Join Our Club
Dear prospective member of CMCCV,
We are currently receiving a great many applications to join this Club; the majority of which appear to be doing so to secure access to a Club permit (Red Plate) on a classic vehicle. While we acknowledge that this endeavour is in the general interest of the historic vehicle movement, we unfortunately have to admit that there is little, if any interest displayed in our Club among many of these applicants.
With this in mind, please take note and consider the following point/s before you complete the application to join CMCCV.
1. Membership applications are only considered at the end of each month, at that committee meeting; shortly after which formal approval is then granted in writing, to the applicant. This means that your application may take up to 4 weeks to be processed.
2. It is now the policy of the Classic Motorcycle Club of Victoria to not consider an application from a new member, for a Club Permit (Red Plate) for a period of 6 months after membership has been formally granted. This is done to discourage those people from using us merely as a rubber stamp for the Club Permit Scheme, and to put in place a short period, where it is hoped, new members will make an effort to participate in Club life. Such as: attending a meeting or a ride at some stage.
We (the committee) hope you will see our point of view. Our primary endeavour, on behalf of our existing members, is to maintain the health and well being of the Classic Motorcycle Club of Victoria, which has been in existence now for over 40 years.
We do of course, look forward to applications from all owners of classic motorcycles, who also have a genuine interest in motorcycle club life.
Thank you, in anticipation, for your application to join us at CMCCV.
Annual membership fees are currently $45, for single membership and $50 for family membership.
A joining fee of $50 also applies.
Contact the Membership Secretary for further information.

Membership Status: All Full and Family members who have paid the applicable club membership fee are Financial Members of the club.
