Joining the Vespa Club of Melbourne is easy. And membership is not just restricted to Melbourne residents. If you live around Melbourne or in country Victoria, interstate or even overseas, your participation in the Club is most welcome.
Members are also issued with a membership card which entitles them to discounts at businesses and organisations around Melbourne. The list of our friendly discounters is growing, so we would hope that your membership fee is returned to you over a year.
The Vespa Club of Melbourne has four categories of membership and eligibility.
Full Membership $50
Full Members own and ride a Vespa motor scooter, that is a Vespa manufactured by Piaggio, or under licence by Piaggio, and originally sold with the Vespa brand. They receive a Club Members kit, have voting rights on club business, and may hold positions on the committee
Partner Membership $25
Partner Members are the spouses and partners of Full Members who ride a scooter or motor cycle that is not a Vespa, or who wish to participate in Club activities as a pillion rider. Partner members can attend all Club activities accompanying their Full Member partner. Partner members receive a Club Members kit, but do not have voting rights in regards to Club business and are unable to hold positions on the Committee.
Corporate Membership $200
Corporate Members are businesses or organisations who are directly associated with the promotion and preservation of the Vespa motor scooter. The Vespa Club of Melbourne will display Corporate Members on its website and publications and promote the Corporate Member to the wider scooter community. The organisation nominates an individual to represent the organisation within the Club. Corporate Members, through their representative, do not have any voting rights in regards to Club business, and are unable to hold positions on the committee.
