Unipower GT Owners Club/Register Guidance on the DVLA’s Vehicle Registration Requirements
The Unipower GT Owners Club/Register is recognised by the UK’s Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to endorse applications from Unipower GT owners to either:-
(1) retain or recover a vehicle’s original UK registration number under the DVLA’s V765 Scheme (if the supporting evidence required by the DVLA can be provided).
(2) provide a Dating Certificate for a new age-related UK registration number when the original number has been lost or there is insufficient evidence to recover it.
Information on each of these Club Vehicle Registration Services is set out below. It is worth noting that in both cases, the DVLA requires that the application from the vehicle owner is endorsed by the relevant Vehicle Owners’ or Enthusiasts’ Club. For more details on the DVLA’s requirements see their website page relating to Vehicle Registration – Old Vehicles:-
(1) Applying to retain or recover a vehicle’s original registration mark
If you own a vehicle whose registration mark is not held by the DVLA, you may be able to successfully apply to recover it. You must, however, be able to provide documents that ‘prove’ the machine is linked to the registration mark. Ideally, this should be an old buff or green logbook. Without an old logbook the following may be considered at the discretion of the DVLA; an MOT certificate or an extract from approved archive records, or other official documentation that records the chassis / engine serial number with the registration mark.
If you can provide the required evidence, contact the DVLA (or your nearest Local Vehicle Registration Office) and check if the registration mark is listed on the DVLA computer. If the registration mark is not listed you will need to make an application using DVLA forms V765 and V55/5. Contact the DVLA to request these be posted to you – you can now do this on-line from the DVLA website.

DVLA Car Club Registration
Driver Vehicle Licencing Authority (UK) - V765 Register of Car Clubs
The Club has for many years been registered with the DVLA as an official Car Club recognised by the UK Government's Authority responsible for vehicle administration in the UK. See DVLA V765/1 page 13 HERE....
The DVLA look to the Registered Club's to assist them in the authentication of any cars of the Marque, that have come to their attention and require confirmation of authenticity.
The same also applies when the Owner of a Unipower GT is not in possession of the Original or Current Vehicle Logbook V5C, then the Club is authorised by the DVLA to provide such evidence as may be required to support any claim for a Period Correct Registration.
