Sign Up - Trade & Industry

Join us today to play your part.

We have a range of membership options available to suit - the most important thing is that you add your voice to the chorus that is demanding a viable future for this world-leading British industry.

Why Join?

  • The challenges our industry is now experiencing and those coming down the road fast are serious - and in many cases may lead to job losses and business closures.  

    We have created this non-profit organisation for a single purpose - to do everything that can be done to protect the future for us all. Our insights, expertise and advice will keep members ahead of the curve on upcoming developments, helping them stay fully informed as they build and refine business plans.

    Aside from our campaigning work we are also working to increase customer confidence in our industry - reliable common standards, effective consumer protection and a code of conduct. Vehicle owners will see the benefits of dealing with HCVA member businesses.

  • HCVA membership brings confidence to both your customers and your suppliers and offers important benefits, including:

    Access to an in house importation and registration help programme.

    Support in handling potentially damaging legislation.

    Access to support and advice from our HCVA experts.

    Inclusion in the proposed HCVA promotion and marketing campaigns of all members

    We are committed to protecting jobs and ensuring the classic vehicle sector is a viable career choice for the engineers of the future. Joining the HCVA helps support our vital work in promoting and preserving the industry for the long term - ensuring a viable and flourishing classic vehicle sector for years 

  •  So joining is a sensible and pragmatic response to what we are all facing. We’re taking our futures, and the prospects of generations to come, in our hands.
