Club Registration

As a benefit for members the Club is able to support early model Landcruisers being on the road through the Club Registration scheme. As a club we are keen to see these vehicles restored and preserved. Further information for members is detailed below.

It is the vehicle owner’s responsibility to comply with all the conditions of historic registration. 

Historic Vehicle Registration (or Club Registration)

Significant changes were made to the Conditional Historic Vehicle Club Registration Scheme in July 2017. As a consequence of those changes the Toyota Landcruiser Club of Australia (SA) Inc. (TLCCSA) is now able to offer historic vehicle registration for its members. 

What is Historic Registration

1975 Ute
Historic Vehicle Registration is available for vehicles over 25 years of age as at 1st January in the year of manufacture, subject to some conditions. Historic registration is significantly cheaper than regular registration but restricts the use of the vehicle to a maximum of 90 days per year. There are also categories that cover left hand drive vehicles and street rods;however TLCCSA will only deal with historic vehicles over 25 years of age. 

Qualifying For Registration

The primary focus of TLCCSA remains unchanged in that it is a club for members who have an interest in 4 wheel driving. The historic registration scheme is offered as an additional benefit for existing club members. As such a member can take advantage of the scheme from December 2018 when TLCCSA was admitted to the Scheme. 

How To get Historic Registration

Be an eligible member of TLCCSA (membership name and vehicle ownership must match) Attend a club meeting with your latest registration papers for the vehicle in question The Club Historic Vehicle Registration Officer (HVRO) when satisfied as to vehicle age will then issue a MR 334 form. The vehicle owner takes the completed MR 334 form to Services SA to have the vehicle registered as an historic vehicle. (A vehicle owner should ensure any modifications to the vehicle meet the conditions for club historic registration) The member must then attend a later TLCCSA Club meeting with the historic registration certificate (and a copy for club records) at which point the HVRO will issue a log book. (Cost currently $5).

How to Maintainain Historic Registration and what is required for Annual Renewal

To continue to qualify for your conditional historic vehicle registration you must remain a current member of the Club. The club is required to certify to Services SA by 30 June annually that members with historic vehicle registration are current members of the Club. As such membership renewal must occur before 31 July each year. Failure to renew membership in time will result in the Club advising Services SA (Registrar of Motor Vehicles) to cancel or suspend your registration. In order to comply with legislation once membership is renewed you will need to have your log book endorsed and will need to provide the HVRO with:
1. Current log book
2. Current registration papers
3. Receipt/proof of membership renewal payment. 

Transferring Clubs

If your vehicle is currently on historic registration with another club and you wish to move to TLCCSA then you will need (apart from being a TLCCSA member) to
1. Have your existing club cancel your log book by ruling out or removing unused pages
2. Present that cancelled book and evidence of Historic registration to TLCCSA HVRO ( copy of registration is required for club records)
3. TLCCSA HVRO will issue a new log book and a new Form MR334
4. You need to lodge the MR334 Form with Services SA so they are aware of the new club alignment. 

Other Important Notes

Queries on historic registration should be directed to the Club not Services SA. The Club is a member of the Federation of Historic Motoring Clubs SA who can assist with technical difficulties Whenever you drive you must have your log book with you and must fill out the trip detail before you get on the road. (Even to get petrol or to drive to your mechanic) If you sell your vehicle you must return your log book to the club for cancellation, as historical vehicle registration is not transferable Historic Vehicle Owners should review and comply with the SA Government Club Registration Code of Practice Effective 1 July 2017 Heavy Penalties apply for contravention of the conditions of Historic Registration.
