Change to Club Plate Scheme
One of the services The Maserati Club offers to all of our members is the administration and management of the VicRoads Club Plate Scheme. As you would appreciate, certification by VicRoads as an authorised club plate scheme participant requires careful and diligent management of vehicle qualification, registration and ownership details.
Until now this service has been provided at no additional charge to all Maserati Club members. For example, over the last 12 months we have had to procure a significant IT platform to conform to the VicRoads requirements. It has also been adding a substantial workload on our volunteers who administer it for us all.
We do all enjoy owning and driving our classic cars on the Club Plate Scheme, and we are very privileged that VicRoads does offer it. The Maserati Club is committed to continue to offer this service for our members, but we will be forced to pass on a small cost to each member using the Club Plate Scheme.
Increases in the number of VicRoads club plates registered with the club, coupled with changes to the law regulating the club plate scheme has made administering the scheme by MCA committee volunteers unmanageable.
After careful thought and consideration, the committee resolved to continue providing MCA the club plate scheme service as we recognise and understand the value that MCA members get from the scheme.
