    Has anyone the same problem as me?
    Series 3/SWB 1979 Trying to register it as Historic and tax it as exempt MOT and Road Tax and Post Office system won't allow. It..
    And on phoning DVLA The computer said Nooo also.
    Manuf date is unknown but the date of 1st Registration on V5 is Feb 1979.
    Dvla won't allow the 40 rolling years rule to apply as they state their record of Manuf is 31 Dec 1979 but that isn't shown on the V5??
    So won't allow the exemptions until 1st April 2020!!
    Anyone know if it's right that the vehicle could have been manufactured 10months after its been first registered ..??
    Should I apply for a heritage cert... Is there another way of confirming its true Manuf date or should I just die or out until 1st April 2020?

    The DVLA is right. If the manufacturing date isn't known, you have to wait until the following year, i.e. 2020. You could apply for a heritage certificate and I think DVLA will accept this but if I was you, I'd just wait until April. If you tax it, I believe the DVLA will refund any money that's left after the exemption date (if that makes sense) alternatively, you could sorn it for the next 3 months. It's winter after all, who uses a series in the winter?
