If you have an old Triumph motorcycle that has never been registered, or one that the DVLA do not have any records for, and you wish to retain the original (or obtain an age-related) registration number plate then you need this service.Back in 1974, the DVLA started computerising vehicle registrations.In order to retain an original (or obtain an age-related) registration number, you first need to apply for a Dating Certificate from the appropriate vehicle enthusiasts club - these are listed in the DVLA leaflet V765/1.
We aren't a lending library and cannot make copies of copyrighted material, but Members of the Club can send technical queries to the Club Archivist (or on the Forum or into the magazine), who will do his best to respond with the required information.
As these plates were issued and managed locally by County Council offices, number and letter sequences ran out at different rates in different parts of the country.
Therefore, due to differing local demand, there are a wide variety of types of dateless plates with a lot of overlap between the issue periods for different formats.
If you have any original Bills of Sale or Service documents then this will make the job much easier. After obtaining your Dating Certificate, you can send it along with the appropriate forms to the DVLA to obtain your authorisation to use the original registration number.
In fact, any dated information you can supply on your machine will make your case that much stronger. More information about registering your motorcycle can be obtained from the web site but our Machine Registrar will be able to give you better advice.
