Classic car fans please take note
Anyone with a classic vehicle on a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) should be aware that older records of vehicles on a yearly SORN with Coleraine will not be transferred unless Swansea is provided with the latest red V5Cni as proof of the vehicle record.
So a vehicle on a yearly SORN will not automatically have its record transferred to Swansea. If you lose your V5Cni certificate, the record will also be lost as you can no longer prove your entitlement to the vehicle registration number as access to the Coleraine database closed in July.
This could affect thousands of vehicles here and I would urge anyone with a classic vehicle to check to see if their record has been transferred to Swansea.
