The Club must notify ACT Urban Services whenever a member holding CRS with the Club is unfinancial - even a short lapse! So renew your membership before 28 February annually.

The CRS motorcycle owner has the sole responsibility for ensuring that their motorcycle is road worthy in all respects. The BMWMCC is only inspecting and attesting to the CRS eligibility of the motorcycle. If the owner has any concerns they should consult a competent and authorised mechanic. The BMWMCC will keep and required to share information on the owner and motorbike details to CACTMC and ACT Government authorities.
Detailed requirements are available on the Access Canberra website https://www.accesscanberra.act.gov.au/app/answers/detail/a_id/1801/~/veteran%2C-vintage-and-historic-motor-vehicle-registration#!tabs-1.
The owner is liable for any application fees and costs associated with CRS registration
For your motorcycle be used in a manner consistent with the spirit of the concessional registration scheme the Council of ACT Motor Clubs has determined that the maximum distance traveled within the ACT should not exceed 2,000 miles or 3,000 km on average each year. All use must be recorded in the owners 'log book'.
The ACT Urban Services has identified three main categories of use under the CRS;
The Club Registrar must be informed by the member prior to any of the last category of trips being undertaken, usually at a Club Meeting or by phone/email, to ensure no there is no abuse of the system.
The Veteran, Vintage & Classic Motorcycle Club has extended an invitation to ALL CRS owners to participate in their Club activities. You must record, carry and use a log book. This invitation is posted to the BMWMCC club website.
As the owner of a concessionally registered vehicle having ensured your motorcycle is roadworthy and has current concessional registration must obtain and use a logbook to record each and every use of your motorcycle.
This logbook record serves two purposes: it is a requirement of the concession granted by ACT Urban Services and provides a record of when, what for and how far you have used your concessionally registered motorcycle.
You must carry your log book on the motorcycle. In the event that you are challenged the logbook can be produced to substantiate the use of the vehicle. To meet this requirement, entries in the logbook must be legible in ink, for each day, and include:
The Club does not currently meet the requirements of the NSW Roads & Maritime Services to register CRS motorcycles in that state.
