CMC Update....
Council of Motor Clubs

As reported earlier the CMC has been active with technical representative on the Vehicle Standards Working Group, for those members wanting to restore a car by replacing the body and/or major components without having to make it into a "new car". If you are modifying or building a modified vehicle you should be using a VSCCS engineer. A brochure is available at:
www.rms.nsw.gov.au/registration/downloads/vsccs_brochure.pdf

Also read and understand the new guidelines in regard to the type of testing, if any, required.

Read the new guidelines developed through the VSWG for modified vehicles at:
www.rms.nsw.gov.au/registration/downloads/vsi/vsi6.pdf

If a brake test is required, it will need to be tested in accordance with new brake assessment manual, which also has been introduced to make it easier and more affordable for enthusiasts to obtain approval at:
