Hello all,

My D7 has no V5 and i really want it to be on its original plate, the archives have not turned up any proof as all has been destroyed, the only thing i have is a tax disc with the reg on it.

IS that any good as proof to get its number back

 

Whats my next step? do i have to get a dating cert and if so how?

 

thanks in advance

 

(PS i did try looking  but couldn't find the info)

Tax disc won't link to the bike (frame number or engine number) so unfortunately it will probably be an age related plate.

The tax disc isn’t sufficient to reclaim the original registration as Neil has pointed out. If you have already checked the original registration record with the local authority and they have no records then your only option is an age related plate. I really don’t understand why people don’t like age related, no one can tell it’s not the original number unless they see the V5, it doesn’t affect value, and it’s nothing really to do with originality, just the method of getting the machine road legal. It didn’t leave the factory with a registration did it?

All the information you need is right here on the website. Have a look here - ** Please log in to view **

That should tell you all you need to know about claiming an age related plate. Remember, your machine must be complete and roadworthy before DVLA will issue a V5

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a B175 almost ready for the road and a 76 Honda C90 in the workshop. A 1980 Honda CB400N now on the road and my everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster. All bikes (except the D5) are now for sale...

I'd love an age related plate that says BSA 175 C!
