Your annual club membership lapses on the 30th June each calendar year.  If you fail to renew your club membership, or if you renew club membership but fail to have your log book stamped and updated by the LOG BOOK SECRETARY by the 30th June your car automatically is deemed to be unregistered and uninsured.

Heavy fines apply and cancellation of your Club Registration.


 Seat Belts / Child Restraints:

There have been rule changes governing the use of seat belts in Club Registered vehicles.

In summary the rule changes mean:

  1.  That, if your club registered vehicle is fitted with seat belts then these seat belts must be worn at all times.

  2.  If passengers in your club registered vehicle are under the age of 7 years, then they must be restrained by a correctly fitted, approved child restraint.

  3.  It follows that if you plan to have children under the age of 7 years travel in your club registered vehicle seat belt anchorage points must be permanently fitted in an approved manner.


For a full statement on these changes please refer to the communication from The Department of Transport Planning and Infrastructure HERE
