Concessional Registration in the ACT
Any VVCMCC member wishing to take out CRS on a machine should contact one of the District Assistant Registrars.
Their contact details are listed below.
The Registrar will tell you what is required and, if the machine is eligible, will issue you with the necessary form and a copy of the rules regarding the machine’s use.

Current information regarding the ACT Concessional Registration Scheme is available from the Council of ACT Motor Clubs
The following information relates to stamp duty payable on historically registered vehicles upon attendance at a Registration Office and when applying for "V" plates. Many of our members are being charged stamp duty because the RTA shop fronts are not aware of the rules.
This information was provided to the Club Committee by Road User Services (see purple font for the authority who released the information). Unless the owner seeks exemption under the rule via a Statutory Declaration, the RTA will charge stamp duty when he/she are entitled to the exemption.
While the rule does not specifically state motor cycles are included, the interpretation of the term "vehicle" applies equally to a car or a motor cycle. The link at the bottom will enable you to download a Statutory Declaration form to address the exemption. Members seeking Registration are encouraged to complete the form prior to attendance at the Registration Office and present it at the appropriate time.
"Duties Act 1999, Rule 9.2 Section 217
Duty under this chapter is not chargeable on an application to register a veteran, vintage or historic vehicle if:
* (a) The vehicle had not been registered under the Vehicle Registration Act or a corresponding law during the 2 years immediately before the application for registration; and
* (b) The registration would be the first registration of the vehicle after its restoration; and
* (c) On registration the vehicle would be allocated numberplates that carry the words veteran car, vintage car or historic car.
* (a) Within the period of 3 years immediately following a registration in relation to which no duty is chargeable under subsection (1) a further application is made for registration of the relevant vehicle under the Vehicle Registration Act; and
* (b) The vehicle is owned by the person who owned it at the time of the registration referred to in subsection (1); and
* (c) On the further registration the vehicle would not be allocated numberplates that carry the words veteran car, vintage car or historic car;
There is payable, on the first such further application for registration, an amount of tax equal to the tax that would have been payable on the first application for registration of the vehicle after its restoration if subsection (1) had not been applicable.
For this section, a vehicle is a veteran, vintage or historic vehicle if it is such a vehicle within the meaning of the regulations under the Vehicle Registration Act.
The applicant must complete a statutory declaration at Road User Services counters stating that the conditions below apply to the vehicle being registered.
* Is first being registered after restoration and has not been registered under the Road Transport (Vehicle Registration) Act 1999 or a corresponding law within the preceding two years from this date.
Will carry number plates that signify the vehicle is classified as Veteran, Vintage and Historic."
