    For both Code 404 & Code C4C the new owner has to be a member of a  “DoT (Dept of transport) approved historic motoring club”  and have a CMC1 form completed by an Authorised Person of the Club that the new owner belongs to, in the case of the VCC WA this is will be the any of clubs approved vehicle inspectors, for this the vehicle may need to also be inspected by the clubs vehicle inspectors. This will need to be presented to the DoT together with the DOT transfer of ownership form.

    If you are transferring ownership and there is not a CMC1 form with the DoT transfer form, then the vehicle will be put onto a full license. In the case of Code 404 this will mean that if the vehicle has never been on a full license, then the vehicle will need to undergo a full DoT vehicle inspection to be put onto a full license.

    Not an entirely straightforward question, Mark. First the easy bit, from the Club's perspective, once you sell the vehicle, please make sure you remove it from the club records by logging on to your profile on the web site and go to edit profile and remove the car. 

    Now the tricky bit -  doesn't matter if it a C4C or a 404 concession, most of the work will have to be done by the purchaser, but the status of the license may determine how much they are willing to pay for your car. If they are a club member (us or another DoT approved club) then its easier - the purchaser gets a signed CMC 1 form (404) or E116 (C4C) from their club and takes that along to licensing when they transfer the vehicle. Easy.

    Without that paperwork the vehicle will have to go back onto full reg at that time. And this is where it can get messy. If there is not a DoT record that the vehicle was ever on full reg (unlikley but possible if it was originally a ground up restoration or build)   they may want it inspected first, but even if it was, a 404 vehicle will now be subject to stamp duty as it is transferred. C4C wears stamp duty always. Arguably, all of this is the purchaser's problem but they need to go into it with eyes open or it will just cause agro. Cheers Andy

    Hi David. The short answer is no, a company car can't end up on C4C (at least not with us) . The DoT code of conduct for C4C states  that the "Licence Holder" must be a member of an approved car club. Now the VCCC only has personal memberships - ie a real person not a company. Pretty sure you will find most car clubs are like this too as it is driven by the Associations Incorporation Act. Clubs only deal with real people. Cheers Andy
