…the Northern Beaches club for car, motorcycle
and other motor enthusiasts
WELCOME TO THE PITTWATER MOTOR ENTHUSIASTS ASSOCIATION
Pittwater Motoring Enthusiasts Association (PMEA or the Club) was founded in 1994 on the Northern Beaches and Pittwater region of Sydney. The Club fosters a friendship among people with a shared interest in vehicles of all types both old and new, including cars, motorcycles and other types of machinery and equipment.
The Club encourages the preservation, restoration, maintenance, use and display of historic vehicles and machinery.
Members and guests can attend fortnightly Wednesday meetings held at the Royal Motor Yacht Club, 46 Prince Alfred Parade, Newport NSW, starting at 7.30pm.
Members meet socially in a range of regular events from our Events Calendar. The Club is very proud of its support, via donations, to charitable organisations each year. A Club magazine 'STAY TUNED' is published online every two months.
Most importantly, the Club encourages members to be active participants, not just joining the Club for the ‘cheap rego.’
The Royal Motor Yacht Club has a Bistro if you want to arrive early for dinner or a light snack, full bar facilities and plenty of off-street parking.

CHANGE TO MEETING DATES & VENUE COST INCREASES
It was announced at last week's meeting (21.03.23) that due to the RMYC closing on Monday and Tuesday nights over the Winter period, all future General Meetings will now be held on a Wednesday night.....still at 7.30pm. The next meeting will therefore be on Wednesday the 5th of April and continue every second Wednesday until further notice. Be there to hear more about PMEA's Vice President, Barry Ahearn....an event not to be missed.
PMEA members should be aware that in addition to RMYC closing on Mondays & Tuesdays, we have also been advised that their room hire and catering costs are to rise substantially as of the 1st of June 2023. Accordingly, PMEA's committee has met to discuss the implications of RMYC's changes and its finding will be discussed with the members in attendance at the meeting of the 5th of April 2023. Your attendence is encouraged to ensure you are fully aware of any possible changes.
AMENDMENTS TO PMEAs WEBSITE RE HVS & CVS REGISTRATION REGULATIONS.
PMEA members with vehicles registered under the RMS’s Historic Vehicle Scheme (HVS) or the Classic Vehicle Scheme (CVS) should ensure that they fully familiarise themselves with ALL requirements set out on the relevant pages of the RMS website. These include but are not limited to items such as unapproved modifications to HVS vehicles that may recategorise them as CVS or illegally registered vehicles etc. In applying for new membership or renewing your annual membership, you are declaring that any and all modifications that may have been made to your vehicles, have been disclosed to and approved by any of PMEA's approved Vehicle Inspectors.
THE ONUS IS ON YOU
FILL IN YOUR LOG BOOKS.....OR ELSE!!!!
Further to general discussions at the last couple of General Meetings, members should AGAIN be reminded that unless you are going directly to or returning directly from a PMEA event as scheduled on this website, members with cars or motorcycles registered on the Historic Vehicle Scheme (HVS ) or the Classic Vehicle Scheme (CVS), MUST FILL IN THEIR LOG BOOKS.
Latest advice from authorities is that failure to comply will result in the following penalties should you be pulled over by Police:
- Failure to have a Log Book filled out for the day - $128.00 plus loss of 2 points.
As a consequence of not having your Log Book correctly filled out or not being a current financial member of PMEA, your vehicle is considered unregistered and uninsured and the Police may also impose the following ADDITIONAL penalties:
- Driving/riding an unregisterd vehicle - $723.00
- Driving/riding a vehicle without current CTP insurance - $723.00
In total you could be fined a total of $1,574.00 plus loss of 2 demerit points.
