from Facebook post, also DoT has updated its website:

 

https://www.transpor...hDB3LNDEA#44985

 

These are the main points but please read the press release.

There are still details that have not been worked out or disclosed, so some stuff we have to wait and see.

So what have we got? Firstly I will stress that the scheme is voluntary. There is no compulsion for you to participate in this scheme if you feel it does not suit you. What we are getting is this, 90 days of driving split into 30 days of “free” driving (logbook) where noting your drive will allow you to drive where you wish. The rest of the days (60) are club sanctioned drives, be they ordinary club runs, shows or events as well as club notified impromptu runs. There is no extension provisions if you use up your days. Test and tune is counted in your free driving days.

Club membership is a must to be in this scheme.

The actual cost remains the same as what they announced in February at 25% of normal cost, + club membership costs.

The vehicle inspection part has gone. If the vehicle is not currently registered, I believe it will require a normal inspection the same as if it was going onto full licence, but once that is done, that is the end of the inspections unless your club requires it as a part of them offering you the scheme or if otherwise ordered by the police or the DoT itself. If you leave your club or become un-financial then your club rego finishes. If you are going to another club, I think it will transfer, but I am not sure.

An approved tag or sticker must be fitted above or below the number plates of the vehicle noting its limited use registration. You do keep your normal number plates that you already have and that also applies to personal plates. They are not running concession plates like Victoria.

If you do not wish to join an existing club, now is the time to create your own. For a club to offer the scheme, it must be a DoT approved club. The club must be Incorporated and have a minimum of 30 financial members. If your existing club has not been approved by the DoT and wants to offer the scheme, its time to get the wheels in motion.

Eligible vehicles must be 1990 produced or older and be under 4500 kg gvm,so basically, cars, bikes and light trucks, it is not a rolling age.

Code 404 vehicle use will also move to the same usage rules as for C4C. I will leave the details of how this is going to happen and what is involved to the people over at the CMC to put to its members and explain.

These are the main points but please read the press release.

The Combined Torana Car Club (CTCC) is monitoring this closely and has been involved in some of the early discussions. This scheme has progressed very positively and the final result is very pleasing and should suit most owners. (even country folks).

 

The CTCC currently offers 404 rego to its members and is fully intending to offer this to any members existing or new on a no strings basis.

In other words if you wish to join the club, be a "ghost" member and not turn up to meetings or events then we will support that. After all a club should be about its members and if some members choose not to participate in the activities then that is their choice.

 

Obviously we are hoping that any new members would like to participate at some stage - after all - that is what clubs are all about.

 

All credit goes to WA Street Machines and the huge volume of work they have done to get this scheme to where it is now. You have our appreciation and thanks. It has been a long hard struggle.

 

For anyone interested in joining the CTCC you can message me directly or have a look at our website torrietorque.com. (Which I went into yesterday and broke it - sigh - currently being fixed very soon I hope!!!) We also have a FB page - Combined Torana Car Club and an email address [email protected]

 

Our fees have not changed in years and offer Single, family and country membership. Single Metro membership is $55 so considering the saving on your rego I am not sure that is exactly going to break the bank.

 

Many of you folks have caught up with me at events or ToranaWest. It would be great to see some of you guys become part of the club and enjoy the social and now financial benefits.

 

Once again - please get in touch with me if you have any questions about the club at all. I will however support the comments above about referring to DOT for full information. Those press releases and the information on the DOT website is all the information we have at this point.
