Conditional Vehicle Registration

Introduction to Historic Vehicle Scheme (HVS) & Classic Vehicle Scheme (CVS)

ZCCS Inc. is a Transport for NSW recognised Historic Vehicle Club, and as such our members can avail themselves of Conditional Registration for their complying vehicles, under the Club’s banner. The scheme is commonly referred to as Club Rego, the Historic Vehicle Scheme (HVS), or the Classic Vehicle Scheme (CVS). There are two schemes available to members the Historic Vehicle scheme (HVS) and the Classic Vehicle scheme (CVS) which operate under Conditional Vehicle Registration.

The (HVS) scheme is designed for cars that are in principal standard and may have period options whilst the (CVS) scheme is for modified vehicles. We have members that currently utilise each of these schemes and the registrars can advise where your vehicle fits.

Owners of Z cars that are financial members can also avail themselves of registration for their eligible non Z cars. Our registrars can advise you of details and requirements.

To obtain Conditional Vehicle Registration you must be a financial member of a recognised CMC club. This is a requirement from Transport for NSW. Failure to maintain your financial member status can result in significant fines as your vehicle is no longer covered by CTP insurance nor is it registered. Conditional registration is exactly that conditional upon users complying with the rules.

Ideally as a member of the ZCCS you should support and participate in club events so as to gain greatest value from your membership and this very generous scheme sponsored by the ZCCS.

Under the HVS (Historic Vehicle Scheme) vehicles are permitted to have “period options and accessories” which are defined and accepted at the discretion of the Club and Transport for NSW. In order to comply with this requirement, the ZCCS Registrars produce and define what are genuine “period options and accessories” accepted by ZCCS for Historic Vehicle Registration requirements under the scheme:
