Members of the Gold Coast MG Car Club are able to apply, depending in which state you reside, for either the Queensland Special Interest Vehicle Concessional Registration or the NSW Historic Vehicles Conditional Registration.
Both Schemes are only available for vehicles over 30 years of age, as from the date of manufacture.
Both Schemes allow owners of classic and special interest vehicles to obtain concessional/conditional registration for their vehicle(s), subject to certain restrictions on the use of these vehicles, as outlined on the respective websites and summarised below, which is reflected in the reduced registration fees and compulsory third party insurance premium. All applicants for concessional/conditional registration must be a member of a recognised motoring club.
Both schemes allow members to travel interstate in their vehicles, subject to the member abiding by the rules of the state where the vehicle is registered.
Members who wish to participate in either scheme, need to contact the Membership Secretary / Dating Officer so the vehicle can be inspected to enable the Club to provide the Member with authorisation to the respective State Government Department. This dating service is only provided to MG branded vehicles.
It is the members responsibility to:-
- be a financial member of the Club,
- be informed and comply with current State Government regulations in regard to Concessional / Conditional Registration. (Information on these schemes is available via your local Ministry of Transport Office or their approved websites.)
- operate their vehicle within the published guidelines, and
- advise the Membership Secretary / Dating Officer within 14 days of the vehicle being sold.
