DVLA VIC­TORY FOR CLAS­SIC CAR OWN­ERS

Miss­ing mar­ques fi­nally added to car agency’s data­base

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Front Page -

The DVLA has caved in to pres­sure from clas­sic car own­ers and is start­ing to add miss­ing mar­ques to its on­line data­base. Re­search re­veals that own­ers and prospec­tive buy­ers for pre­vi­ously miss­ing mar­ques like Al­lard, Alvis, DeLorean, Cross­ley, and Stan­dard can now fi­nally look up MoT his­tory, tax and in­sur­ance data us­ing the DVLA’s on­line ser­vice.

Last year CCW high­lighed prob­lems en­coun­tered by own­ers of clas­sic cars from 42 sep­a­rate man­u­fac­tur­ers, who haven’t been able to ac­cess the DVLA’s in­creas­ingly on­line ser­vices.

Start­ing from ‘the be­gin­ning of May’, the on­line Ve­hi­cle En­quiry Ser­vice will also be up­dated so own­ers will no longer have to in­put the make of the ve­hi­cle to look up records. The Fed­er­a­tion of Bri­tish His­toric Ve­hi­cle Clubs, how­ever, con­firmed that no changes to reg­is­ter­ing clas­sics or mak­ing changes to the V5C on­line have been made yet, though.
