Rally permits

The Rally Permit Scheme caters for vehicles used in rallies organised by a national motorsport organisation recognised by VicRoads. Rally permits are a 12 month unregistered vehicle permit (UVP) identified with a “rally permit” number plate.

Approved national motorsport organisations

Currently the only organisation recognised to approve rally permit applications is the Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS).

All applications for rally permits must be approved by CAMS, prior to being submitted to VicRoads. All enquiries regarding rally permits, should be addressed to:
Chair of the Victorian Rally Advisory Panel
c/o CAMS Victorian Office
PO Box 147
Caulfield South
VIC 3145
