The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has reiterated that it is working hard to help classic owners following criticisms raised at the latest Historic and Classic Vehicle Alliance (HCVA) conference.

The DVLA had been set to attend but withdrew from the event, where other speakers discussed its lack of progress in resolving cases involving classics (CCW, 17 April).

The agency told CCW: ‘The DVLA engages regularly and constructively with key classic car industry stakeholders through the Historic Vehicle User Group, which includes the HCVA and the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs. We will continue to work closely with these and other interest groups on all issues of concern around historic vehicles.

'We know that there are concerns and challenges'

‘The DVLA is working hard to help preserve classic cars as an essential part of British heritage and an example of British engineering excellence around the world. We know that there are concerns and challenges in this area, which is why we are engaging frequently and directly with a wide range of historic vehicle enthusiasts, and the industry, to ensure that the policies in place help to preserve historic and re-built cars for generations to come’.
