VCCA Tasmania-An Overview
VCCA (Tasmania) has over 750 members Statewide with a collection of more than 1000 cars, motor cycles and trucks. We are organised within the state as three separate sections. That is, a self administered section in each of the three telephone districts. Each section has their own clubrooms. These are situated at Brighton in the South, Launceston in the North and Ulverstone in the North West. Each section has their own organising committee and run a very comprehensive events program throughout the year. Some events are organised in which all three sections take part together. These often attract over 100 vehicles. Details of Club Events are available by viewing our Calendar of Events left side of the screen.
Brief Background of VCCA
The Veteran Car Club of Australia (VCCA) is a group of people of all ages and from all walks of life who share a common interest in preserving old motor vehicles. In fact not just preserving, but restoring, maintaining and driving (and talking incessantly about them). The VCCA is of course an Australia wide organisation. The VCCA (Tas) Inc. was formed at a meeting in Hobart in 1956.
At present the cost of membership is $65 per year. This includes:
- An informative club magazine which we receive monthly by post.
- Use of Clubroom facilities.
- Eligibility to enter Club events/runs local and National
- Access to Club spares
-Access to the 'Members only' section of this web site
Club members are entitled to a low cost registration where our vehicles are only used for approved club activities. These vehicles are identified by a number plate beginning with the letters VC. To be club eligible and qualify for this registration a vehicle must be at least 30 years old and pass a roadworthiness inspection conducted by our club Technical Officers. Not all cars in the club have VC registration however. Some members choose to have their vehicle registered as a "Special Interest" (SI) or maintain full registration. The reasons for choosing different types of registration is a personal one. It costs less per year to register with a VC plate but you can only use it for test drives (special conditions apply) and listed Club runs. SI registration is more expensive. To register under SI the vehicle must be passed by a registered inspector. SI registration allows you to use the vehicle for 52 days a year. You are required to keep a logbook of use that is provided by the Transport Department.
