Could they not hit the road on a Q plate, under SVA rules?

The cars I mean, not Birkin and his not girlfriend.

I believe you can get an age related plate nowadays, instead of a Q.... ? (In certain circumstances..)

I believe so too Mike, but it's the circumstances bit that baffles me. Max has mentioned the Q plate which I believe would be appropriate for the Alvis as even though the chassis & engines are of a known (old) age, everything else (including the fuel injection) would be new. Plus, you can't change from a Q plate and put a personalised registration on the car (which I'm sure would not suit an Alvis owner!)

Q plates are issued when the age of the vehicle is not able to be determined. That would not be appropriate for these cars.

To get an age-related number, the car must be 'built from genuine period components from more than one vehicle, all over 25 years old and of the same specification as the original vehicle'
Again, not appropriate to these cars.

As these cars are built from new parts, then they must meet current build standards to comply with registration requirements. These cars would either fall under:
a - 'National Small Series Type Approval Certificate' scheme, which requires a car built in 2019 to conform to the 2019 UK build regulations.
b - 'Basic Individual Vehicle Approval' scheme, which consists of 'either a visual inspection or a simple test on the vehicle to ensure, as far as practicable, that it complies with the regulations.'

There has got to be a way of registering, probably Ďbí above, as Iím sure itís only the Aston that was announced as Ďtrack onlyí.

Mind you, there is nothing to stop an owner buying an old plate and just sticking it on a race car without registering the number to it. As long as they didnít use it on the road, of course. The number would just be on retention, so maybe thatís why many replicas and continuations I see racing have road plates.....

DRLs are optional in the IVA testing guide.

The mandatory lighting for this car would be:
2x Front Position
2x Rear Position
2x Stop Lamps
2x Front Direction/Hazard
2x Rear Direction/Hazard
2x Main Beam Headlights
2x Dipped Beam Headlights
1x Rear Registration Lamp
1x Rear Fog Lamp
1x Reversing Lamp

A number of these can be incorporated into single units.

The full IVA guide can be found here.
