Concessions for Classics scheme to see registration costs plummet next year

The State Government has announced further details on its Concessions for Classics scheme, which could save some classic car owners significant sums of money each year.

Minister for Transport Rita Saffioti said under the new scheme, classic cars will be see licensing fees slashed by 75 per cent and a “significant reduction” in motor injury insurance fees.

The vehicles can be driven for a maximum of 90 days per year, made up of 60 days participating in approved motoring club sanctioned events and 30 days for personal use including testing, maintenance and repair.

To be eligible, vehicles must have a gross vehicle mass under 4500kg, a street rod as defined in the National Guidelines for the Construction and Modification of Street Rods in Australia, or a car or motorbike made before 1990.

Owners need to be a financial member of a Department of Transport approved motoring club, or the vehicle itself needs to be owned by an approved club.

Approved vehicles can’t be used for hire and reward purposes and will be required to display an approved identifier showing it has restricted road use on its number plates.

The scheme was due to launch in the second half of 2020, however the Department said the COVID pandemic has seen the plan introduced early next year.
