CLASSIC VEHICLE SCHEME - CVS

In NSW the conditional registration of MODIFIED VEHICLES 30 years and older is referred to as the Classic Vehicle Scheme (CVS). The CVS was developed in consultation with the Council of Heritage Motor Clubs (CHMC)

The CHMC is an APPROVED ORGANISATION (AO) with TfNSW to process CVS registrations applications from members of its affiliated whose vehicles do not fit within the guidelines for Historic Vehicle HVS registration.  .   

Applications for new CVS registration or renewals must be agreed to and signed off by an RMS Approved Organisation before processing by SfNSW. The Approved Organisation is the only contact for all CVS matters, enquiries to TfNSW will be redirected to an Approved Organisation (AO), i.e. the CHMC.

For CVS applications to be processed the Club must be a current affiliated member of CHMC and club members applying for CVS must be current members of the CHMC affiliated club. Not all CHMC clubs participate in the CVS - it is their choice.

Enquiries regarding CVS can be directed to the CHMC RMS Liaison Officer                  CVS TfNSW information on CVS can be found at Classic Vehicle Registration and Requirements 

NOTE 1: DEFINITION OF A CLASSIC VEHICLE FOR cvs rEGISTRATION

FOR THE PURPOSES OF THE RMS CLASSIC VEHICLE SCHEME  - "a CLASSIC VEHICLE MEANS A VEHICLE WHICH HAS BEEN MODIFIED FROM ITS AUTHENTIC OR ORIGINAL CONDITION, BUT WHICH DOES NOT REQUIRE AN ENGINEER'S CERTIFICATION, OTHER THAN FOR REASONABLE OR SAFETY MODIFICATIONS, TO MAKE IT ELIGIBLE FOR REGISTRATION FOR PUBLIC ROAD USE".
IN GENERAL TERMS THIS MEANS THAT Chmc WILL NOT RECOMMEND HEAVILY MODIFIED VEHICLES, REPLICAS OR INDIVIDUALLY CONSTRUCTED VEHICLES FOR INCLUSION IN THE CVS. IT WILL LIMIT ITS APPROVAL TO VEHICLES WHICH ARE MODIFIED, AND WHICH MAY REQUIRE VSCCS CERTIFICATION, BUT WHICH MAINTAIN THE GENERAL APPEARANCE AND PERFORMANCE OF ORIGINAL AND AUTHENTIC VEHICLES OF THE SAME MODEL RUN. THIS AMENDMENT IS REFLECTED IN THE CHMC'S CVS REGISTRATION APPLICATION DOCUMENTS.

NOTE 2:  CHMC DOES NOT CHARGE any $$ FEES $$

FOR PROCESSING & APPROVING CVS REGISTRATION APPLICATIONS For MEMBERS OF ITS AFFILIATED CLUBS.
