Yamaha Motorcycle Dating Service

NO, we cannot find your perfect partner - we trust you already have that but need to verify her and get an age related registration !!

We are accredited by the DVLA to issue Certificates of Age on any motorcycle. If you have an old motorcycle that has never been registered, or one that the DVLA do not have any records for, and you wish to retain the original (or obtain an age-related) registration number plate then you need this service. Back in 1974, the DVLA started computerising vehicle registrations. Before then registrations were carried out by County Councils or Borough Councils, but Centralised Registration pulled all these records together onto a computerised system. Of course, many registrations were lost or not transferred by the various councils, and when all the old records had finally been entered (by about 1980) there were still many vehicles that were not on the new register.

In order to retain an original (or obtain an age-related) registration number, you first need to apply for a Dating Certificate from the appropriate vehicle enthusiasts club. The Aircooled RD club is an authorised vehicle enthusiasts club.

To apply for a Date Certificate for your motorcycle you need to get together as much documentation about your machine as possible, and as many photos as you can get your hands on. As a minimum you should have photos of both sides of the bike, the Engine Number, and the Frame Number. If you have any original Bills of Sale or Service documents then this will make the job much easier. In fact, any dated information you can supply on your machine will make your case that much stronger. Once you have got all your evidence you need to send it to the Club's Machine Registrar along with your payment. The service costs £15.00 for members of the Club and £30.00 for non-members which includes club membership for one year. Easiest way is to join the Club first by going HERE and then going to our dedicated Dating certificate site HERE You cannot receive a Dating Certificate via the Club unless you are a member.
