Thanks

Hi there - no, AEVA is not a CAMS registered car club, which I believe makes it ineligible for applying to maintain a Club Rego register. What sort of car are you wanting to CH plate? Would it be possible to join a car club for the marque and CH plate it through them?
Cheers

Also, last time I checked we didn't meet the requirements to actually be eligible to join CAMS.

You don't have to be a CAMS (now called Motorsport Australia) affiliated club to be approved for the Club Permit Scheme.

However, you do need to go through quite a few hoops and a lot of paperwork with Vic Roads
https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/registr ... d-car-club

There is also quite a bit of work in running the Scheme

There's a lot of responsibility attached to running it because if anything goes wrong and someone's Permit is not valid, their vehicle will not be insured and they will receive a hefty fine for driving an unregistered vehicle.

By my rough measures, AEVA could do it, but it would require someone to put in the work to set up and maintain everything.

Hi there - speaking as the Vic branch secretary: for one branch to do that for (probably) one or 2 cars at most - it is way too much work to establish and maintain. (The cars after all must still be over 25 years old to be considered for a club permit).

BTW: I am a member of another car club that maintains such a register and it is a LOT of work for them to keep it up - and that is for unmodified and/or very slightly modified vehicles.

Re Vic branch taking it up: Given converted EVs are regularly changed and updated, the chances of running foul of the system are very high. (We might even fall into the M series plates and the additional level of scrutiny that requires). We would certainly have to insist that ANY modifications after the initial RWC and VASS certification date would have to be re-certified and a new VASS certificate issued. Not sure anyone would want to do that: would in fact be cheaper and simpler to maintain it on full reg.

Only exception would be for veteran EVs where they are maintained in original condition - but there aren't enough of them in Victoria to justify the amount of work running a club permit scheme involves.

Kind regards
