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.


Please contact the Registrar if you need any assistance with the above
