CLASSIC VEHICLE SCHEME - CVS

In NSW the conditional registration of MODIFIED VEHICLES 30 years and older is referred to as the Classic Vehicle Scheme (CVSThe CVS was developed in consultation with stakeholders from the car movement including the Council of Heritage Motor Clubs 

  • The CHMC is an APPROVED ORGANISATION (AO) with TfNSW to process CVS registrations applications from members of its affiliated clubs. CHMC remains committed to the preservation of "Day One" and authentic vehicles and the Historic Vehicle Scheme (HVS) and participates in CVS for the benefit of clubs members with vehicles that do not fit within the guidelines for HVS registration.  
  • Management of the CVS requires that applications for CVS registration or renewal must agreed to by an RMS Approved Organisation before processing by a Service NSW office. The Approved Organisation is the only contact for all CVS matters. Clubs or members enquiring direct to the RMS on CVS matters will be redirected to an Approved Organisation (AO), in this case the CHMC.
  • All CHMC clubs have current CVS information for the processing of registration applications through the CHMC as the club's relevant Approved Organisation.
  • Not all CHMC clubs wish to or need to participate in the CVS - it is their choice.
  • Clubs must be current financial affiliated members of CHMC for CVS applications to be processed and members applying for CVS must be current financial members of a CHMC affiliated club.
  • Enquiries regarding CVS through the CHMC can be directed to the CHMC RMS Liaison Officer or the Assistant Secretary
