Machine Dating Service (UK
The Jawa CZ Owners Club has information on machines made from 1929 to 2016.
Although we cannot always precisely date machines, as JAWA CZ regarded
engine/frame numbers as state secrets for the majority of its existence, we
can provide a dating certificate acceptable to DVLA.
To obtain a dating certificate it is necessary to contact the club
archivist via the club website in the first instance, or by using the
address at the front of Torque, the club magazine.
The issuing of a certificate cannot be done via email. Email can
only be used for other MDS enquiries. In all cases, it is necessary to
supply, in writing by post, the FULL engine and frame numbers including all
prefixes or suffixes and other data from the headstock/VIN plate.
Good quality photographs are required. As a minimum you should have
photos of both sides of the bike, the Engine Number, and the Frame Number.
Photographs should be endorsed as correct and signed by the applicant.
Details of old registration numbers, or if you have any original Bills of
Sale or Service documents then this will make the job much easier. Also
needed is some information as to what you think the bike is, and what year
it may be made, if it is relevant. And the final finished colour scheme.
In fact, any dated information you can
supply on your machine will make your case that much stronger. Please
note that materials supplied will be retained for our records unless
return requested and postage supplied. We are required by DVLA to keep
records of all Machine Dating requests.
is the DVLA Procedure to follow.
If your vehicle does not have a registration number:-
Any foreign made bike imported with no UK registration will first need
to be recorded with HMRC using a NOVA form. .A Certificate of Conformity
is not needed for older registrations, only for new imported machines.
Fill in the relevant sections (you will have to write "manufactured in
19XX" in section 3, as there is no box to state age of vehicle) and post
it to the address on the form. HMRC should take about 14 days to write
back confirming it has been recorded and no duty or VAT is due. There is
no charge for NOVA.
Obtain proof of the year of manufacture of the vehicle from a club or
organisation relevant to the make, model or type of vehicle. (Dating
Arrange MOT Test Certificate and Insurance cover. This can be done using
the frame number.
Obtain Form V62 from a Post Office or download from the DVLA
website.Complete the V62 application form and submit to DVLA with your
Nova letter, Dating information, Test Certificate, Insurance documents
and appropriate licence fee.
If the DVLA is satisfied with the application they will issue an
appropriate age related registration number and licence the machine for
road use. N.B. - Non-suffix numbers are issued non-transferable. The
registration document should follow within six weeks.
If your vehicle has its original registration number:-
All forms can be found on
the DVLA website. The Club is a member of the FBHVC and on the DVLA list
of approved clubs for validation of UK based machines so please
contact us. Emails should not exceed 2mb.
Although rare, should DVLA insist that the inspection of a machine
by a Club Technical Expert be necessary to clarify its authentication,
all expenses incurred will be charged accordingly to both club members
and non-members alike.
There is no charge for club members
using our services but there is a fee of £35.00 for non members.
Please note that the final decision on acceptance of all applications
rests with the DVLA.
