Modified Vehicles

Modified Vehicles

Modified vehicles require a Vehicle Assessment Signatory Scheme (VASS) Approval Certificate to be presented along with the Roadworthy Certificate (RWC) when applying for a Club Permit.  Modified vehicles are then issued with a plate ending in "M".

Examples of modifications for which a approval certificate will be required include:

  • conversions of motor vehicles to motor homes
  • engine changes where the engine is not an option offered for that model by the vehicle manufacturer
  • installation of additional adult seats and seat belts
  • structural modifications e.g. conversion to a limousine, truck chassis extension
  • brake modifications (check VSI 8 - Modification Guide for acceptable modifications not requiring an approval certificate)
  • left hand to right hand steering conversions
  • vehicles modified to provide wheelchair access and restraint
  • modifications or additions to heavy vehicles (check VSI 8 - Modification Guide for acceptable modifications not requiring an approval certificate);
  • replacement frame for a motorcycle
  • chassis replacement on a vehicle that has a separate chassis
