I thought this may be of interest to anyone with a car that was first registered in the UK.

It is from the Q&A section of the March 2016 edition of Practical Classics.

Interesting.

I wondered what they meant by 'historic vehicle' and whether this only applied to post-1974 vehicles.

But I read the form and it is possible to obtain these details for any vehicle you own, not necessarily an old one.

Sorry that should obviously have been pre-1974 vehicles!

I obtained my history via the DVLA when I bought my 1976 Shadow in 2000.
The cost then was 5.00 and it was very quick to arrive.
However, the first owner had a private plate fitted from new and so the search was done on the age related plate, so you can have some information missing.
I managed to pick up on the first owner via Jack Barclay's records, as he supplied the car new.
