The Standard Motor Club is THE club for all Standard Owners and fans
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency is the body responsible for managing Vehicle Registration matters in the UK. Their records have been computerised since 1983, and this can cause issues if the vehicle that you have purchased as a "barn find" has not been on the road recently. If it is not in their database, it doesn't formally exist!
The Club's representative works with the DVLA in these instances. You should contact him to obtain the forms required by the DVLA to register your car, he will guide you to filling them in and they should be returned via the club for endorsement. The DVLA will then usually take the car onto their computer, approve the registration and allow the car to be taxed. This description is the simplest manner in which the process can be achieved, but the club will help if there are any complications. The rep has access to the Club's records and can usually help find documentary evidence to support the existence of your car and its registration number. He can also help with other registration difficulties.
There is a small charge for the basic service but the representative will also need to charge expenses, if, for example, travelling is required to inspect a vehicle or other expenses are incurred.
