If you have no suitable documentation, the moped can still be registered. It will be given an ‘age-related’ registration mark (ie: one that looks appropriate for the age of the moped) provided that you can supply evidence of its age. The evidence of age can be a foreign registration document in the case of an imported vehicle. For the rest, DVLA requires a statement from the vehicle’s manufacturer. Of course, many manufacturers have disappeared over the years, while others will no longer have information about vehicles they made long ago. If the manufacturer is unable to assist and the vehicle is over 25 years old, the DVLA will consider evidence from an enthusiasts’ club, like the EACC. We are able to determine the date of most makes of cyclemotor, autocycle and moped (and some other vehicles too) from details such as the frame and engine numbers. We charge a fee of £10 for this service.
