Club Permit Plates

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.

The club plate service will continue on the basis that scheme participants pay a small fee of $25.00 per vehicle per year, 6 or more plates will be capped at $150 per year.  We note that we have kept the fee as low as possible.  We have also chosen not to cover the cost of administering the scheme by increasing membership subscriptions so that the only club plate scheme participants who enjoy the benefits of the scheme pay for it.

New rules for MCA Club Plate Scheme Registration

When you go to renew your membership for 2018 (there is no membership fee increase in 2018, as with the previous few years) on the new Club website, (www.maserati.org.au) there is now a box to be ticked if you have vehicles on club plates.

Please note this charge applies to all members with cars on club plates including life members. Life members need to go thru the same procedure but of course do not pay a membership fee.

This will then lead you through the procedure required, which is quite simple, and it will calculate the $25.00 per car, and add that to the total of your membership fee.

There is also a place for acceptance of the MCA Club Plate scheme terms and conditions.  These terms have been added as part of our new website and in response to regulation changes.  Please make sure that you read the terms and conditions carefully as by registering your car(s) on club plates via the MCA you are representing to the MCA that you have read and agree to the terms.


For first time Users of the Club Plate Scheme:

We require a roadworthy certificate and the 5 photographs on a USB stick as required by Vic Roads to be sent in with your application to Andrew Ogg.

The club’s approved roadworthy Inspector is Andrew Spiteri at V&A Spiteri, and they will arrange an inspection at their premises. If in their opinion the car is safe to be driven on the road you will receive a RWC for you to deliver with your photographs on USB and your completed Vic Roads application forms to Andrew Ogg . He will inspect the vehicle and fill out the necessary paperwork and return it to you for presentation by you to Vic Roads for registration of your vehicle in the ordinary way.
