    Generally you get a RWC and the Club will take it from there. Dave C can probably advise you.

    The key people to talk to to get this properly sorted are Christine Gajic, Secretary, RCCV, on 9735 0358 or 0421 459 226 and/or Dave Cavanagh at French Connection in Airport West 9338 8191. Dave is the Club officer responsible for certifying club plate cars. It's good you are a member of RCCV as these days, you cannot keep a club plate car unless you retain your membership.

    Hi Ian:
    Ken is spot on. Keep in mind that David's role is to scrutineer the vehicle he must be convinced that the car is safe and roadworthy- he will test drive it and check that it's safe. Technically you don't need a RWC for club plates. You will need proof of car club membership that meets vicroads requirements a club card will not. You need the approval paperwork from David. Vicroads will issue you with the plates and log book make sure you keep this accurate as any errors can cause the club to lose it's right to issue club plates- that would make everyone very unhappy!
    I found that Carlton vicroads is the best place to go as they have the plates and log books and don't get stupid with rules.

    cheers

    Thanks everyone i will chat with David C. Monday.

    I am have been a RCCV member for about 9 months. My other car is a road registered r12.

    Why do i need 2 r12s?
    I don't know, but i guess the reason is because they are there.
    I am sure many of you understand that one.

    This is pretty much what happens. There are 2 ways to do it. 1) get a RWC and come to me or Chris to get your papers signed. 2) Get me to inspect it and if I'm happy I can sign it off there and then.

    Go to Carlton as Redbacks suggests because most of the others are to power crazy.

    Redbacks says you need proof of membership and the club card wont do. This isn't exactly true. I've told vicroads time and time again that the card is the only form of membership you get, all clubs are the same, this is your proof plus it's not up to vicroads to check it. That's the clubs resposibilty to make sure everyone applying for the scheme has been checked out by there club.

    At Carlton, every car I've ever done they have never asked you proof of membership, ID is all they've wanted.

    Be fast ... or it'll be the roadworthy path for you.

    https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/regi...o-club-permits

    This is a limited overview. I'll scan and post the documents sent out to all the car clubs about the proposed changes when I get a chance. The changes are mostly positive (other than the requirements for a full roadworthy. Which really sucks bigtime for a 40+ year old vehicle ).

    The changes take the "grey area" out of modified vehicles and allow for "M" plates. It's going to be a LOT of work for clubs to upkeep a "picture" register of all there permit vehicles though. What a PITA.
