NOC2-3 Age Related Reg. Application

Application for an age related registration

For reassembled Original Machines please see NOC Official date Letter NOC2 form and NOC2 Notes.

For bikes restored using parts from multiple sources, please use the NOC3 form and read the NOC3 notes.

Where your vehicle does not have a registration number, you may apply for an age related one.  This only applies to vehicles which have been reassembled from the original vehicle. All major parts must be from the same period and at least 25 years of age to qualify. If at some time a replacement engine has been required, it is generally accepted that this is permissible or any other major singular part for that matter, other than the frame. it follows that the machine must represent a true likeness of the model specification. Please note that reproduction girder forks are not permissible.

In order to apply to the NOC for an Official Date Letter/NOC2 you must have the following:-

  • A completed application NOC/2 form from the Club.
  • The fully assembled machine should be complete and roadworthy. Do not apply if the machine is not assembled or you have just the frame only.
  • Images of both sides of the machine in it's current condition (2 copies of each) signed and dated.
  • Sharp images of both Frame No. and Engine No. including all prefixes (2 copies of each) signed and dated.
  • Please note: It may be necessary to remove the paint to verify the number. We cannot proceed with the application if the number is not clear. We often receive images that would be acceptable if the image was in focus, once again this holds up the process. Do not however try to enhance other than highlighting the digits. For instance by trying to over-stamp the original number if the number is weak or damaged send it as is.
  • Payment to The Norton Owners Club Ltd
