Since 2013 the Hartwell Club have facilitated the Club Permit Scheme for our members. The need was there and once the correct paperwork was in place we soon aided our members in registering their vehicles and bikes. As a member you are not required to attend meeting or expected to carry out any duties within the club. However, we do expect you to abide by the rules so as to not jeopardise this excellent facilities for others.
The Club Permit Scheme enables you to register your car/bike for road use for a fraction of the price of full registration. For example to register a car these days would cost around the $700/800 mark. To register a 25 year old (or older) bike or car for a 45 day permit will cost around $74 or a 90 day permit around $150. This just means you are only able to drive/ride it 45 days per year or 90 days per year. A great way to keep our old engines going and enjoy their history as we drive/ride.
All we require if you just want to use this facility is a Social membership (see membership section for details) and we also require you to familiarise yourself with your responsibilities of having the benefit of such a permit.
