Agency tells owners to prove their cars’ histories, or they’ll get Q-registrations. The DVLA is investigating owners of classic cars with Historic Vehicle status and demanding they send evidence to prove that their cars qualify for it – but won’t reveal the scale of its activities. The agency has been sending letters to owners asking them to send information to prove their cars qualify for the tax-free category for pre vehicles. In one of the letters, the agency warns that it may issue the owner of a Bugatti with a ‘Q’ regiatration plate, depending on the quality of information it receives.
John Vale, Vehicle Registration Policy team leader, said in the letter: ‘Initial investigations have confirmed that some historic vehicles have been built using replica or replacement parts, or a mixture of period and new components, and have therefore been incorrectly registered. The DVLA requires information about the provenance, construction and origin of your vehicle – you should provide it.
If any amendments are needed, these will be made and a new vehicle registration certificate issued. This could involve the issue of a new vehicle regiatration number – and in some cases Individual Vehicle Approval may be required or a Q registration number may be appropriate. Classic Car Weekly understands that so far around letters have been sent out – primarily to owners of Bugattis and other pre-WW2 cars – and that the DVLA is not planning a blanket initiative covering all Historic Vehicle owners.
The DVLA has confirmed to CCW that it is sending letters to Historic Vehicle owners in order to investigate if their vehicles are eligible for the status, but did not respond to requests for information on the scale of the initiative. An agency spokesman said: ‘DVLA has been made aware that some vehicles recorded in the Historic tax class may have been incorrectly registered.
WE have a legal responsibility to ensure that the records we hold are accurate.

If you have old documentation supporting the vehicle registration, such as a buff log book or old tax discs, then the application is made via a V form.
