Important information – changes to Historic Registration

You can now apply for Historic Registration on compliant Vehicles 25 years and older in the State of South Australia and The Rover Car Club of South Australia can assist. We are a registered Club with the Federation of Historic Motoring Clubs SA Incorporated.

We are able to issue Approval Forms and Log Books for Vehicles over 25 years for registration on the Historic Vehicle Registration Scheme, which entitles you to a substantial cost saving in comparison to normal registration fees. We have 7 Members who have a Certificate of Authorisation to carry out the necessary process and we are happy to accept all Makes and Models not just Rover.

So contact us and let us assist you with your Classic Vehicle.

Presidents welcome.

Formed in 1977, the Rover Car Club of South Australia celebrated its 40th Anniversary in 2017. Since its inception it has grown in member size to over 110 financial members and is a club that is highly regarded by its peers within Australia. Over its 47-year history it has been instrumental in launching some great events here in South Australia, the main one being in 1986 when its British Breakfast would ultimately become the now famous All British Day held annually on the first Sunday March.

The club members have a great array of vehicles manufactured by Rover from the 1920s through to the last of “Britain’s Finest”, the ‘75’ in 2004. The P5/P5B and the P6B appear to be the most popular models owned by members with a good sprinkling of other Rover models spread out across the membership. Of the post war Rovers, the P3 celebrated its 75th Anniversary, the P5 its 65th anniversary and the P6 its 60th anniversary all in 2023.

We should not forget the Land Rover, which also celebrated its 70th Anniversary in 2018, the club has had a good representation of these from over the years.

The Rover Car Club of South Australia has a progressive and active membership that spans a good cross section of motoring enthusiasts, it also has a progressive constitution that permits its members to place other vehicle marques that are over 25 years of age on the Clubs Historic Registration register. 

During each year the club hosts a great cross section of ‘fun runs and events for members along with guest presenters at its monthly general meetings. Our members are progressive, social and accepting of all new members who share the Rover passion.

Please enjoy our website which highlights not only our club and its activities through great stories and pictures but also “Britain’s Finest”, Rover vehicles. If you too share our interest and passion for these wonderfully well-engineered advanced in their time, British motor vehicles then why not contact us now, visit our membership page for more information.

I hope to see you at one of our great events soon.
