The Sydney Datsun Club Inc is a Roads and Maritime recognised historic vehicle club, allowing our members access to the Historic Vehicle Schemes, Historic Vehicle Scheme – HVS & Classic Vehicle Scheme – CVS.


HVS – Historic vehicles must be as close to original condition as possible, with no alterations except for safety features such as seatbelts and turn indicators, or period accessories and options if desired.

CVS – Classic vehicles can be modified however must comply with all RMS rules


Before you enquire with the SDC about Historic registration, we recommend you familiarise yourself with the conditions and information made available on the RMS website: http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roads/registration/get-nsw-registration/historic-vehicles/index.html

The best way of finding out more after that, or to start the process of putting your vehicle on one of the schemes, is to come along to an SDC event. To assist the process, be sure to bring along any relevant forms and information as suggested by the RMS website, this includes vehicle declaration, Pink/Blue Slip and ideally bring the vehicle along or detailed photos of it (inside and out including engine bay). Some additional steps are required for the CVS, including Compliance/Engineer Certificate, please enquire about these. Note that both schemes do require processing time and you may encounter hurdles during the application process, please respect that this may take some time to complete.

If approved by our club historic plates registrar, the completed declaration should be taken to the RMS along with your license, a completed Application for Conditional Registration form, and if not already registered under your own name, proof of vehicle ownership (receipt).

Members of the scheme are expected to be active in club events, including monthly meetings.
