Age related number

Hi, would someone please help as I am going around in circles.

I have a Norton Commando I am currently trying to get registered with an age related plate.

I have the confirmation from the factory records very kindly done by Tim so everything was a goer to apply for a v5 until somebody said that I would have to get an mot to go with all the paper work.

The bike is a 1970 so should be exempt but as much as I read DVLAs information page it does not make it clear nor does anything else I have read on the internet as to whether I do or dont.

Is there a fellow owner out there who has recently applied and received an age related registration and v5?

Did you or didnt you need to get the bike motd first.

Many thanks

Somewhere along the line dvla need proof those numbers you put on the form actually exist on the bike. Some years back when I did mine you mot it on frame number and that got it on the system. Still had to turn up with bike at local office to get reg number .local offices no longer exist but understand they need to be careful issuing reg as there are plenty of crooks who would like to pass off our stolen bikes.

Contact DVLA.  They say that you need to provide MOT to register (re-register) and old vehicle, but as you've found they don't say what to do if it is MOT exempt.  But they do say that they might need to inspect it.

If it is roadworthy you should be able to MOT it anyway (it's not a bad thing to do) and then proceed as they say.

One of my bike's PO restored the bike totally (over 10-12 years) before registering it when it was ready.

Hi Clive,

I recently did this and on the V55 in tax class I wrote Historic and completed a V112 exemption from MOT included with the application. V5 back in 10 days. I agree an MOT is a good idea for peace of mind but no longer a requirement to get the registration done. Paul.

Hi Clive. I registered my model 18 without being required to obtain an MOT but the DVLA did require an independant inspection which was carried out at my home. I understand that this is not always required but there was no extra charge. The inspector did little more than a vin number check and ascertained that the bike was complete.

I was granted an age related plate with the help of the Douglas Owners club end of last year and another granted with the help of the Royal Enfield Owners club this year, and if I am honest it's a minefield. The two clubs had different ways of doing it so one should contact the club according to your machine make. and ask for advice.

Basically this is what I did.
