From 31st January 2015 changes to the Club Plate system have been implemented by ViCRoads. The new system is as follows.
The Porsche Club of Victoria is registered with VicRoads for the VLCPS. The Club Administrator for the scheme is Garry Saber who is also the club’s authorised signatory and will sign the VicRoads form to confirm membership for PCV members.
A Road Worthy Certificate is required for all new applications to VicRoads. Note: A Letter of Safety is no longer an option for new CPS applications.
Members now need to provide us with the following before we can sign-off on a Club Permit Application Form.

New Permit Applications
VicRoads requires that the PCV authorised signature is entered on the permit application notice. Therefore, your VLCPS application including RWC should be sent to Club Permit Scheme, Porsche Club Victoria, P.O. Box 2465, Rowville, Vic, 3178. Enclose with it a stamped envelope addressed back to you for return when signed.
At the time of application you must also send digital photos as per the VicRoads requirements to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A vehicle becomes eligible for Club Permit on the last day of the Build Month when the vehilcle is 25 years old. Proof of the Build Month is required if the CPS application is made during the 25th year.
On receipt of your new CPS plates please notify PCV of your new registration number via email email@example.com

Calculating The Vehicle's Manufacture Date
If your vehicle is fitted with an Australian compliance plate, the plate date is the date of manufacture.
If your vehicle is fitted with an import compliance plate or has no compliance plate, the date of manufacture is determined by a manufactures build plate, a chassis number or documentary evidence from the manufacturer’s records
If your vehicle does not meet either of the above requirements, VicRoads may determine the manufacture date based on information sourced from their registration database, historical data, or evidence from their vehicle safety and compliance expert.
Our operating agreement with VicRoads and authorisation is here.
VicRoads requires that the PCV authorised signature is entered on the permit renewal notice. Therefore, your VLCPS renewal should be sent to Club Permit Scheme, Porsche Club Victoria, P.O. Box 2465, Rowville, Vic, 3178. Enclose with it a stamped envelope addressed to you for return when signed. Alternatively include a stamped envelope addressed to VicRoads, along with a Cheque, Money Order or Credit Card details for the VLCPS fee. Garry will sign on behalf of PCV and then forward the permit renewal on to VicRoads. The form also requires your signature, so be sure to sign it as the permit holder as well.
If you allow your PCV membership to lapse, you will then be driving an unregistered vehicle.
PCV is required to notify VicRoads of anyone with a PCV-auspices Club Permit vehicle who becomes un-financial. If you have a PCV-auspices Club Permit vehicle, it is important that you pay your membership fees or your vehicle becomes unregistered, that is, illegal to operate on the roads.
If an owner has not received their CPS renewal notice within say 2 weeks of expiry then they should take the receipt of their previous payment to a VicRoads office and request that a new renewal notice be generated. VicRoads also need to be advised of any changes of address for CPS vehicles.
It is also a requirement of the scheme that PCV notifies VicRoads of any miss use of CPS Log Books and/or CPS registered vehicles.
