Project or club classic and muscle cars are often bought unregistered. Can you drive them home legally?
Yes you can, so long as your new club car or weekend cruiser meets the basic roadworthy safety requirements as set out on the UVP application page of vic roads.
Your U what? UVP is unregistered vehicle permit.
For those long time car guys and motor heads this is old news but to any newbies or those experienced car guys never put in this situation before its fantastic news. Driving your new baby home is the best way without doubt!
It literally takes 5 minutes online or a 5 min phonecall if you prefer and its done. Drive away.
As far as I know every state has them.
For Victorian residents simply click here to order your UVP and follow the prompts. I promise its really quick and really easy. All you need to get one is:
- basic car make color etc
- vin or chassis number ( and its savvy enough to deal with older cars that dont have the modern 17 number vins)
- credit card
- make sure the car meets their requirements which they outline as you go.
Each state is slightly different in costs and limits etc but in general one week is about $50 in Victoria. You can get them for single trips or for up to a month to allow for multiple trips for rego purposes
Hope this helps you enjoy your next muscle car, streetcar or classic purchase quicker.
Hi I am Brett, a fellow car lover. I have a longheld passion for unique cars of all models and makes but particularly of the 60's, 70's and 80's. I started the MCCC site as I have finally worked to a point in life I can purchase cars that I think are special. Because I found I was buying more than we could store or afford to keep, I had to part with some. This process continues as I cannot resist buying something special when I find it.
