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 (form CMC1) and completed form E81 to any Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) Centre. Note: Your signature must be witnessed - hence do not sign before attending the Licensing Centre. The counter staff can witness your signature on the E81.
Certification of Financial Membership
This has to be completed by an Authorised Person of the VCCC. Normally, this will be the 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 Club web site or the Wattle Grove Parts Shed.
