That is incorrect. Its build date that the DVLA use to determine the age.

I know from expereince with old beetles, Vw actually will send you a "birth certificate" for your car if you ask for it!

right back on page one:
scimjim wrote:to qualify for historic status, you have to prove that a car was built before 1 Jan 1973.

To reduce admin times, DVLA will accept that any car registered on or before 7th Jan 1973 must have been built before 1 Jan 1973 (as detailed on DVLA form INF34).

If there is any doubt, the only way DVLA will accept that a car qualifies, is by letter from a Club official (as recognised and listed in Form V765/1).

Any GTE up to chassis number 931601 qualifies.

Agreed, that point had been corrected right at the beginning of this thread. However, reading today's question from "Samd" :
samd wrote:Hi Jim,
Do I just ring the DVLA and ask them what the reg is for this chassis? Or is there a website where I can do my own search?
Many thanks.
isn't this slightly different - I read it as I've got a chassis with a ch/number, can I find the reg number? (and the notes on the first page of this thread tie in with that) I think the only people who could do that might be DVLA (if they feel like it), unless it's on the club register, which doesn't seem to be the case?

in my experience (in the 18 months since this was originally posted) DVLA won't give you the reg from a chassis number (can't hurt to ring though).

Exactly right Roger.

Thanks for the reply Jim.
Just for your info, I got in touch with Swansea and they told me I need to fill in form V62 send a cheque for £25 and they will send me a reg. No. I assume it will be different to the original No. but it should be age related. He said they have no way of tracing the original No. from the Chassis No.

I'd check it will be age related, I'm in the process of getting rat rods changed back to the original reg. The DVLA told me that if I can prove the original reg and the club confirm it then it's free. But if I just apply for a age related one it's £55. Which annoyed me because it's there mistake in the first place when it was transferred back from a private plate back in the 70's.

Mmm, in my case it is slightly different, as the age related thing will probably be of no use as I am liable to change it to a NI one anyway, so I dont really mind what they send.

annoying because as we all know - it's a computer database, it just needs the right search parameters :twisted:

of course - just beurocratic talk for -" we cant be bothered helping "

but the way to find the reg is to do an HPI Check :D which should tell you the reg from the vin number

Our 5a sneaks in by 37. In the last budget it was announced the exemption would change to 74 but when and if it will keep rolling I don't know

With the tax exemption rolled forward to 1974 what is the latest 5A chassis number that now qualifies? Mine is 93x5028.
