The “Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens” (FIVA) was founded in 1966 and represents the historic vehicle movement globally.

Over recent years FIVA has become truly international with significant growth from former Eastern Bloc countries, China and the Middle East. In total there are 62 countries associated with FIVA who in turn represent 1.6 million historic vehicle enthusiasts.

The FBHVC represents British interests within FIVA and has significant representation on the FIVA Board and Commissions. David Whale, our Chairman, leads the British team as Senior Vice President – Operations and he is accompanied by Tony Davies, Director for Trade & Skills and Zoltán Gárdos, Director for Membership. FIVA works through a series of Commissions and we are represented on Legislation by David Hurley, Technical by Paul Loveridge, Motorcycle by Andy Steers, Events by Colin Francis and Culture with the imminent appointment of Keith Gibbins.
FBHVC is the UK authority for the issue of FIVA Identity Cards.

The cards provide a simple guide to a vehicle’s history, authenticity and specification and are required for events run under FIVA rules.

Alternatively, if you wish to receive a form through the post, please contact the Secretary.

FBHVC can only issue I D cards for vehicles that are registered in UK. Cards are valid for ten years, but are non-transferable so expire on a change of owner if that is earlier.
