Special Interest Vehicle Scheme (SIVS) concessional registration

SIVS registration (informally known as Club Rego or Historic Rego) allows the restricted use of historic motorcycles at a concessional rate of registration. Conditions of use are clearly stated on the the Queensland Transport & Main Roads webite. Note that there have been relatively recent changes to these restrictions, including the radius for "test rides" and impromptu rides (details about the later below).  It is the onus of the registered owner to familiarise themselves and comply with these restrictions.  TMR requires the registered owner to sign off on such conditions before any application is processed.

SIVS is available to financial members of the DOCQ.  To qualify for SIVS registration your motorcycle must be at least 30 years old and its owner a current financial member of the DOCQ.  In support of a member’s initial application for a SIVS registration, he/she must obtain a Letter of Authenticity from the DOCQ Historic Registrar to provide to TMR.  Owners then must maintain their DOCQ membership for the SIVS registration to remain valid. If membership lapses the bike is no longer considered registered, risking significant fines and potential insurance liabilities.

To provide a letter of authenticity for SIVS registration, the Historic Registrar requires his/her membership number plus the following; 

  • Members name & address
  • Model & year of manufacture
  • Frame & engine numbers

Ideally, a bike is to be viewed before a letter will be issued.  Where this is not possible, e.g country members, this info may be obtained from an existing rego slip.  As there is no app or on-line process it may take at least week for the member to receive the Letter of Authenticity, allowing for postal delivery, so please do not expect our volunteer Historic Registrars to turn these around the day before you want to register your bike.

Members who wishes to apply for concessional SIVS rego should contact the DOCQ Historic Registrar for assistance with their application (go to the Extended Committee page for their details).

For information about the 2019 changes to the SIVS regulations relating to individual Impromptu Rides and how to
use this function via the DOCQ App go to SIVS Policy & App Instructions.
