The Queensland Government allows concessional registration for historic vehicles (light and heavy vehicles that are at least 30 years old). You will need to follow the standard registration procedures for a vehicle as well as completing a Vehicle Registration Concession Application (form F3937) and providing the following documents as proof of eligibility:
- Club membership: Evidence of current membership with an incorporated vehicle club or association must be provided at the time of application for the concession. Vehicles other than historic ambulances and fire-fighting equipment vehicles must be registered in the name of the club member (individuals only).
- Historic vehicle and dating certificate: A dating officer (or club official) of an incorporated vehicle club or association must inspect the vehicle to certify the vehicle’s authenticity and year of manufacture, that is, no structural modifications have been made that would deem it as manufactured at the date it was modified. This certificate must be on club letterhead or other other official club documentation and include the chassis number or vehicle identification number.
Contact the The AROCA (Qld) Vehicle Dating Officer for a dating certificate for your Alfa.
If you have your chassis or engine number, you can also email the Alfa Romeo museum for confirmation of build dates, etc.: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vehicles registered under the scheme have certain limitations placed on their use. This is reflected in the reduced fees and compulsory third party insurance premium. Registered operators must confine their vehicle’s use to:
- participating in rallies organised by incorporated vehicle clubs
- participating in processions for which a Special Events Permit has been issued under the Transport Operations (Road Use Management –Accreditation and Other Provisions) Regulation 2005
- exhibiting the vehicle in displays, fetes or similar functions conducted for religious, charitable or educational purposes
- ceremonial purposes (weddings, formals) involving immediate family members provided this is not done for fee or reward. Immediate family means parents, grandparents, sons, daughters, grandchildren but not extended family relationships such as nephews and nieces
- preparing for, proceeding to, and returning from the above activities
- direct travel to and from an Approved Inspection Station (AIS) for the purposes of obtaining a safety certificate before offering the vehicle for sale
- travel in order to have the vehicle repaired. There is no distance restriction in these circumstances however, such travel must be reasonable and justifiable by the vehicle operator
- road testing within a 15 kilometre radius from the place where the vehicle is garaged. The purpose of the travel must be to road test the vehicle following repair
