Club Permits

 

We here at MCCA love the club permit scheme because it’s a way to keep our precious weekenders on the road without breaking the bank. If you have a car or motorbike over 25 years of age, whether it is a Mazda or not, we’d like to help you keep it on the road.

After the club permit changes made on 31st Jan 2015 we as a club have also decided to make changes to the way we deal with club permits. We wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to have a car/motorbike with us on the club permit scheme.

What you will need for us to put you on club permit is:

It is a legal requirement for us to keep photos, registration numbers, and registration dates otherwise we can lose our ability to offer club permits and everyone suffers. If you do not provide this information you may have your permit cancelled.

We would like you to have been a current member for 3 months before we put you on club reg but that can be waived with a reference from a current member with at least a year membership. We will also waive the 3 months for special circumstances that will be voted on by the committee.

Renewals are also simple. There is a $50 per car renewal fee that will be waived if you have attended 3 club events during the year. At an event you attend you can either have your logbook sited and initialed by a committee member or talk to one of our committee members to have your attendance noted. You will need to sign a Renewal club reg form (click to download) and that is it! You are ready to go for another year!

So come and talk to us today about getting your precious vehicle put onto the club permit scheme
