I am no fan of the DVLA I have always supported the view that road tax should be on petrol and an mot/ownership scheme would be far fairer and cheaper.
However given the present system the closure of local DVLA offices raises a lot of questions around re-registering rebuilt basket cases not on the DVLA system and the inspection of documentation,initial MOT without reg number and the bike itself
this is all in the FBHVC newsletter https://fbhvc.co.uk/files/2012/02/FBHVC-Newsletter-No.1-2012-PDF.pdf
where the section by Nigel Harrison sets out the problems very clearly
There is a consultation available until March and I hope the scott club makes its views known ,My guess/hope is that the Historic vehicle clubs will be asked to increase their voluntary role and if so we should make our presence known.
I have raised this matter with other one make clubs I am a member of.
