How to become a Member of PMEA
PMEA is widely known as a friendly and relaxed club, but we do ask you to abide by our club rules. Please read them below. To join PMEA, here’s what to do.
First, pick a date by clicking on EVENTS and come along to a meeting, where we’ll ask you to stand up and introduce yourself briefly. Hopefully, you’ll have read the Membership Rules, downloaded the Membership Form, and filled it out beforehand.
After the meeting, you’ll need to attend a short interview with one of our Committee members, who will explain the conditions of membership and answer any questions you may have. If you are happy to go ahead, hand in your signed form and arrange to pay if you haven’t done so already. Finally, attend the next meeting in two weeks’ time, when you can pick up your membership card.
Once you are a PMEA Member, you can apply to register your historic car or bike (at least 30 years old) under the Historic Vehicle Scheme (HVS). See below for more.
How to register a historic vehicle under the Historic Vehicle Scheme (HVS)
RMS rules state that vehicles at least 30 years of age are eligible and unmodified, except for certain safety items and period accessories. If your vehicle is from interstate, or is unregistered, you will need proof of registration entitlement such as an original receipt and possibly a ‘Blue Slip’ from your local mechanic, who can advise you. PMEA is no longer accepting modified vehicles. For information about these, consult the RMS website for details of the CVS (Classic Vehicles Scheme).
Download and print a Historic Vehicle Declaration form using the following link and complete Sections 1 and 2.
Make an appointment for a PMEA Vehicle inspection. Choose an Inspector below.
PMEA VEHICLE INSPECTORS
-- Steve Blinkhorne or Stuart Dunbar at Mona Vale Automotive
7/101 Darley St Mona Vale. 9979 3844
-- Steve Travica at ST Kar Kraft 13-15/45 Bassett St Mona Vale. 0439 830 025
-- Anthony Cirillo at Cromer Motors 36 Orlando Rd Cromer. 9982 7317
Don’t bother with an e-Safety or ‘Pink Slip’ report, which checks only for safety. Inspection will cost between $45 and $70 and will test for historic compliance as well as safety. You will need to show your membership card.
RMS rules allow you to drive your vehicle via the shortest route to the PMEA Inspector. If your vehicle passes inspection, your form will be completed, stamped and returned to you.
Finally, take the stamped form and any other paperwork, together with your membership card and driving licence to Service NSW to obtain your historic plates and mauve coloured Certificate of Approved Operations.
PMEA uses the RMS Log Book system. Every time your historic vehicle bearing H or J plates is on a public road, you must enter the details in your log book, UNLESS you are taking part in an approved event. Approved events are those that are published in the PMEA Events Calendar, mentioned or sanctioned in the minutes of PMEA meetings, or approved by the Council of Motor Clubs (CMC).

There is a wealth of information concerning historic vehicles in easy-to-read form on the RMS website at:
We ask all members to look at this website and gain at least an idea of all the various headings, if not all the details. It is well worth your time to check it out, especially for matters out of the ordinary.
