The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs Limited acts as the UK administrative agent for the issue of FIVA Identity Cards. The FBHVC has no input to the technical examination or validation of provenance of vehicles submitted for a FIVA Card. FIVA Cards can only be issued for vehicles that are registered in the UK. A copy of the vehicle detail page of the registration document (V5C) must be included in section B3 of the online application.

Cards are only valid for ten years but are non-transferable so expire on a change of ownership if that is earlier.

FIVA Cards provide a simple guide to a vehicle’s history, authenticity and specification and are required for events run under FIVA rules.

The fee for the issue of a standard FIVA Identity and Youngtimer Registration Card is £160.00, however a priority application will cost £210.00. Both prices include VAT and shipping of the completed card by tracked courier service to a UK address. International postage will be charged extra.

Owners who are members of affiliated FBHVC member organisations can benefit from a £30.00 discount. The fee payable for a standard FIVA Identity Card would be £130.00 or a priority application would be £180.00. The club declaration section must be completed in order to receive the discount.

Please allow up to three weeks from the date of completing your application for the issue of the FIVA card. If you need your card urgently, please tick the Express issue box on the initial application personal information section.
