MJOC Club Permit Scheme

MJOC Club Permit Scheme

As a benefit to members the club offers the Vicroads Club Permit Scheme (CPS) for members who own a vehicle that is more than 25 years old and is in a roadworthy condition. The Permit allows for either 45 or 90 days of use per year

The Club has Policies and Procedures in place, which deal with how the Club Permit Scheme runs within our Club and considers members obligations and compliance with Vicroads rules and regulations.

To ensure members understand the above responsibility and the Vicroads Log Book system, on application members sign and undergo a written contractual agreement to follow the policies and procedures of the MJOC CPS which includes taking responsibility for any possible modifications and maintaining the vehicle in roadworthy condition.


The scheme is only available to current financial members and members must remain financial to maintain inclusion in the CPS. A lapse of membership may result in vehicle becoming unregistered after 14 days or more.

A VicRoads CPS log book is used to record your use of the vehicle. When driving your CPS vehicle, you must carry your VicRoads log book and permit (with that day’s driving details completed). Victoria Police enforce the scheme and this log book must be completed and kept in the vehicle whilst in use.

The scheme has two types of permit classification

  1. H plates which are for vehicles that are not modified and comply with the requirements of the roadworthy certificate.
  2. M plates which are for modified vehicles that do not comply with the roadworthy certificate regulations and require either an Engineers Certificate or a VASS Certificate.

To participate in the MJOC CPS you must be a current member of the club.

Please read on for the following updates :

- Alignment of VicRoads club permit forms with the Road Safety (Vehicles) Regulations 2021
- Commonwealth requirement - Classic and collectible vehicles imported from 1 July 2021 will be issued a VIN that must be stamped on the vehicle.

Alignment of VicRoads club permit forms with the Road Safety (Vehicles) Regulations 2021

VicRoads has updated a number of Club Permit forms to improve the vehicle data collected by VicRoads, and to ensure that the correct permit types and club permit plates are issued to eligible vehicles. 

What do Club Permit Scheme clubs and members need to do?
The updated forms are now available on the VicRoads website at for you and your members to use.

- Club Permit application form
- Club Permit reassignment form
- Vehicle eligibility and standards declaration form
- Approved club office bearers and scrutineers

Please encourage your members to use these current forms rather than previous versions.

Why have these changes been made?
These forms  now have an updated layout and align with the Road Safety (Vehicles) Regulations 2021.  

Club Permit application 

- There are only four categories of Club Permit – Veteran, Vintage, Classic and Historic, and Street Rod.
- Each category now has a sub-category – either Original, Modified or Replica.
- The documents required for each sub-category are listed at the bottom of the form.

Vehicle eligibility and standards declaration for Club Permit vehicles

- Now includes a record of the VASS approval certificate and Vehicle import details, where applicable.

Club permit reassignment and Club permit agreement

- Re-ordering of the data fields.  

Club Permit logbook

- The Club Permit logbook has been updated to align with regulation changes.

New requirement - Classic and collectible vehicles imported from 1 July 2021 will be issued a VIN that must be stamped on the vehicle.
With the introduction of the Commonwealth Road Vehicle Standards Act 2018 and Road Vehicle Standards Rules 2019, vehicles imported from 1 July 2021 that do not already have a 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) stamped into the vehicle will be issued a VIN, which needs to be stamped on the vehicle. 

Club members who are considering importing these vehicles should familiarise themselves with the new requirements as explained below.

Most classic and collectible vehicles are issued a chassis number by the vehicle manufacturer.  Under the Commonwealth Road Vehicle Standards Act 2018 and Road Vehicle Standards Rules 2019, these types of vehicles are now imported under the concessional entry pathway and recorded on the Register of Approved Vehicles (RAV).  

As these vehicles do not have a 17-character VIN that meets the ISO standards, the Commonwealth Department of Transport Infrastructure Regional Development and Communications (DITRDC) will issue a VIN with the condition that the VIN must be stamped on the vehicle.  It is an offence under the  Commonwealth legislation if this condition is not complied with. A plate attached to the vehicle displaying the VIN is not acceptable.

The VIN provided by the Commonwealth via the RAV process is the identifier by which the vehicle must be known throughout Australia for registration and club permit purposes and is how the vehicle’s origin will be determined for the purpose of registration/CPS permit eligibility.
