DVLA Release New Laws on Black & White Number Plates

 

The DVLA have announced changes concerning information on black and silver number plates which will take effect from 1 January 2021.

The changes being introduced on 1 January 2021 will affect the ability of vehicles registered in the historic tax class to display the old style pre-1973 black and silver number plates.

Following the change in definition of a historic vehicle for vehicle tax exemption purposes in 2015, an issue was identified in the regulatory requirements for the valid display of a black and silver number plate. This resulted in an unintended consequence where any vehicle over 40 years old and registered in the historic tax class would be permitted to display an old style black and silver number plate. This was despite the law previously requiring all vehicles first registered after 1 January 1973 to only display the yellow and white number plates with black characters.

As this was never the intention, DVLA have sought to rectify this through a legal correction which will shortly be implemented. The change seeks to prevent any vehicle constructed after 1 January 1980 from the ability to display the black and silver number plate despite being recorded in the DVLA’s historic tax class. Those vehicles with a construction date prior to 1 January 1980 will continue to be able to legally display black and silver number plates to avoid any undue costs of replacement.

Also note that from 1 January it will no longer be permissible to fix a new number plate displaying a Euro symbol. Number plates already fixed to vehicles are unaffected. DVLA will also be introducing a new British Standard for number plates produced from 1 September 2021 which will mean all current style number plates that are first fixed to a vehicle from that date must meet the technical requirements contained in that standard.

Chairman’s Letter To Members:

A challenge for all of us

===>>> Read the "Chairman's Letter To Members" as PDF

What is confronting us is a challenge to us all; including the community we live in, workplaces, families and friends - so not only in the Panther Car Club. But as they say, united we stand and united we will get through this period. Our hearts and thoughts go out to the people who have been affected by this unprecedented event and we all appreciate around the world front line workers working to contain this coronavirus. Your Committee is monitoring the situation and will try and keep everyone informed of any change in the PCC and Classic Car event calendar, especially when some of the isolation rules are lifted and we can get our Panthers on the Road and once again meet up.

This is probably the message I least expected to write, but with the UK and Europe escalating actions to slow the spread of the coronavirus , we, personally and as a club have a duty of care to each other and need to play our part in looking after ourselves, our family, friends and members. You may believe that you are fit and healthy and at low risk, but the same may not be true of anyone that you come into contact with. Moreover, we don’t know who has the virus, and symptoms can take a couple of weeks to emerge, so you could find yourself in contact with someone who is unaware they have it. Due to this all Area meets and Classic Car events home and abroad have been cancelled including Essen which announced a postponement until the 24th -28th June. This is looking unlikely with the new updates on the virus in Germany and the Hannover Messe in June cancelled already we will keep you all updated. Drive it Day on the 26th April has been cancelled. However, enthusiasts of historic vehicles are still encouraged to participate on 26 April 2020 in the mass sharing, via social media, of images and memories of themselves and their families out and about in their historic vehicles during a previous year’s Drive it Day. Use your chosen social media platform to share images and stories of memorable trips with your historic vehicles or indeed, what you might be working on within the ‘self-isolation’ of your garage or shed. VE 75 celebrations, which I am sure some would have been taking part in, have been postponed. The Derbyshire, Spain & Italy tours are postponed until 2021.

Regarding the Silverstone Classic in July, the latest news and update states that it is expected to go ahead, and the special ticket package has been extended until the end of April.

More importantly it is hoped that, by September, the isolation rules will have eased and our Club Grand Gathering on 4th - 6th September can go ahead. Details are in the magazine and we will endeavour to keep you updated if anything changes, but we sincerely hope we can all get together and celebrate the club’s 40th Anniversary.

Your Committee is working hard to keep everything running in the club and Andy G, against all odds, has agreed with our printers that the magazine can be printed and sent out as their last print before they close due to the virus. With all the time on peoples (washed!) hands during isolation, now is the time to put pen to paper and write an article for the magazine. I know by the amount of emails and enquiries I have received, that a lot of you are working on your cars. Why not tell us what you are doing.
Please remember we can still communicate and be active through our Website , Forum, Facebook , text, email and something we do not do enough of these days is chat to one another . As with all of the committee I am happy to help with any enquires you may have and If I can’t answer I will pass on to those who can. I have plenty of regalia in stock although personalised embroidered items may be a problem but I do have some items available.

This is an unprecedented time in the history of not only our club but Worldwide, impacting on every aspect of our lives, both personally and professionally. Our Panthers are our Passion, but not the main game. The main game for all of us remains ensuring the safety of everyone - families, friends and the wider community. This remains a complicated and evolving situation that reminds us that we are all part of a broader society with a responsibility to look out for one another.

Thank you all for your continuing support of our wonderful Club.

Keep Safe

Val Bridges
Chairman Panther Car Club

Forum News PLEASE Read.

The Forum as you are aware can be a very useful way of communicating with other Panther  Owners. It gives access to  problems members  are having with their cars  and the solutions others have found.  This has been and is proving so useful to many who are experiencing technical difficulties. But how to do jobs and where to get parts are only a couple of useful points the Forum has to offer. When one is doing a restoration project on a car this facility can be the answer to your prayers. Information on Cars for sale and  what’s going on in the Panther Car Club are all on the Forum.
Many of you (PCC members) have signed up for the Club Forum, but are not getting full benefit from what it has to offer. If you have registered, of which 372 of you have, do not forget the Forum has a PCC 'members only' area which is accessible only by registering your PCC membership No with Nick Woodward (Forum Admin). To do this just email Nick giving your Name,  Forum Name and Panther Car Club membership number (this can be found on your membership card) Nick will then automatically give you full access to the Forum allowing you to use all areas of the forum that so many of you are missing out on . For those of you are not Panther Car Club members & only have access to the general forum area, you will only be given full access by joining the Panther Car Club (see www.panthercarclub.com).
So get busy drop Nick an email  itmustbemagic (at) googlemail.com
