Dating of Vehicles


The need to have a car dated usually occurs when entering a competitive event that differentiates entrants according to the age of their vehicle. It is also of value if proof of age and authenticity is required, eg. in the case of a sale. In order to obtain an independent and authoritative assessment as to the age of a vehicle, members should follow the procedure as set out below: 

1) The GRMC which is associated to SAVVA, has a Dating Officer on the Committee, Sheridan Renfield, who is specifically designated to assist in obtaining a Dating Certificate and/or a Dating Plaque from SAVVA.

2) Members should in the first instance, resort to the SAVVA website : SAVVA Dating of Vehicles. Information can be gleaned from this site where the necessary forms  can be downloaded at :

Those members who do not have access to the web can obtain the Forms from the Dating Officer.

N.B. Although the site is in the public domain, the issuing of a Dating Certificate and/or Plaque is only available to members of the GRMC which is associated with SAVVA. Consequently, all communication with SAVVA must be through the GRMC’s Dating Officer.

3) SAVVA levies a nominal charge for administration, plus the cost of either a Certificate or Plaque, or both.
