New look historic and classic car log book now available
5 March 2021
Whether you drive a model T Ford or a GTHO, owners of historic and classic cars now have a new and convenient way to record the personal use of their vehicles for up to 60 days, outside of club-organised events.
Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said a new pocket-size log book is helping car enthusiasts to keep better records and streamlining the way they complete entries.
“The new paperback log book provides a great memento adding to the history of the car and a record of personal use for resale, with the multi-page log book replacing the old single page version that was introduced in 2015,” Mr Toole said.
“More than 50,000 car club members participate in the scheme – and we know they love hitting the road for events like this weekend’s AutoFest in Bathurst but they also want to drive their cars outside of these club organised events.”
The log book allows car enthusiasts to use their vehicle for personal use and maintenance for up to 60 days per year.
“During the trial of the log book in 2019 it was determined allowing these great old cars more time on the road led to more than $11 million in economic benefit and contributed to stronger and safer regions,” Mr Toole said.
“We promised back in 2019 to make the new log book a permanent feature of the scheme with stronger security features, and we’ve done just that. You can now record the use of your vehicle for posterity and compliance, whether it’s a heavy or light vehicle or a motorcycle.”
Historic and classic car owners will receive a new log book when they complete any new registration transaction.
