Points make prizes

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

The DVLA uses a points sys­tem to de­cide what reg­is­tra­tion num­ber to give to a rad­i­cally al­tered ve­hi­cle. To keep the orig­i­nal reg­is­tra­tion num­ber your ve­hi­cle must have eight or more points from the ta­ble be­low. Five of th­ese points must come from hav­ing the orig­i­nal or new and un­mod­i­fied chas­sis, mono­coque bodyshell or frame. Fail­ure to do so means an In­di­vid­ual Ve­hi­cle Ap­proval (IVA) in­spec­tion and a pos­si­ble Q-plate. Chas­sis/mono­coque body – 5 Sus­pen­sion (front and back) – 2 Axles (both) – 2 Trans­mis­sion – 2 Steer­ing assem­bly – 2 En­gine – 1 If ev­i­dence sug­gests that two shells have been merged to cre­ate one (cut and shut), an IVA will be re­quired.
