Conditional historic vehicle (HV) registration (or 'Club plates') is available for VMCC club members' motorcycles made up to 31 December 1947. Historic plates are issued by the RTA and entitle the owner to use their machine on authorised VMCC events and invitation events run by other historic motorcycle clubs. Occasional test runs are permissible within 10km of the garaging address.
Historic Vehicle registration is much cheaper than normal vehicle registration and reflects the limited vehicle usage allowed under the HV scheme.
