Club Motorcycle (SIVS) Registration

As a HMCCQ member you are entitled to have your motorcycle registered under the Queensland Transport’s Special Interest Vehicles Scheme (SIVS). This scheme has reduced registration costs but requires eligible motorcycles to be manufactured thirty years or more prior to registration date.
Motorcycles registered under this scheme allows members to ride their bikes to and in any event sanctioned by our Club or other appropriate club.
The motorcycle registration issued under this scheme is conditional on you retaining membership of the Club.

Guidance on the SIVS Application Process

The Special Interest Vehicles Scheme mandates that the owner of the vehicle is responsible to ensure all information provided about the vehicle and submitted as part of the registration process, is true and correct.
In the event of an accident, a false declaration may result in the vehicle being declared unregistered and/or uninsured.
