Use of Vehicles under Conditional Registration For Essential Purpose


It has come to our attention that the NSW Police have pulled over a number of vehicles on conditional registration (H, D or J plates) and questioned whether their use is for essential purposes.

The Council of Motor Clubs (CMC) has sought clarification from the Policy Branch of Transport for NSW (RMS) and has received the following advice.


As long as club members follow NSW State restrictions, such as only going direct to the mechanic, the shops, medical practitioners, pharmacies or to work they are allowed to use HVS and CVS vehicles WITH the filled out log book.


That does NOT include trips to try the car out or charge the battery etc.


If you have not opted for the log book scheme then you cannot use the vehicle as there are no club events and going for a maintenance run is not considered an essential use.
