DVLA’s miss­ing mar­ques

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Your Letters -

One very much hopes that no one is plan­ning to sup­ply the DVLA with the 42 miss­ing mar­ques you list in the 22 June is­sue, un­der the delu­sion that this would make their list com­plete.

Mod­ern-day jour­nal­ists would do well to read a bit more widely, the bet­ter to have an idea of the thou­sands of makes ex­tant since the birth of the in­dus­try and which are no longer with us. Don’t for­get that the DVLA is re­spon­si­ble for all pow­ered ve­hi­cles, not just cars, and its list is bound to be woe­fully short. The only vi­able way of up­dat­ing its sys­tem would be to in­clude any make which own­ers put to them, pro­vided that it can be ver­i­fied as gen­uine by an in­de­pen­dent his­tor­i­cal source, and de­mand a maker’s iden­ti­fi­ca­tion plate as proof of such.
