Tractor Registrations

No registration number, no problem. Many years ago the NVTEC recognised owners were having problems registering restored tractors. Working with other vintage clubs this led to the DVLA introducing their V765 scheme in 1990. So far we have helped several thousand owners. Not only those with all makes of tractor but with other agricultural machines like combines and beet harvesters etc. If you require assistance with a registration, the best way to get this is to contact John Porter, the Club’s registration specialist by Email: registrations@nvtec-northsomerset.org  Two general points to consider. When you acquire a tractor try and find out as much as you can from the seller about its past history. Restoration work can sometimes remove helpful clues to its past history.  While every owner finishes up with their own problem most start with one or more of the following symptoms 

  • DVLA claim they have no record of this tractor. 

  • DVLA were very discouraging when you enquired. 

  • There is no number plate visible on the tractor. 

  • Part of the registration number is missing. 

  • The documents with the tractor are wrong. 

  • The seller had no documents for the tractor. 

  • The tractor is a recent import. 

  • The tractor has been neglected for many years. 

  • The serial number is missing. 

  • The finished tractor includes parts from other tractors. 

Before contacting John it would be helpful have a note of   

  • What make and model the tractor is? 

  • Any registration number visible? Any serial number visible? 

  • Any letters you have had from the DVLA about it, (often their exact wording can conceal a clue.) 

Have a pen and paper handy to make a note of any suggestions for further research to find more clues about your tractor’s history. 

 Currently the cost for Members of the NVTEC is £20.00, and for non-members who would like to join the NVTEC £45.
