The National Traction Engine Trust

On Friday 12th February John Riley met with Colin Harris to affect the handover of his role as the NTET’s V765 Scheme Administrator.  John has been the NTET’s administrator of the DVLA’s V765, original registration scheme, since 2012.  The NTET is very grateful to John for taking on this role and would like to express its thanks to him for the diligent manner in which he has undertaken the work.

The handover to Colin Harris coincides with the DVLA’s strategy of tightening up the processes involved in authenticating applications for original registration marks; which includes having all Clubs and Societies involved with V765 applications re-applying for registration with the DVLA.  One of Colin’s first jobs was to help complete the NTET’s V765/2 ‘Vehicle Owner’s Club Registration Form’; not exactly rocket science but the accompanying booklet provides a good introduction as to how the Scheme works.

The NTET is grateful to Colin for taking over this important role which falls under the umbrella of the Technical Services Unit.  Colin can be reached via email at or by writing to NTET V765 Scheme Administrator, c/o 205 Main Street, Thornton, Leicester. LEICS LE67 1AH.  His telephone number is 01530 230703.
