IMPORTANT NEWS for Members wanting to use their Conditionally Registered Vehicles

Web Administrator - Saturday, April 04, 2020
Important Message From the President
Use of Vehicles under Conditional Registration For Essential Purposes


I have had a few queries about use of vehicles on Conditional Registration during this period of enforced self-isolation under State legislation. Police apparently have been questioning whether cars are out for essential use purposes.

The CMC has provided the following advice:
It has come to our attention that the NSW Police have pulled over a number of vehicles on conditional registration (H, D or J plates) and questioned whether their use is for essential purposes.
The Council of Motor Clubs (CMC) has sought clarification from the Policy Branch of Transport for NSW (RMS) and has received the following advice.
As long as club members follow NSW State restrictions, such as only going direct to the mechanic, the shops, medical practitioners, pharmacies or to work they are allowed to use HVS and CVS vehicles with the filled out log book.
That does not include trips to try the car out or charge the battery etc., as far as CMC interpret it. Those reasons could be considered spurious by any authority who pull a vehicle up and question its use.
There obviously can be no club events where people gather. CMC suggest that no club sanction or organise any such activity as fines are substantial.
Note that two unrelated people in the front seat of a vehicle are breaking the distancing rules. If they are not family or live with you then they are unrelated.
If you have not opted for the log book scheme then you cannot use the vehicle as there are no club events and going for a maintenance run is not considered an essential use. If you are taking such a vehicle to a mechanic it is suggested it be for essential work and you have a prior appointment with the mechanic.
Go it alone is the safe way if you must go out in ANY vehicle.
It is suggested that members who do NEED to use a vehicle under conditional registration have a copy of this advice with them.

Cheers
Bob Adby
President

The Coronavirus and the JDCA

Web Administrator - Wednesday, March 18, 2020

The JDCA Committee, having taken into account all the medical and government recommendations and restrictions pertaining to COVID-19, has decided to suspend  normal operation of the club for the three months from 17th March, or until further notice.

This will mean that general club meetings are suspended, and that any runs or social meet-ups conducted by the club within this period are either cancelled or suspended.

Also please note that the organisers of Wings over Illawarra have postponed the event until Spring and therefore the planned Illawarra Register run to WoI is also postponed.
