    Special Interest Registration for SLOW members

    Given that our club is an historic vehicle based group, many of our member's vehicles are eligible to be registered under the Qld. Concessional Registration Scheme, as they will, in the general case, comply with the requirements as prescribed by the Qld Department of Transport.

    Please note : Concessional Registration is subject to the following.....

    Vehicles registered under the scheme have certain limitations placed on their use. This is reflected in the reduced fees and compulsory third party insurance premium. Registered operators must confine their vehicle’s use to:
    a. Participating in rallies organised by incorporated vehicle clubs
    b. Participating in processions for which a Special Events Permit has been issued under the Transport
    Operations (Road Use Management –Accreditation and Other Provisions) Regulation 2005
    c. Exhibiting the vehicle in displays, fetes or similar functions conducted for religious, charitable or educational purposes
    d. Ceremonial purposes (weddings, formals) involving immediate family members provided this is not done for fee or reward. Immediate family means parents, grandparents, sons, daughters, grandchildren but not extended family relationships such as nephews and nieces
    e. Preparing for, proceeding to, and returning from the above activities
    f. Direct travel to and from an Approved Inspection Station (AIS) for the purposes of obtaining a safety
    certificate before offering the vehicle for sale
    g. Travel in order to have the vehicle repaired. There is no distance restriction in these circumstances
    however, such travel must be reasonable and justifiable by the vehicle operator
    h. Road testing within a 15 kilometre radius from the place where the vehicle is garaged. The purpose of
    the travel must be to road test the vehicle following repair or restoration and not for any other purpose. This does not include use as a means of transport

    What are the requirements?

    Persons applying for Concessional Special Interest Registration need to

    a. Follow the standard registration procedures for a vehicle as well as completing a Vehicle Registration Concession Application (form F3937) and providing the following documents as proof of eligibility:

    b. Club membership: Evidence of current membership with an incorporated vehicle club or association must be provided at the time of application for the concession. Vehicles other than historic ambulances and fire-fighting equipment vehicles must be registered in the name of the club member (individuals only).

    c. Historic vehicle and dating certificate: A dating officer (or club official) of an incorporated vehicle club or association must inspect the vehicle to certify the vehicle’s authenticity and year of manufacture, that is, no structural modifications have been made that would deem it as manufactured at the date it was modified. This certificate must be on club letterhead or other official club documentation and include the chassis number or vehicle identification number.

    Eligible vehicles types

    Historic vehicles (light and heavy vehicles) of at least 30 years of age , Street Rods (pre 1949) and historic ambulances and fire fighting equipment (less than 30 years old but as part of a specialised club)

    So, for members of the Series Landy Owners Inc, we can offer such registration to your Land Rover or Rover derivative where such vehicles are....

    1. At least 30 years old.
    2. In standard guise or with "period" modifications...eg. Holden equipped vehicles still qualify as this was a period modification.

    Any members wishing to apply for Concessional Special Interest Registration are encouraged to contact SLOW's registration officer, Mick Kilmartin. (aka Killer)

    Hey Killer, just a quick question. I am going to be joining the Brisbane Land Rover Owners Club for a Series 2a SWB I just finished rebuilding and was also interested in getting a concessional rego. The problem is I have fittet a defender 110 fron on her so as to fit my ford motor and gearbox as well as a 3 coil radiator. Will this make mean I cannot get a certificate from the club?

    Depends on the club regulations regarding modifications, Slow permits "period modifications" ie mods that would have been carried out on a vehicle 30 years ago, such as an engine transplant, but a later body may be difficult, we would neeed to discuss it at a committee meeting. I suggest you contact BLROC if that is the club you would like to join and ask them the question.

    Cheers, Mick.
