Opts into RMS His­toric Log Book Scheme

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

As of the 1st Oc­to­ber, VJMC NSW has opted into the new His­toric Ve­hi­cle Log Book Scheme, and club mem­bers with con­di­tion­ally reg­is­tered ma­chines can opt to par­tic­i­pate in the new scheme by no­ti­fy­ing the RMS and be­ing is­sued with a Log Book for each ma­chine. The scheme al­lows up to 60 days (pro-rata per year of con­di­tional reg­is­tra­tion) to be used for ac­tiv­i­ties out­side club events, which must be recorded in the Log Book main­tained by the club mem­ber. Mem­bers can still par­tic­i­pate in club events as well as the Log Book Scheme, which means that it will be­come much eas­ier for mem­bers to get out for a ride when time al­lows with­out hav­ing to ar­range a ride to be logged into the club Day Book ahead of time. Mem­bers don’t have to join the new scheme and for those mem­bers, their Con­di­tional His­toric Reg­is­tra­tion will con­tinue as be­fore with­out any change. The Log Book Scheme for His­toric Ve­hi­cles starts 1st Oc­to­ber 2015, and early in 2016, a new Mod­i­fied Clas­sic Ve­hi­cle Scheme will be in­tro­duced. Mem­bers of par­tic­i­pat­ing recog­nised clubs may opt-in to the log book trial from 1 Oc­to­ber 2015. To opt in, the reg­is­tered ve­hi­cle op­er­a­tor or their rep­re­sen­ta­tive must at­tend a registry or ser­vice cen­tre and present proof of iden­tity such as a NSW driver li­cence, the cur­rent Cer­tifi­cate of Con­di­tional Reg­is­tra­tion (if avail­able), the cur­rent Cer­tifi­cate of Ap­proved Op­er­a­tions (if avail­able) and a com­pleted Change of Records (PDF) to have the ve­hi­cle’s con­di­tions up­dated. The Clas­sic Log Book may be used for 60 days per year sub­ject to log book con­di­tions.

Op­er­a­tors of ex­ist­ing con­di­tion­ally reg­is­tered his­toric ve­hi­cles will be is­sued: Cer­tifi­cate of Con­di­tional Reg­is­tra­tion, Cer­tifi­cate of Ap­proved Op­er­a­tions, with the up­dated con­di­tions Clas­sic Ve­hi­cle Log Book Trial form. There is no cost to ex­ist­ing mem­bers that choose to opt into the log book trial. The log book will be aligned with the an­nual term of the con­di­tion­ally reg­is­tered ve­hi­cle. Early in 2016, Stage 2 will see the de­vel­op­ment of a Mod­i­fied Clas­sic Ve­hi­cle Scheme. This scheme will pro­vide the op­por­tu­nity for mod­i­fied clas­sic ve­hi­cles which are 30 years of age or older to also be con­di­tion­ally reg­is­tered. The Mod­i­fied Clas­sic Ve­hi­cle Scheme is an­tic­i­pated to op­er­ate in a sim­i­lar way to the His­toric Ve­hi­cle Scheme. Things like form­ing a club, join­ing a club and ap­ply­ing for con­di­tional reg­is­tra­tion will be sim­i­lar. Clubs may also choose to par­tic­i­pate in the log book trial for clas­sic ve­hi­cles. Ex­ist­ing recog­nised his­toric ve­hi­cle clubs may also choose to be­come a club un­der the Mod­i­fied Clas­sic Ve­hi­cle Scheme. Some mat­ters cur­rently be­ing worked through with en­thu­si­asts, industry and gov­ern­ment stake­hold­ers in­clude the ve­hi­cle stan­dards and CTP in­sur­ance clas­si­fi­ca­tion. Mod­i­fied ve­hi­cles re­quire a dif­fer­ent process to de­ter­mine their suit­abil­ity for safe use and it is im­por­tant that clubs have this ca­pa­bil­ity. In­di­vid­u­als are el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply for a log book for each ve­hi­cle they have reg­is­tered un­der the His­toric Ve­hi­cle Scheme as long as the re­spec­tive recog­nised club is par­tic­i­pat­ing in the log book trial. Full de­tails of the scheme are avail­able on the RMS web­site at: www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roads/reg­is­tra­tion/get-nswreg­is­tra­tion/his­toric-ve­hi­cles/log-book-trial.html
