The NSW Government has announced a log book scheme to allow historic and classic car owners to drive their vehicles for up to 60 days each year outside club events.
According to minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole, 50,000 cars participated in the log book scheme during its trial period.
"We know owners of these cars want to be able to take them out for a spin and share their love of these cars with others, that's why we've made it easier for them to keep track of how often they drive them," Mr Toole said.
Minister for Transport and Roads Andrew Constance said Transport NSW would deliver phased improvements to the log book scheme over the next 12 months.
"We are looking at ways to ensure compliance of the conditional registration and to support motorists by ensuring they have a say in the log book format," he said.
Drivers will also need to continue to record their vehicle's use in the log book and be a member of a Transport for NSW recognised classic or historic vehicle club or approved organisation to use the log book.
Australian Confederation of Motor Clubs president Tony O'Donnell said the log book scheme allowed owners to easily enjoy and share the pleasure of their vehicles.
"Its confirmation as a permanent scheme encourages our long term commitment to our lifestyle, event participation and the stability of the industry and jobs we support," he said.
