1. Proof of Frame, Engine Number and VIN plate (if fitted).

Clear photographs of the complete numbers and plates are required or if this is not possible rubbings may be taken, but these too must be readable. In the case of the VIN plate please ensure they show the whole plate.If this is not provided then we will either issue a certificate explaining this or in certain cases refuse the application. Chalk or marker pen rubbed into the numbers can aid photography. If you can’t read the numbers then we can’t and they are not good enough. Most applications are delayed due to poor evidence. 

2. Photographs of the complete bike from both sides. 

Please send at least 1 Photograph of each side of the complete bike, don’t chop off the wheels or other parts. The reason for this is so that we can ensure most parts consistent with the year of manufacture, if a machine has been altered with parts from different years or bikes, the DVLA might wish to class the bike as a special and issue a "Q" plate. Motorcycles may require inspection. The bike must be in one piece, and lights etc fitted, otherwise the DVLA may issue a “Daylight” only registration. Do not send original documents as we are not be able to return them.

Note: The validity of Dating letters expire after 12 months, so get your forms into the DVLA as soon as you can. It is best to apply for a registration before restoring the bike as we still need to see the frame number after it has been painted, so does the MOT tester. Only send the original dating letter to the DVLA, they won’t accept a photocopy. If a Dating letter is lost during the 12 months whilst it is still valid, and vehicle still meets the current DVLA requirements, then a £15 fee is payable for a re-print. In any other case it would require a new Dating application to be made.

 

If you need the Club to supply an V627 Inspection form for the DVLA this will also incur a £15 fee.
