When can I drive my Historic Registered Vehicle?

Historic registered vehicles on the “Old System” can be driven to any official Toymods Car Club meeting, cruise or event. Vehicles may attend any event by other registered car clubs or associations, to which an official written invitation has been received by the Toymods Car Club Inc.

Historic registered vehicles may also be taken for periodic maintenance and/or service runs. These include runs required for vehicle inspection and repair as well as just to keep the vehicle in sound working order.

With prior approval, Historic Registered vehicles may also be used for weddings and formal occasions.

Vehicles on the “60 Day log book trial” can be driven for personal use on 60 days of the year. As per the Logbook text this includes your Maintenance runs. but not your attendance to club events. It is 60 days Personal use.

NOTE: The 60 Day trial is expected to undergo regular changes and updates so please do your best to stay informed of the current rules and legislation. If in doubt check the RMS website or ask your Toymods Plates Registrar. There is a LOT of misinformation circulating about this trial.

What vehicle movements need to be recorded ?

All vehicle movements need to be recorded in the vehicle Log Book or the Toymods Historic movement register.

All H plated vehicle’s attending official club events need to log the intended trip in the online Historic Vehicle Movement Form. These are electronically logged and time stamped so are great protection for you should you be pulled over or be involved in an accident.

For vehicles on the traditional H plates scheme all vehicle movements (including Maintenance trips) must be logged via the Toymods Historic Vehicle Movement Form prior to the vehicle journey.

Historic Vehicle Movement Form

While we do monitor all forms that get submitted (In real time) we rely on you to evaluate if the journey you are about to take is appropriate. If you are not sure the trip you want to take is appropriate then questions regarding the trips approval can be sent by email or via phone call/SMS. See contact details below.

Owners of vehicles on the 60 day log book trial are allowed an additional 60 Days when it is driven for personal use. They simply need to enter the Vehicle journey in the RMS supplied “Log Book”

# Your Log Book should be completed BEFORE you take the Journey.
# If you are attending a CLUB EVENT then you need to fill in the Movement form, not your log book.
