Vauxhall Owners Club of Australia (VOCA) Club Registration for South Australia

Registration is available to financial members of the Vauxhall Owners Club of Australia (SA Branch) for vehicles where 30 years or more have lapsed since January 1st of the year in which the vehicle was manufactured.  Any vehicle fitting this definition is eligible for the Scheme provided it can legally be driven on public roads in its current configuration.  Vehicles may be registered for one, two or three years.  The cost is significantly less than full registration and no stamp duty is payable on historic vehicles.  Club registration is not transferable.

Vehicles can be used up to a maximum of 90 days in each registration year and its use must be recorded in a log book before the commencement of each journey.  Logbooks are issued by a nominated VOCA club official.  Logbooks must be carried in the vehicle and produced for inspection on request by a police officer or authorised officer under the Act.  Vehicles may be used for club events and other purposes, but must not be used for hire, fare or reward.  After annual VOCA club membership fees are paid the member must have their logbook endorsed by a VOCA club official.  The VOCA club must notify the Registrar of Motor Vehicles of all members with club registration who do not renew their club membership.
