Council Communique  December 2022

MOU for Classic Cars Concessional  Registration signed 

After nearly five years of negotiation, the Council of ACT Motor Clubs and Transport Canberra have finally signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to allow changes to the Concessional Registration Scheme (CRS) for vehicles over 30 years of age. The new system has been approved by the ACT Government. 

The signing of the MOU was effected at Transport Canberra’s office on Thursday 15 December 2022 by Council President, Roger Amos  and Mr Rod Paule from the Transport Department who, with Dave Rogers (Council Registrar), had developed and negotiated the document. 

Council president, Roger Amos, said “the signing of the MOU was a major step forward in bringing the introduction of the 60-day usage scheme for veteran, vintage historic and modified  vehicles in the ACT and I wish to thank Council Registrar, Dave Rogers and Council Vice president Mark Saunders, and the Transport Canberra team Rod Paule and Murry Nicholls for the amount of time and effort they all put in to bring this part of the scheme to finality”.

The MOU sets out the usage and other requirements and responsibilities of the parties in the new 60-day/Club use scheme. It also includes the new Historic Modified category. 

The system will involve the use of a government logbook linked to each vehicle which must be used to identify each journey before starting. 

The changes to the existing scheme are expected to be introduced in the first quarter of 2023 with Access Canberra implementing the processes. 

The President, Roger Amos and committee of the Council of the ACT Motor Clubs wishes Council delegate a very happy, merry and safe Festive season.
