MG Car Club of South Australia CONDITIONAL REGISTRATION Hon Stephen Mullighan MP Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Tuesday, 9 May, 2017 Changes to conditional registration for historic vehicles scheduled for July 1 Widespread changes to the conditional registration scheme for historic vehicles will be scheduled to take effect from July 1 after they were approved by State Cabinet. The changes will remove red tape which prevents thousands of car club members from accessing the limited 90-day registration scheme, allowing more classic car lovers to enjoy their hobby out on the road. Under current laws, historic vehicles are not allowed to be significantly modified from their original design, meaning even slight modifications, such as a CD player or air conditioner, can prevent car owners from using the scheme. The same restriction also prevents historic left-hand drive vehicles which have had safety upgrades, such as better braking systems, from taking to the roads. Following consultation with key stakeholders such as car clubs, changes to the scheme will: classic vehicles, as well cosmetic enhancements -off manufacture date of 1979 to a rolling 30-year vehi- cle age spections, reducing the administrative burden on these groups -hand drive vehicles with safety improvements such updated braking systems This is another example of the State Government’s commitment to reducing red tape as part of the Simplify Day reforms. Background Conditional registration was introduced in 1992 and allows historic, left-hand and street rod vehicles to be driven on public roads for up to 90 days a year. There are currently 180 recognised motoring clubs in SA with approximately 15,000 vehicles registered under the conditional registration scheme, comprising a mix of historic, left-hand drive and street rod vehicles. For vehicles which are rarely driven, the current $90 annual cost is a significant sav- ing over regular registration costs, which can be up to $846 for 6-cylinder vehicles.
