V765 Services

The AMHT is recognised by the DVLA as the authority for authenticating requests for registering cars or re-allocation of original registration numbers to Aston Martin and post 1961 Lagonda cars.

We will supply a letter to your local Vehicle Licensing Office (VLO) indicating the year of manufacture of a particular car to allow an age related registration number to be issued where none existed before, or where there is insufficient supporting evidence for the re-issue of a number believed to be the original.

You are required to initiate this process yourself by completing the appropriate V765 and V55/5 forms.These are available from your nearest VLO.

The V765 may also be downloaded from the DVLA website.

You will need to send these forms, along with

  • A recent photograph of the vehicle
  • Documentary evidence, such as the original log book
  • A copy of the original factory record (Build Sheet)
  • A pre 1983 tax disc or MOT certificate, linking it to the original registration number.

We may also wish or be required to do an inspection of the car.

Finally, we will then send the endorsed application to the DVLA for processing.

The Fee for this service is £400.00 + vat (at the appropriate rate)*
