UPDATED! Changes to ACT CRS (Historic club) registration

The changes to ACT’s CRS are to be implemented on 3rd April 2023.

Log books will now be available from Access Canberra offices from the 3rd April – the date for implementation of the new rules. Do not go the Access Canberra for a log book before this date!

The Logbooks will cost $12 each, are valid for five years, and are issued to each CRS vehicle individually. If you have two CRS vehicles you will need two logbooks, one for each vehicle.

To obtain a logbook you will need an ACT Driver licence and a current club membership card issued by the CDDC. Being able to produce proof of ownership/registration papers for the vehicle when collecting the logbook is also recommended. For the logbook to be valid to use for the 60 days, it must first be signed by the CDDC Registrar.

YOU MUST CHANGE TO THE NEW LOGBOOK BEFORE USING YOUR ACT HISTORIC VEHICLE ON THE ROAD – The goal post moved, so below with the strikethrough is now incorrect.

Please note: you are not required to apply for the new logbook for your CRS registered vehicle(s) immediately. You can elect to wait until your registration is due for renewal and collect the logbook then. However, if you do choose to delay, you will continue to operate under the “old” rules for CRS (The personal log book and 40km radius). The new rules (e.g. 60 days free use) will not apply until a logbook has been issued to your vehicle and signed by the club registrar.

There are 4 points that are required for your registration to be valid (under both the old scheme, and new). If any of the below is not completed/ lapsed, then your vehicle is not registered and must not be used on the road.

  • The CDDC is affiliated with the combine council (This is the club’s duty, and the CDDC Secretary and Registrar stay on top of this)
  • Your CDDC membership is paid and valid ( this is on YOU to ensure you have valid membership)
  • Your log book is completed before the trip you set off on. (In Pen, not pencil, before you start the trip. Every single day of use is one entry into the log)
  • Your registration fees are paid to the ACT Government (Access Canberra)

There is also a new category for Historic ACT vehicles, which is for modified vehicles (think Harris framed TT2 etc). Contact the registrar directly if you need more details on this.

If you have a registration renewal coming up, please make sure you leave yourself enough time to see the club registrar at a CDDC meeting to get your renewal paperwork (and logbook signed). Registrars were also reminded to pass onto members that this is not cheap registration, this is club registration to assist people to enjoy their hobby, don’t abuse the system.

We are keen to see more bikes on historic registration with the CDDC and there are lots of exciting bikes coming of age, think 916, 748, Monster, belt Supersport etc.
