Vehicle registration in the West Riding

Calling all those with a Passion for Vintage and Classic Vehicles!           Perhaps your family owned a Wolseley registration number UB 1216 in the 1930s or a Rolls Royce registration number JUG 873N in the 1970s.

If you own a classic or vintage vehicle and want to know more about its original registration mark then the Local Vehicle Registration Collection could hold the answer! This collection [C192] is held at our Wakefield office and consists of over a 1000 boxes of vehicle files, index cards and vehicle registers.

Collection ref: KC119. Held at our Kirklees office.
