HVS & CVS NEWS
REGISTRATION MATTERS Q&A
Q. Who can drive a conditionally registered vehicle, e.g. a HVS or CVS registered vehicle?
A. To drive a historic or classic vehicle you need a vehicle licence appropriate to the vehicle type.
Any person who is the holder of the appropriate licence can legally drive a conditionally registered vehicle.
The driver DOES NOT have to be the operator/owner of the vehicle and DOES NOT have to be a member of a recognised historic vehicle club.
This also applies to drivers of vehicles on Log Book use and on Club Runs. The HVS & CVS Log Books are Vehicle Log Books, not Driver log books. (Ref. TFNSW - Historic vehicle: Registration, uses and equipment - Driver Licence ; see also Dinkum Oil # 21, Dec 2022

THE FUTURE FOR HISTORIC VEHICLES?
CHMC monitors issues, trends and developments that affect the future of historic vehicles and their operation. Our contacts, in Australia and internationally, include peak bodies in historic motoring, heritage and government agencies, through them we obtain factual and reliable information and have opportunities to advocate to them on the future of historic vehicles.
HOW MUCH CARBON DOES YOUR HISTORIC VEHICLE EMIT?
oPERATING hERITAGE aUSTRALIA HAS SHARED WITH US A TABLE FOR CALCULATING WHERE YOUR VEHICLE’S KM/YEAR INTERSECTS WITH ITS FUEL CONSUMPTION TO FIND CO2 EMITTED IN KG.
On the table, also online in CHMC's DINKUM OIL #23 MAY 2023 find where your vehicle’s km/year intersects with its fuel consumption to find CO2 emitted in kg. For example - based on the latest FIVA survey, Australian historic cars travel, on average, around 1200 km/yr and, if we assume a 14L/100km (20mpg) fuel consumption, then the amount of carbon dioxide produced is 504kg for the year.

THE COUNCIL OF HERITAGE MOTOR CLUBS NSW (CHMC) REPRESENTS AND PROMOTES HERITAGE, HISTORIC & CLASSIC VEHICLE and MAchinery CLUBS THROUGHOUT N.S.W.
Members of CHMC Affiliated Clubs own, preserve and restore cars, trucks, motorbikes, buses, tractors and antique machinery that is over 30 years old (and quite a few vehicles etc. that are original and well preserved "youngtimers" - i.e. just waiting till they are old enough to be classed as historic)
These members and their clubs share a common purpose, to keep alive the sights and sounds of the vehicles and machines that were an integral part of the automotive and transport history of Australia. Some of their vehicles are more than 100 years old, others are from the 1990s, some are rare, some are unique, and many are everyday vehicles from our nation's past. All are examples of our country's automotive culture and history.
Heritage and historic vehicles are not still here with us by accident, they survive because someone has cared for them through time, or someone has rescued them just in time.
