Here’s a sat­is­fied DVLA cus­tomer

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Your Letters -

I also have an S-reg­is­tered Tri­umph Stag (see ‘More logbook shen­nani­gans’) and this was built in May 1976. In Septem­ber 2014 I wrote to the DVLA ask­ing that the cor­rect year of build could be recorded as 1976, so that I could tax it as his­toric in 2017.

I en­closed the V5 and my Her­itage cer­tifi­cate, which clearly showed the com­mis­sion num­ber and build date. In Oc­to­ber I re­ceived back a new V5 with its cor­rect reg­is­tra­tion and shortly af­ter my Her­itage cer­tifi­cate in per­fect con­di­tion. Al­though the new V5 does not men­tion the date of man­u­fac­ture it is there on the DVLA web­site as be­ing built in 1976.

I can­not un­der­stand how I had the data­base up­dated, whereas Ian has ex­pe­ri­enced con­sid­er­able dis­tress in his deal­ings with Swansea. Brian Ge­orge, New­cas­tle-upon-Tyne
