Concessional Vehicle Licencing - DoT Code 404
In Western Australia, the concessional registration of eligible Historic Vehicles is subject to arrangements negotiated between the Department of Transport and the Council of Motoring Clubs of WA. As an eligible member of the CMC, the VCC is able to make concessional registration Code 404 available to its members.
Over the past few years number of changes have taken place to Code 404 which are the regulations by which the concessional licence for unmodified vehicles over 25 years old is based, the latest changes came into force from December 19, 2016.
Note that concessional licence code C4C ( for modified vehicles ) is not yet available for members of the club.

E81 Concession Application Form
You will require this form if you want to change your current licensed vehicle to a concessional licence.
Currently licensed vehicles within WA are NOT required to undergo an inspection prior to applying for the 404 concession. The owner simply takes the current licence papers, a copy of their club financial letter and completed form E81 to any Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) Centre. The counter staff can witness the signature on the E81.
Certification of Financial Membership
This has to be completed by an Authorised Person of the VCC. Normally, this will be thhe Vehicle Registrar. The Club is unable to provide this endorsement unless there is evidence that the applicant has a set of "Historic" license plates available to be fitted to the vehicle. These plates are available for purchase from the parts shed.
