A club permit allows an unregistered vehicle to be used on a highway during the period specified on the permit.
A club permit can be issued to the following vehicles in the following categories:
Veteran vehicles - manufactured before 1 January 1919
Vintage vehicles - manufactured after 31 December 1918 and before 1 January 1931
Classic & Historic vehicles manufactured after 31 December 1930, but more than 25 years before the date of the application for a club permit.
These categories can include trailers and modified vehicles such as street rods. Vehicles which are replicas of vehicles in the above categories may also be issued with a club permit.
A club permit allows vehicles to be used:
in connection with official activities organised by an association approved by VicRoads, such as car rallies, or in the preparation of the vehicle for such activities; or
if authorisation for special private use has been granted.
Club Permits are issued for 12 month periods and vehicles are issued with a specific club permit number plate.

in the case of a club historic vehicle that is not a street rod, a current certificate of roadworthiness or a letter from a scrutineer authorised by the club, stating that the vehicle is safe for use on the road
in the case of a application made in respect of a street rod, a Street Rod Inspection certificate issued by the Australian Street Rod Federation (ASRF), Technical Advisory Committee or a report from a VicRoads Vehicle Assessment Signatory establishing that the vehicle is in fact, a modified vehicle, ie modified in excess of the level prescribed in the Vehicle Standards Information No.8.
