Club Permit Scheme (CPS)

To be read in conjunction with:

https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/registration/limited-use-permits/club-permit-scheme

To obtain Club Permit Registration with the MR2 Owners Club of Australia (VIC Branch) Inc. you need to be a financial member and commit to attend at least two Club events in your MR2 annually to have your VicRoads CPS Permit renewal signed by the Club each year.

We would like to meet you first, and we’re sure you would like to meet us, so before obtaining a CPS permit with us you must attend one Club Event or Meeting first.  Then you can contact the MR2 Club Permit Officer to arrange inspection and to have five dated photographs taken.

Also consider how often you use your MR2.  There are 45 day (an additional 45 days use can be purchased) and 90 day (maximum per year) club permits available.

Your MR2 VIN plate must indicate the car is over 25 years old to the month.

You need to be prepared to fill in a Log Book prior to using your MR2 every time you drive it on the road. Abuse of the system will result in your membership being cancelled and as a consequence your MR2 becomes unpermitted.

Obtain a current RWC.

Take with you:

  1. A current RWC (Since 31 January 2015, all vehicles built after 31 December 1948 require a RWC).  There is no need to take your MR2 to VicRoads.
  2. Proof of ownership may be asked for.  Take purchase receipts or Registration papers in your name.
  3. A current membership card or a letter to confirm financial membership of the VIC MR2 Club.
  4. The two completed VIC Roads forms.  NOTE: These forms need to be signed by us.  Bring the completed Forms, proof of ownership and RWC with you when your MR2 is inspected by the Club Permit Officer.

Go to VIC Roads, hand in your current number plates, you can keep personalised plates, pay the fee around $65 for 45 days use or $130 for 90 days use (as at January 2015). Fees vary according to CPI.  Fit your new plates.  That’s it. Oh! and notify your Insurance Company, there are substantial savings for CPS registered cars.

Note:  If your MR2 is modified beyond the VicRoads permitted modifications an Engineering Certificate or VASS is required.
