Conditional Registration Scheme

The Mercedes-Benz Club of NSW proudly participates in the Conditional Registration System under the jurisdiction of Service New South Wales. This system allows for the conditional registration of unmodified historic vehicles over 30 years of age. Additionally, through our collaboration with the Council of Motor Clubs, we extend our participation to the Classic Vehicle Scheme, catering to modified vehicles exceeding 30 years of age.

Furthermore, our club is registered for the ongoing logbook trial, providing an extra 60 days per year for personal use. However, all such usage must be logged before embarking on your journey.

Conditions for Conditional Registration

Service New South Wales now mandates that only original documentation be counter-signed by the Mercedes-Benz Club of NSW. This is essential to verify current financial membership and ensure vehicle compliance with the relevant Conditional Registration Scheme. At the same time, physical vehicle inspection is preferred; if it is unfeasible, comprehensive digital photos must be provided to demonstrate compliance.

Completion of paperwork and payment to Service New South Wales must be made by the registration due date. Additionally, members must annually provide a current authorised Safety Certificate (Pink Slip) or (Blue Slip) per the requirements of each applicable scheme for each vehicle.

To ensure compliance with our obligations, members must promptly provide details of their conditional registration to the club, enabling the inclusion of vehicle details in our database.

Please note that Service New South Wales can alter scheme requirements. The owners are responsible for remaining familiar with and compliant with the scheme, as stiff penalties apply for non-compliance.

Operation Requirements

According to the Roads & Maritime Services, the Certificate of Approved Operations issued by RMS at registration must always be carried in the car.

On logbook days, completion of the logbook is mandatory before departure. Each day is 24 hours from entry; part days are not permissible.

Membership Compliance

Membership must always remain current to comply with Roads & Maritime Services’ requirements. Failure to maintain financial membership status will result in the vehicle(s) not being registered for driving on public roads, and compulsory third-party insurance will not be applicable.

  2. Vehicle Eligibility: Ensure your car is 30 years old.
  3. Original Condition: Confirm your car’s original condition. If modified, a different registration scheme called the Classic Scheme is applicable. Refer to the provided link for details.

  5. Documentation: Obtain an RMS 1259 Historic Registration Declaration form. The link is at the top of the page.

  7. Submission: Send the completed form and a copy of the pink slip to a Historic Plate Registrar (details below). Include a Stamped self-addressed envelope for processing.
  8. Office Visit: Attend a Service NSW office with the 1259 form. Complete a 4-page registration form (1246 Application for Conditional Registration). Refer to the provided link for details.
