Club / Historic Registration Scheme – Update


Fees must be paid and Logbooks updated for the 2019-2020 Club Year by 30 June 2019. If this is not done and the owner is detected driving the vehicle after 1 July 2019, the vehicle is deemed to be unregistered and uninsured. Prosecution is the likely outcome as the conditions of having a vehicle on the “Concessional Club Registration Scheme” have not been met.

Club (Concessional) Registration Logbook Usage Tips

Below are a few pointers on completing and keeping your Club Vehicle Logbook up to date, as it is a Legal Document and subject to audit by SA Police and the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI).

1. Driver must date, sign the Logbook before Journey commences with a brief description of the travel (e.g. City, Suburbs or Barossa Valley) and carry the Logbook in the vehicle for that journey.

2. If the logbook is not signed for that day of use and the driver is stopped by a Police Officer then the vehicle is deemed to be unregistered and uninsured as the conditions of Club Registration have not been met. The driver may be prosecuted.

3. The same applies if the vehicle is involved in an accident, meaning as it is unregistered and Insurance Companies will most likely refuse coverage. Could be very expensive.

4. If a change of driver occurs, then each driver is to make an entry and sign the logbook for that day of use, same details but next line in the logbook. Note: This includes any person taking the Club Registered vehicle for a test run when in for service or repairs.

5. One entry required for each calendar day. (Midnight to Midnight represents a day).

6. Do not miss any lines, all entries in the Logbook to be consecutive.

7. Sign Logbook only in ink, NO pencil entries allowed.

8. Vehicle can be driven for 90 days a year only, and it does not matter how many drivers sign the logbook.

9. The owner does not need to be with the vehicle at the time of use. Remember the driver must sign Logbook.

10. If the Logbook is lost TSOA must be notified as a replacement can be arranged.

11. Should you change your Registration Number TSOA must be notified so records can amended.

12. It is the owner’s responsibility to enter and update the Registration commencement and expiry details.

13. If owner fails to renew their Club membership the vehicle must not be driven as it is deemed to be unregistered and uninsured, as the conditions of Club Registration have not been met. TSOA is required to notify DPTI. The Logbook cannot be updated.

14. To maintain compliance with the Club Registration Scheme, the Logbook must be updated by the 1st July as this is the commencement of the Club financial year (details on how to carry out this update will be published in the TSOA Track Magazine). If not updated, the vehicle must not be driven as it is deemed to be unregistered and uninsured and TSOA is required to notify DPTI.

15. If the Club Registered Vehicle is sold. The owner must cancel the Club Registration immediately, as the Club Registration is non transferable. The Logbook must be returned to the Club of Issue for cancellation. Once cancelled, the Logbook will be returned to the owner and they are required to keep this Logbook for up to 2 months after cancellation in case it is required to be inspected by a Police Officer.

16. If the owner of the Club Registered Vehicle resigns from TSOA, cancels the Registration or reverts to full Registration, the Logbook must also be returned to the TSOA for cancellation.

17. Should the sole owner of the Club Vehicle become deceased, the vehicle must not be driven as once that person has died, the vehicle is deemed to be unregistered and uninsured, by DPTI.

18. Should the Vehicle be in Joint names and one owner dies, then a person is recorded as deceased and this will prevent the registration being renewed again. There is a process in place which does an automatic transfer from joint to single names where deceased is recorded but this doesn’t work for conditionally registered vehicles.

19. Should the vehicle owner change Club Registration to a different Authorised Club, the Logbook must be returned to the issuing club for cancellation, before the new club can issue a Logbook. Club Concessional Registration and Logbook issue is specific to a Club.
