Check what your state has and go through the requirements, they differ everywhere. But it can be a way of reducing your rego bill if some of your cars only go on club events.
