The special interest vehicle concession
The Department of Transport and Main Roads understands that some street rods and vintage cars are rarely used.
Therefore, a registration concession scheme for special categories of vehicles including motor vehicles, motorbikes and trailers was developed based on limited road use.
The following types of vehicles with either right-hand or left-hand drive may be registered under the scheme:
- vehicles that are at least 30 years old
- historic ambulances and historic fire-fighting equipment
- street rods (hot rods) — vehicles that have been modified for safe road use and have a body and frame built before 1949
- replicas of a motor vehicle, the body and frame of which were built before 1949, that is fitted with a modification plate, code LH9.
Vehicles fitted with a modification plate, code LH10 are not eligible for a special interest vehicle concession.
Failure to comply with the conditions of the special interest vehicle scheme is an offence and serious consequences may result.
