Recent Update October 2022:
To all Club Registrars/Secretaries of DoT Approved Clubs
The CMC has recently received queries from some member Club Registrars on the ability of Code 404 vehicle owners to log Impromptu Runs on consecutive days, as a means to drive or ride to an overnight destination and return the following day.
Section 8 of the Concessional License Code 404 Information Booklet describes the conditions of restricted use for a vehicle licensed under the Veteran/Vintage/Post Vintage/Invitation Class
Concessional Licensing Scheme, including an ‘impromptu event’ involving one or more vehicles over a one day period that is not a recorded club event but which must be recorded in the club’s run log. A clarification issued by the Department of Transport on the recording requirements for such ‘Impromptu Runs’ was forwarded to member Clubs on 29th November 2021. This reiterated that Impromptu Runs are a one day event, meaning that the run must commence and end on the same day.
The Department of Transport considers that logging Impromptu Runs on consecutive days for the purpose of engaging in a motoring activity that is in effect a multi-day event is inconsistent with the intent of the Code 404 scheme and is not an acceptable practice. The CMC has been advised that the Department’s auditing processes will include reviewing club run logs to identify any such unacceptable vehicle use.
The CMC Technical subcommittee is currently revising the Code 404 Information Booklet to update and clarify the scheme provisions and the revised version will be made available on approval by the Department of Transport.
