Apply for rally car registration

You can get a reduced registration rate for your dedicated rally car.

This registration only applies to vehicles that have been constructed solely to participate in rally car events. These events must be approved by Motorsport Australia.

You will have restricted access to a road or a road-related area.

This is not an alternative to normal vehicle registration. It is also not a short-term registration scheme.
