For Club registrars – How to handle NEW classic vehicle scheme applications.
The CMC is an approved organisation (AO) for CVS registrations, your club members require stamps and signatures from the CMC. We are one of four such AOs and we cover all CMC member clubs for CVS registrations.
The applicant should fill in sections 1 and 2 of the Classic Vehicle Declaration (Transport NSW No. 1835).
Please do not fill in or sign section 3 of that form. That is for the AO which in this case is CMC.
The primary club, i.e., your club, should simply stamp the lower right hand box to signify that the applicant is a bona fide member of your club, and his or her vehicle is acceptable to your club.
Without that stamp, we will not process the application. The stamp should be legible for all to read, as Transport NSW is very strict on such things.
A new document has been introduced from Jan 2023. The CMC CVC Check List is now compulsory so that we know that your club and the owner of the vehicle are confirming that all is in compliance with the CVS rules and regulations. This form must be completed by the owner and the club and it must be with the set of documents when they arrive at CMC CVS department.
Transport NSW insist that to start off CVS, an AUVIS or Unregistered Vehicle Inspection Report (blue slip), must be obtained for the vehicle, no matter what registration the vehicle is currently on. This isn’t our rule, it comes from Transport NSW, and you should note that not all authorised inspection stations (AIS) can do these.
When any of your fellow club members wish to register their vehicles on the CVS, please ask them NOT to send us the original of the AUVIS or blue slip. A photocopy is sufficient for our records.
This avoids the relatively expensive document going astray in the mail. Note also that they only last for 42 days, so promptness is required.
We need the Classic Vehicle Declaration (No. 1835) filled in as above, a copy of the blue slip, the new check list and the payment.
The fee is $25.00 for the processing, and included in that is a domestic letter with tracking envelope for return to the member. This then gives us a way to find documents should they go astray.
We will no longer be providing express post envelopes as they are expensive, and there isn’t a guarantee of the speed of that service anymore.
You can pay the $25.00 fee by cheque or money order made payable to CMC CVS, or you can EFT the funds to :-
BSB 633 000
Please identify the payment in the reference field with a surname and initials.
The postal address is PO Box 174 Bexley NSW 2207
It would be wise to save this document and discard all others about CVS to avoid mix ups.
