BMW classic changing car to Historic status with DVLA

You need to change the status of your classic to "Historic" as I am currently doing. You need to supply proof of the build date to the DVLA with the log book classification now written and signed to "Historic". If the DVLA does agree with this they will send the log book back as Historic and your free road tax disc to display in the usual place.

BMW Classic (formally Mobile Tradition) will email you the build date, you can print that out and send it with the log book. Failing that you might need a proper certificate from BMW proving this, but they charge £50 I recall.

Lastly if it is an 02 I am prepared to write a headed letter confirming the date, if you can get the email and forward to me from BMW Classic email address; info.konzernarchiv@bmwgroup.com

Here's the form and the email is on there too; http://www.bmw-classic.com/bmw_classic/_common/_shared/offers_service/classic_center/certificate/order_form_certificate_en.pdf?download=true
