The Ministry has stated in the draft that the vehicle owner of the said vehicle will have to furnish documents such as valid insurance policy, bill of entry in case of an imported vehicle, and the old registration certificate. The vintage vehicle registration is going to cost an owner a fee amount of Rs 20,000. All the documents will be verified and approved by the VMVSC.

After the approval of the VMVSC, the Vintage Motor Vehicles State Registering Authority (VMVSRA) will issue a registration number to these classic machines. The validity of the registration will be for 10 years after which it can be renewed.

The draft also states important points regarding the use of the registered vintage vehicles. Such a vehicle will not be allowed to be driven on the public roads for regular use. These vintage vehicles will only be allowed to be displayed or demonstrated in any exhibition, rally, show or a museum. The only allowed use on public roads is when a vintage vehicle would ply for refuelling and regular maintenance.
