NATIONAL NEWS FROM THE VCC
The Government also announced a 6-month extension for vehicles that have an expired WoF, CoF or registration because the lockdown. There is also a 6-month extension for anyone whose driver’s licence has expired.
It means that you can drive for essential purposes during the Level 3 lockdown, and in the period afterwards, with an expired WoF, registration or licence because you could not renew it during the lockdown. It also means that your insurance policies will remain valid because the Wof and registration etc will be deemed current under the emergency law.
The extension is backdated to anything that expired from 1 January 2020 (or 1 March for licence endorsements), which is also good news for anyone who was unable to get a WoF or repair prior to the lockdown (such as waiting for hard-to-get parts for a vehicle).
It is important to note however that the vehicle must still be in a roadworthy condition.
The Stag Owners Club in New Zealand was formed in 1984 to provide Stag owners the opportunity to meet fellow enthusiasts, to share technical knowledge and to provide parts for their cars at reasonable prices. Club members regularly enjoy social gatherings usually in the form of runs organised by the respective regional co-ordinators.
The club publishes a magazine which comes out quarterly. Here you can read about events attended in the various regions and catch up on a bit of technical data. The club has over 130 members nationwide with the majority situated in the greater Auckland area. It also has a register of all known Stags in New Zealand either in the club or not.
