The Club calendar [membership] commences 1st July and ends 30th June. If your car/s are on Conditional Registration and you have not paid your Club Membership fee [due date 30th June each year], you are driving an unregistered and uninsured car. Please ensure your membership fee is paid up and your log book is current and stamped with the correct year.
Once your car has been granted Conditional Registration, the onus is on the owner of the vehicle to maintain their vehicle in original order and to keep the log book/s up to date.
An annual log book validation [the club organises a day and venue for this] is required. All Members are entitled to register their car/s on Conditional Registration if their pride and joy meets all requirements.
GENERAL MEMBER INFORMATION
Does my car need a seatbelt?
Under the Road Traffic Act and Regulations seat belts are required in the driver’s and front outboard seating positions from 1 July 1967.
Seat belts for all front seating positions (including in the middle of the bench seat) became mandatory from 1 January 1969 and for all seating positions from 1 January 1971 (i.e. including the back seat).
The level of safety provided by seat belts must not be reduced. Seat belts must not be replaced by belts of a lesser design rule standard.
A person must not sell a seat belt or part of a seat belt for use in a motor vehicle that has previously been installed in another vehicle.
Seat belts and anchorages for seat belts in motor vehicles (whenever manufactured) must be maintained in sound condition and good working order.
At a recent Club event one of our members was pulled over by Police in relation to the plastic number plate on his classic vehicle. These plates are no longer approved for use.
Only number plates issued by Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) and made by the approved manufacturer comply with the requirements of the Motor Vehicles Act.
Number plates must be clearly visible from the front and rear of a motor vehicle and must not be obscured by a tow ball, load, plastic cover, dirt build-up or any part of the vehicle’s bodywork.
At night, the number plate on the rear of the vehicle must be lit with a white light, so it can be read 20 metres from the vehicle.
