FIVA International identity card
FIVA defines a historic vehicle as a mechanically propelled road vehicle:
- which is at least 30 years old
- which is preserved and maintained in a historically correct condition
- which is not used as a means of daily transport
- and which is therefore a part of our technical and cultural heritage
Procedure for vehicles in countries with FIVA representation
In accordance with the Technical Code of the FIVA the application form (appendix A of the FIVA Technical Code) must be submitted to the ANF (Autorité National FIVA/National FIVA Authority) of the country where the vehicle has a current registration (if the vehicle is not road registered to the ANF of the country where the owner is legally a resident) before a FIVA Identity Card can be issued.
Procedures differ from country to country, so please refer to the ANF of the country in which your vehicle is registered for instructions.
If accepted the ANF will then issue a FIVA Identity Card valid 10 years or until the ownership of the vehicle is changed. The Identity Card remains the property of FIVA and must be returned to the issuing authority or FIVA upon request. The Identity Card is solely for identification purposes, it is no guarantee of the vehicle’s authenticity and is not be used for commercial purposes or proof of the vehicle’s history.
Guidelines for Scrunineers
FIVA may, upon application, issue an Identity Card to vehicles which comply with the requirements of the Technical Code. These guidelines are intended to provide information on documents and proceedings to assist ANF (National Governing Body), officials and experts, concerned with handling the issue of FIVA Identity Cards.
The classification in the FIVA Identity Card does not include any statement about the value, or the quality of, the vehicle but solely summarises the history of the vehicle in short form and therefore the vehicle is eligible for all events held under FIVA regulations.
