     Historic Vehicle Clubs are NOT Museums - and old vehicles are NOT ornaments.
             They best express their character and bring greatest pleasure when they are used for what they were always made to do.

Welcome to our site.
     
The Berrima District Historic Vehicle Club is situated in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW and accepts all makes and models of historic vehicles, with the emphasis on authenticity. 
 
Membership in a recognised club is compulsory to obtain a restrictive “Conditional Registration” under the 
NSW HISTORIC CONDITIONAL REGISTRATION SCHEME (HCRS),
 which then allows you to use your vehicle on recognised club “runs”.

Other restrictions with this permit are that the vehicle is as close to original as possible, however some safety features such as blinkers, seat belts and stoplights may be fitted. The vehicle is inspected by one of our club designated inspection officers annually without charge. Vehicles may also be used for journeys necessary for servicing the vehicle within a short distance from where the vehicle is normally garaged. Special journeys can be undertaken if notice is given to the club’s “Plates Registrar” or other club designated recorder. Vehicles may also take part in processions, displays and rallies provided the club has received an official invitation. Vehicles may be used for charitable purposes, weddings or public relations provided that the club has granted permission and that neither the club nor the member receives any money or other remuneration. Prohibited use includes joyrides, shopping trips, social functions (except when declared a club event), advertising for personal gain and activities of a similar nature. More details can be found here (Council of Motor Clubs) and here RMS. The latter is suggested reading as there is quite a bit of mis-information circulating regarding conditions of use etc.

NB For RMS purposes, a historic vehicle must be 30 years of age or older as from the year of manufacture.
