Application to register a vehicle under its original registration number
The Norton Owners Club is on the DVLA List Of Vehicle Owners Clubs and recognised as being able to support Members' applications for obtaining retained or age related registration numbers for Norton motorcycles. The Club's Records Officers will assess applications and provided everything is in order, endorse them and forward them to DVLA. The decision of the Records Officers as to whether or not an application will be endorsed is final and if rejected, the Club fee is not refundable. The Records Officer may decide that an inspection of the machine is required. If this is the case, he will arrange an inspection for which there will be a charge. You will be advised in advance of any visit. Alternatively you may bring the machine to an appointed inspector at an agreed location.
To retain an old registration number you must have:-
- An old logbook OR old tax disc(s) dated prior to 1983 OR MoT certificate(s) dated prior to 1983
- The Frame No. and Engine No. in the log book corresponding with the ones on the machine
- A copy of DVLA Form V765
- A copy of DVLA Form V55/5
Take your old log book, tax disc(s) or MoT certificate(s) to your DVLA local office
They will copy, stamp and return them to you at the time.
Send the following to the NOC Records Officer:-
- A completed application form
- Two photographs of each side of the complete machine in its current condition
- Photographs and rubbings of both the Frame No. and the Engine No.
- Copies of the log book, tax disc(s) or MoT certificate(s)
- DVLA forms V765 and V55/5 part-completed and signed
- Payment to the Norton Owners Club: Members £30 Non-Members £40
It may be possible to retain a registration mark by using the local county records archive. The Records Officer can advise on this.
Please note - Norton Factory Records do not normally give the registration mark allocated.
