Welcome

The Birregurra Motor Enthusiasts Club is a club for anyone interested in classic cars, motorcycles, trucks, tractors, basically anything with a motor!

We conduct our own rallies and take part in other local events to assist with fundraising and community projects.

Our pride and joy is the club’s 1927 Federal Knight bus which was used in the 1930s to carry passengers between Birregurra and Lorne.

We have restored this bus to its former glory and now proudly use it to help raise funds to support the local Birregurra community.

Club Permits

What is this scheme?

The Birregurra Motor Enthusiasts Club is fortunate to be part of this scheme. The Club Permit Scheme is administered by Vic Roads and is not for regular car registration.To ensure we comply with all requirements of the scheme we have centralised the process. The Registrar Mr Ronald Elsbury will manage all permit applications and renewals. Your details and your car details will be recorded on the club database and the club permit register so that we can supply the information to Vic Roads as required and ensure correct governance relating to the scheme.

How do I participate?

To participate you must be a financial member of The Birregurra Motor Enthusiasts Club Inc.

The Club Registrar Mr Ronald Elsbury, is the authorised club signatory for the scheme. Bruce Bethune, Linton Cox and Kade Richens are also available to authorise club permits.

What does a club permit mean?

The club permit that allows eligible members to drive an unregistered vehicle subject to the terms and conditions of the permit scheme.

A club permit can be issued to the following vehicles in the following categories:
Veteran vehicles – manufactured before 1 January 1919
Vintage vehicles – manufactured after 31 December 1918 and before 1 January 1931
Classic and Historic vehicles – manufactured after 31 December 1930, but more than 25 years before the date of the application for a club permit.

A windscreen label will be issued to assist in identifying vehicles operating with a current permit.

How do I apply for a new club permit for an eligible car?

Financial members of motoring clubs that have been approved by VIC ROADS are can apply for either a 45 or 90-day permit.

A logbook is issued to permit holders to record the use of the vehicle over the permit period. A logbook entry must be made each day that the vehicle is used (unless the vehicle is within 100 metres of the garaged address).

A logbook must be carried in the vehicle at all times the vehicle is in use.

The owner of the car must be a member of Birregurra Motor Enthusiasts Club.

If your car meets the permit’s condition, follow the instructions in the form Apply for, or Renew Permit available below.
