If you want to operate a rally vehicle, you'll need to apply for a conditional registration under the rally vehicle scheme (RVS).
What you'll need
- the vehicle details
- licensed certifier report (if required in the technical manual)
- vehicle import approval (if applicable)
- your details as the registered operator of the rally vehicle
- your proof of identity, such as a NSW driver licence
- proof of registration entitlement, such as an original receipt for the vehicle
- the Application for Conditional Registration form
- the Rally Vehicle Declaration form.
How to apply
- Download, complete, print and sign the Application for Conditional Registration – PDF
- Download, complete and print the Rally Vehicle Declaration – PDF and have it signed by the responsible person of an approved organisation, either AMSAG Incorporated or Confederation of Australian Motor Sport Ltd
- Gather all the required documentation and submit your application in person at a service centre.
As the registered operator of a rally vehicle, you must:
- be a financial member of an approved organisation (either AMSAG Incorporated or Confederation of Australian Motor Sport Ltd)
- hold a class C or higher driver licence
- hold a competition licence (if you're an individual) or an entrants/competitors licence (if a corporation).
The vehicle must have passed an inspection as an eligible rally vehicle within the last 42 days.
Things to keep in mind...
- Rally vehicles under the RVS may only operate on roads and road related areas:
- during competition and liaison/transport stages of a sanctioned rally event
- during testing of competition stages by approved organisation officials for a sanctioned rally event
- during official training sessions for a sanctioned rally event
- during a sanctioned public display and/or promotional activity
- for course checking/establishment/survey of rally route during preparation of a rally event (except if the rally vehicle’s electronic stability control has been disabled or removed)
- for servicing and maintenance of the rally vehicle and associated testing under normal road rules and speed limits, and
- when driving to and from a sanctioned rally event and accommodation/place of residence.
- Conditional registration isn't transferrable. The vehicle's new owner/operator has to apply for a new conditional registration. If a rally vehicle is sold or disposed of, you have to surrender the conditional registration.
- You'll be able to pick up your rally vehicle number plates when they arrive at your designated service centre. If you need them sooner, visit Richmond service centre
