hi all

since June last year I've been having some right fun getting my new v5c from dvla . 2 weeks ago i finally had my car inspected by sgs and today ive had a letter from dvla saying this.

following an ivestigation of the vehicle record held for ------- it will be neccessary for your vechicle to be re-registered . due to the age of your vechicle it may be possible to register your vechicle under the reconstructed classic category .

the reconstructed classic category is intended to support the restoration of classic vechicles . reconstructed classic vechicles must comprise old genuine period parts all over 25 years old and all the same specification .

an appropiate vechicles owners club must confirm that following an inspection , the vehicles major components have been authenticated and the complete vehicle is a true reflection of the margue (make).


the owners club will need to provide a detailed inspection report . the report will need to confirm the date of manufacture of each major component on your vehicle . this must be completed on headed paper . if you wish to contact a specialist club which we hold on the V765/1


major vechicle components included chassis , suspension front and back , axles , transmission , steering assembly and engine .


on receipt of a satisfactory inspection report the vechicle will be assigned an age related number plate . this will be based on the age of the youngest major component identified in the build . it will not just be based on the age of the frame or engine .


in order re register the vechicle it must be allocated with a new identification number (VIN) .


the dvla has allocated the VIN - DVLASWA ********** .


please arrange for a frachised dealer or local garage to stamp this number on the chassis of vehicle . END


so basically folks ive rebuilt the oringinal car / got the original engine / got original 70s v5 / resprayed original colour / it was on the dvla system before i brought it, but i want to keep the same number and vin and not have some dvla vin number . the guy who originally inspected it was there for no more than 5 minutes and took a couple of pictures,


does anyone know what i need to do or speak to for a proper inspection and details to send dvla


Many thanks all , sorry its abit long winded

Maybe try the mk1 registrar in cooper register if you are a member, they may be able to offer some advice.

Talk to Paul Sulma of the MCR. He successfully got the original registration back for HOY with no problems.

Sounds like the information was not submitted in the correct way to DVLA.

If you are an MCR member there is a £20 admin charge, if not there is a higher fee. Obviously, Paul will also ask for travelling expenses which is fair enough.

I would have struggled to get the number back without Paul’s help.

I initially had difficulty persuading the DVLA to correctly register my Mk1 "S" until I got help from the MCR.
Give it a try.

Yes hard work these days.

I recently tried to re-submit my early Triumph Scooter, even having a copy of the original ledger from the local authorities, clearly showing TRIUMPH TINA. The only vehicle in the series. Not an important registration, but the one it was issued with from New!

Well, they wouldn't have it. So I got issued an age related plate.................I even wrote to the Director, NOT INTERESTED.

It's getting harder and harder..........................P:(

I had a similar problem with the DVLA recently. It seems that they are becoming very, very hard line on what they will & will not do.

The policy has certainly changed recently & the default position in most cases seems to be that the DVLA will inspect in almost all cases, base any conclusion on that inspection & assume that the applicant is "at it" every time.

Personally I reckon that the days of being able to "resurrect" cars has pretty much gone for good. Even when those resurrections are of a car that on the face of it has enough points to sail through the application process.

They might sell you the registration if it's not used though.
This is what my friend did with a car re imported from the States.

Wow, that's a new curveball on me, the DVLA never cease to amaze me in their inconsistancy. It sounds like you've fallen down the hole I and a couple of others did on here of having a car that's already on their database but on an old V5 or the 'dormant list' of not being taxed, MOTd or sorned for a long stretch. The trouble with that sitution is that it's a whole lot easier to be NOT on their database and start from scratch with the V765 scheme through a club inspection. The idea that they're suggesting a club inspection and NOT keeping your chassis number is bonkers if you have acceptable provenance.

Yes the DVLA can sometimes work effectively and swiftly but random stories like this are so common!!

I really think that there has been a sea-change in their attitude to old cars within the last few months.
