    Historic Vehicle Tax (exemptiom application)

    Hi,

    I laid my car up way before the start of the SORN scenario so didn't have to
    faff about with sorting out car tax status - not sure when the Historic bit came in.
    (No one was legally obliged to get in the SORN loop if car is laid
    up before Jan 31 199

    Now I got my mot and insurance I've found out the car needs
    to be 'registered' as 'Historic' according to Form INF34 to get
    the free road tax.

    Fair enough, BUT the form says I have to take all docs to local
    office (in the city centre WTF) so they can presumably look at em.

    Hang on though, I've checked and the new style log book HAS the
    date of registration (1961) and the MOT and insurance have
    checked out online ( I tested it on DVLA so it's all sorted).

    WHY do they want me to show the paperwork!?!?!?!
    They issued the log book so why do they need me show em
    what is on THEIR system

    Has anyone done it on the phone??
    I really can't be tooled to go and sit in an office all friggin day.

    cheers
    KJ

    How you tax your vehicle in the Historic Vehicle tax class
    The first time you tax a vehicle in the Historic Vehicle tax class you must apply to a DVLA local office.


    Theaddress of your nearest local office can be found:
    • on the website Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) contacts : Directgov - Directories
    • by phoning 0300 123 1277 (you will be asked to give your postcode)
    DVLA local offices are open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday and from 9.30am to 5pm on the second Wednesday of every month.

    The documents you will need to produce

    • Vehicle Registration Certificate (V5C) – This must clearly show a date of registration or manufacture of the vehicle before *1 January 1973. If you do not have a V5C or if you think the age shown is incorrect, you will need to produce a dating certificate from a vehicle enthusiasts club or evidence from the vehicle manufacturer.
    *Note: Where a V5C indicates that the vehicle was registered up to and including 7 January 1973, we will let you register it as a Historic Vehicle.
    • An appropriate test certificate (if applicable)
    • A valid insurance certificate
    • A filled in ‘Application for a tax disc’ (V10) which you can get from Motoring forms : Directgov - Do it online,
    Post Office® branches that issue tax discs or a DVLA local office.

    The only place that can make a change to Taxation system re Historic is your local office .

    If it is still down as PLG you could go down and PAY for the road tax. What normally happens if they automatically change it to Historic ,refund the money and send a new disc. One person I know that didn't happen for over a year. There is always the possibility that if you don't follow the correct route they may wish to inspect so more time wasted.

    Hi Jim,

    I don't know why either, but it can only be done in person at a DVLA office, to my knowledege it has always been that way if you are changing the taxation class of a vehicle.

    When Bry "BigJob" went to the post office to tax Henry Hirise for the Nostalgia Nats they made him pay (£185 i think) and told him he would still have to go to DVLA office if he wanted the taxation class changed and a refund.

    Cheers.

    Russ.

    The only one you can change at a Post Office is to Disabled class from PLG . To change it back from Disabled to PLG you have to go to a LO . I knowoof one vehicle that had been taxed as ' Not Licensed' for thr past 4 years and that's what appears on the tax disc .

    Hi Kev,

    I had that problem, changing from disabled to PLG, was a few years ago now and before you had to pay for the logbook (V5 days).

    Queued up in the post office like you do, when i got to the front was told i had to go to Luton DVLA to tax it, a bit of split second thinking and asked "oh have you got a lost logbook form while i am here". I then copied the details off the logbook on to the form, tore the logbook up and threw it in the bin, ticked the box on the form that said the logbook had been damaged/defaced then queued up again.

    The jobsworth wasn't impressed but he had no choice but to tax the car, as all the paperwork was now in order.

    Cheers.

    Russ.

    Thats bad news Jim and suppose you couldn't get round it as you would have had to tax the car to change Taxation status. At this point i think my arse would be twitching Re: inspection possible. What does your logbook say about the engine installed?

    See this is confusing as when i changed mine to Historic all i had to do was go to the local post office with the logbook and on the book change it (taxation class) to historic and they gave me the tax disc and sent the logbook off at the same time

    Have you tried doing it online Jim?
