  • Members must allow sufficient time for application forms to be processed by the CPS Officer. Please email the CPS officer (cps@mbcv.org.au) if you have any queries.
  • Once the signed VicRoads forms are returned to the member, the member then submits these with the RWC and the relevant fee to VicRoads for the club permit to be issued. To get what you need for your VicRoads visit, go to the VicRoads webpage reference above, then click on Get a Club Permit and then Step 5: Submit the application.

Upon issuance of CPS permit number

Advise the CPS Officer of your permit number.

  • The TryBooking $100 deposit is fully refunded after the CPS officer is advised of your assigned CPS permit number. The Club will process refund(s) as soon as practical after being advised of your CPS permit number. The $100 deposit is forfeited if you do not advise the Club of your permit number within three months.
  • It is the responsibility of the member to advise the Club Registrar (registrar@mbcv.org.au) of any future changes to that permit number.
