    Hi again
    My Kombi is currently on NSW Historic Registration, due to plans for many more driving days in the future we will be putting her back on Full Rego, has anyone here done this with their vehicle. RMS told me that I have to get a blue slip, however a second call to RMS said i dont, hence the reason for this post, has anyone actually done it. She is currently registered and insured and is current until December 2019.

    Thanks again for reading.

    Cancelling conditional registration
    You can cancel the conditional registration at any time by completing the Cancel Registration Advice on the back of the vehicle’s Certificate of Registration, and presenting the advice at a registry or service centre.

    There is no cancellation fee, and no refund for the administration or number plates fees already paid.

    A cancellation letter will be sent, so you can apply for a refund for the unused portion of the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance premium.

    Found here: https://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roads/registration/get-nsw-registration/conditional.html

    My understanding was that you needed a Blue Slip as it is classed as unregistered again. I can't find anything in writing on the RMS website - maybe you should ask the Plates Registrar in your club.

    Yes that is what has been said to me, not sure why though, the vehicle is currently registered, was on full registration prior to going over to Historic, has not been unregistered prior or after Historic rego.

    If your car is on historical rego it is classified as an unregistered vehicle,regardless of what ,where and when it was on before it become an historical rego. It doesn't seem correct but unfortunately it is an unregistered vehicle and every time you use it
    A) you got to log it in under the 60 day use scheme or
    B) Use it under a club event requirement of use.

    It also has to do with the fact that only the club member can drive it. It's like the car is unregistered but only allowed to be on the road for the limited days - that way when you sell the car, you can't sell the person who is the club member with it. It is hard to put into words - but think of it like buying a car from out of state - you have to get a blue slip then to put it into NSW rego anyway - but with historic or club rego, legally a new purchaser would not be able to drive it away as they would not be a club member of the club linked to your vehicle.

    ADDN: No longer the case - see later post 24/8/19

    So if a perspective buyer drives the vehicle, whilst on club rego, should there be an accident, the registration and green slip are invalid?

    Probably. My advice would be, if you were thinking of selling, get it off historic first.

    I understand the original poster was not thinking of selling - it was for more use than 60 days per year. Sorry to take it off track.

    Correct, we will be touring permanently in the future and wanted to put her back on full rego, seems like I will have to blue slip her first, thank you to everyone who responded.

    I’m not up on what a “blue slip” actually is, but it is the same as visit to the motor registry pits, to conduct a full inspection to ensure there is no issues, and the vehicle is safe & roadworthy, to then be legally registered as such? o_O

    Or can a licensed mechanics workshop perform a “blue slip”? :rolleyes:

    No, an automotive repair license is different. To carry out blue slip inspections, they need to be an authorised/licensed registration inspection workshop with blue slip capability. Some authorised inspection workshops can only do pink slip inspections.
