When registering your vehicle they may be asking for ‘proof of build’.

In essence, this is their way of saying, we don’t know when the vehicle was made.

The year of the creation of a vehicle so to speak, is what the DVLA uses to reference all the makes and models in their database. How else will they know if it’s a classic, or even simply what rules apply to it?

If you are struggling to register your vehicle then we can help with the rest of the process!

Sometimes the DVLA refers to these as date of build letters.

They can often be the minimum that they’ll accept so you might even need more to prove the origin and age of the vehicle.

We’re here to help and have registered some interesting cars in our time so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
