About the Historic & Classic Vehicles Alliance

We're working hard to protect the future of our past

The HCVA is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to ensuring the survival of classic cars and the industries that support them against numerous challenges - including DVLA registration issues, the future of viable fuels, post-Brexit changes and unsuitable environmental legislation. We work to protect, preserve and celebrate this valuable heritage for the benefit of all.

"It has always been important to support individuals, companies and organisations that preserve our automotive heritage. The restoration and preservation of classic cars keeps our rich history in the automotive sector alive for future generations. As we move towards electrification and ever more stringent regulations, in my view it will become even more important to support and protect our classic automotive heritage."
