As an authorised vehicle owners club we are accredited by the DVLA Swansea to issue Dating Certificates regarding Triumph motorcycles, and to advise owners on registration matters. During this time many records were lost, destroyed or otherwise not transferred and by closure of the process in many existing vehicles were not on the new system. Under no circumstances should you send original documents to Swansea at this stage in case of loss. Either way the first step is to obtain a dating certificate based on the frame number of your motorcycle. We need to see photos of both sides of the machine, and its frame and engine numbers, also the originals of any documentation you have to support the application. Send these by registered post to us for authorised stamped copies, which DVLA will accept. You can apply for the registration personally based on these documents if you wish or the club will handle the complete process for you if required, for a fee.
