To All Members with Vehicles on H or D plates,
The RMS now have a compliance squad going around checking vehicles for the correct
compliance for the registration that the vehicle is covered for. ie H or D plates. Two clubs in
the Sydney region have had their H & D plate privileges revoked and have been suspended
for quite a lengthy period of time.
In order to ensure our Club’s compliance with the laws now being enforced by the RMS, it is
necessary for one of the Club’s Registrars to inspect all vehicles registered through the Club
on an annual basis. Issue of historic and conditional plate registration to members will be
withheld until the vehicle is inspected and assessed for eligibility by a Club Registrar.
This inspection can occur at an event or at a meeting provided you arrange it with one of
the Registrars beforehand. Alternately you can arrange to have the inspection conducted at
one of the Registrar’s homes via a time and date appointment.
Proof of a minimum of Third Party Insurance must be provided.
Please do not blame the Registrars, they are simply doing as the Committee has ask of
them. It is not the Registrar’s or the Committee’s fault if you fail to meet the minimum
requirements under the Club’s Constitution or if you leave it too late and your vehicle
registration lapses.
Vehicles can be driven unregistered for the purposes of obtaining registration.
For new registrations and for those in any doubt about modifications it may be wise to have
the vehicle inspected by a Registrar prior to obtaining your Pick Slip. Just in case, you may
need to get a Blue Slip instead.
Plates are issued in the belief that the Members prime intended use is for Club Outings and
Events. The Committee retains the right to reconsider eligibility for issue or the removal of
Club plates should this cease to be the case or if the vehicle does not attend any Club
Outings or Events during the year without good cause.
There are two books to be signed, one is for attendance at meetings and one is for
attendance at outings. It is your responsibility to make sure that you sign the meeting
attendance book at meetings and that you put your name and registration number in the
outings book when attending outings. These books will be checked to see that you comply
with the required attendances (3) upon your request for registration renewal.
Conditional registration is a Club privilege and is issued at the Club’s discretion in
accordance with the Constitution.
On Behalf of the Committee.
