I had the same with the DVLA when I sent my "receipt/covering letter" and docs for my engine change.

After a few weeks I had the letter back saying I hadn't sent the required receipt for the work....which I had!

I got the run around on the phone too - so I resent it and stapled it all together a couple of times and they managed not to lose it.

I wonder if they'd accept certified true copies of the docs, signed and stamped by your local solicitor or other noteworthy nob.

Legally a "notarised" copy is exactly the same as an original. Although whether it's worth spending £150.00 getting notarised copies is questionable.

Don't you just go to the post office to amend tax class to historic, then they send it off?


That’s what I did when I put the pick up back on the road last year. Although to be precise, I did have a V5C.

I used to have to go to the local DVLO office but when they closed them all it could be done at the PO. Since they closed those offices it’s been somewhat hit and miss and very inconsistent.


Spraybeateer had his V5C too, so why would the P.O turn him away when GOV.UK specifically says go to the P.O? Surely they're duty bound as long as they do vehicle tax. Just got to do mine in the coming months, so wondering what best route is to avoid the run around. I need an MOT first though right? ... the car was last taxed 1992 :shock: Cheers.

The Person :!: I spoke to in our local PO got the details up on screen and it said
that the tax classification was PLG and I would need to send to DVLA to have it
amended, to be fair to him? as the car was registered 07/01/1978 ie 40yrs old
it doesn't officially qualify for Historic Vehicle Tax till the start of the tax year
05 April, hence the reason for sending all the paperwork to DVLA, proof of
build date ie 07/02/1976, I would have applied earlier! but for 1 of the required
documents, namely the MOT certificate , all the paperwork was sent the same day
that it passed 22 Jan 2018. The car had been on SORN since 2010.
As said I still wonder that only the Heritage Certificate was missing :o

Dear Count.. thanks for your post to open my eyes as i also have a July 1978 ( GT) and only just realised i need to change my V5c to Historic .. just couple of questions ..
1. What DVLA form do i need to fill in to get the V5C changed to Historic Vehicle ?
2. Why do i need to include a Heritage Certificate when the DVLA are anyway aware of the cars original date of registration?
Many Thanks.

:lol: :roll:
The form seems to be a bit of a problem I did get it from DVLA site but now can't seem to find it
The reason I sent the Heritage Certificate was to prove the build date( so as to get the Historic Vehicle
classification changed before the tax year date 05 April).I think you won't need to!
To be quite honest I now wish I had just waited :( .
As they say there are two certain things in life Death and Taxes,One we can do nowt about ! to get some of the
other back is always a bonus.

The Count :lol: :roll:

There seems to be a pattern now with the DVLA. Vehicles changing hands seem to trigger questions from what we see over here. Some years down the road when age changes ownership of dubious / doubtful Minis and all the shady current owners are gone what will happen? We need to educate young people that this minefield must be avoided at all costs :?:

Unless it's changed, I don't think a July 78 car will be eligible for tax exemption until April 2019, unless it was built in 77. :? :(

My late 75 pick up only became eligible in April 2016.

Andrew .. good advice thanks .. for your 75 Pick-Up did you have to apply to DVLA to change the V5c to say Historic Vehicle?
