    Will be putting my Kombi on Historic plates as well. I barely use it 60 days now. Just over once a week.

    I put the 75 on Historic rego today - total cost of $90 for 1 year with 60 days use. Cost me $154 to transfer the BAY075 plates over to the 74!!

    That $90 would have included the one off fee for the new plate, so rego will be even cheaper next year, Under $50 including green slip. Bargain.
    When you let Shannons know about the plate change you will also get a reduction in premium and excess to $200. They will also refund any pro rata unused insurance.

    I notified Shannons but I pay by the month so my instalments went down (but not by a huge amount) but any saving is worth it in the long run.
    Yes its $44 for the one off plate fee.

    I have read through the post and it looks like I have to find a club near me to get my kombi onto historic or classic plates? does the kombi club forum not count as a club? with the events and meetings held online each day? Can the kombi club please look into this as I think we already have a club.

    We don't.
    Its a forum.
    A club must be incorporated as per relevent legislation and perform all required functions.

    Spot on Cbus. Forums are not bound by rules & legislation. It called a club because that's the 'domain name' but other that what we do as a collective there are no boundaries (except for Moderators approvals ...or not;))
    This 'club' is not 'incorporated' with all 'registered entities' & necessary 'memorandums & articles of association' which bind the actions of the 'incorporated identity'. Thus the government doesn't recognise any actions of the collective:p.
    Just a bunch of like minded owners/supporters here;):D.

    In Victoria Clubs need to be "authorised'" by Vicroads who list the approved Clubs. Check with NSW authority?

    Same in NSW. Just needs to be authorised by the RMS and registered, not incorporated. I don't think that you can BS the RMS on this one.

    And for Qld at least it appears that some clubs have the one year wait rule but others don't.
    Same applies re inspections.

    List of recognised clubs for NSW Historic rego here.

    http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&r...le-clubs.pdf&usg=AOvVaw2hjXJHBzIm7zpdRJg5qHmD

    Each club has it's own set of rules, some require you to attend some meetings/events. Some clubs are able to provide you with your roadworthy so you don't have to get a pink slip. Our club, the 'Byron Bay Car Club' for instance charges you a $50 per year membership and this includes all roadworthy certificates (in our case 3 Kombi, 1 vintage caravan).

    Hi Pete.
    From memory and info off members...
    Both clubs discussed $50 per yr membership.
    No waiting time.
    No compulsory meetings.
    Another club more anal and insisted on own safety checks and attend some meetings.

    Check transport dept website for their details.
    Rego cost?
    Had to be the green n white or a personalised plate.
    Travel to any club or other registered club events.
    15km from registered address anytime for testing.
    Anywhere for repairs etc but pays to have that confirmed by a booking.
    Some charitable or such events.
    Will dig out a link.
    Cheers

    As mentioned in some previous threads, State authority demands certain requirements, Clubs can apply their own extra criteria. Check the State authority web page and then ask the club what they require above and beyond. The clubs do have some responsibilities applying the schemes.
    The Club rego schemes were initiated for Clubs to promote the use of historic and classic club vehicles, not just a 'cheap' rego scam.

    I don't know about now but Club VeeDub Sydney used to be 100% with the regulations for fear of losing their accreditation. I know of at least one person that had his registration cancelled and the Police were notified.

    Recall hearing of another VW Club that had issues also which resulted in stricter adherence to governing rules put in place ;) ....... only takes one to ruin it for everyone :(
