Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicle Register

What is the Register of Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicles?

The Register of Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicles is a register of vehicle make/models that have been assessed as meeting the criteria in the Regulations for classification as specialist and enthusiast vehicles. These are make/models that are not available from the mainstream manufacturers and cater for consumers with specialist and enthusiast interests.

The requirements, set out in Regulation 24 of the Motor Vehicle Standards Regulations 1989, apply to both new and used motor vehicles but do not apply to trailers (T Group), full volume new vehicles of all categories or full volume used two-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles (L Group).

Why are vehicles placed on the Register?

Once on the Register, vehicles can be imported under the Low Volume Scheme and the Registered Automotive Workshop Scheme.

How do vehicles get on the Register?

An application for inclusion of a vehicle on the Register under the Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicle Scheme (SEVS) can be made to the Department. If successful, the vehicle model will be added to the Register.

The Department may also make a decision without an application having been made.

The criteria and application form for the Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicle Scheme and a list of all the vehicle models already assessed under the Scheme are available on the Register.

How to apply

To apply to have a vehicle added to the Register, complete the Register of Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicles Application Form found on the Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicle Scheme website.
