You will also need to supply:

  • evidence of current club membership with a Queensland incorporated vehicle club (must be on club letterhead, include details of the vehicle to be registered and be signed by a club official)

  • certification from a dating officer to confirm the vehicle's authenticity and year of manufacture if unable to be verified at your nearest transport and motoring customer service centre.

  3. Ensure you have a copy of your impromptu event notification with you on your run. If there are any questions about your run, being a sanctioned club run, contact can be made with Mark Ellem (webmaster).
