FBHVC Survey 2020
The National Historic Vehicle survey needs you!
Your contribution is essential to the future of the Historic Vehicle Industry
We are having to make the case for historic vehicles retaining their current access and freedoms on our roads more and more strongly, as we navigate the most challenging period in our history. In order to defend the future of historic vehicles, we need your help by completing this crucial survey.
The Yorkshire Post recently quoted Grant Shapps, Secretary of State for Transport as saying “I’m sorry internal combustion engine fans, I think its days are overall likely to be numbered.”
A local authority, in Wallingford, Oxfordshire, recently debated a motion, which was fortunately defeated, to cancel its historic vehicle rally and parade.
The historic vehicle community, our events, our freedoms to use the roads and even the fuel we use, are increasingly under threat amidst a changing landscape of political and environmental influences.
If we are to defend the use of historic vehicles, then we need to act and act now. The Federation needs your help.
The FBHVC is in the process of carrying out its 2020 National Historic Vehicle Survey, an update to a similar survey undertaken in 2016. If we are to represent the case for historic vehicles in the best possible way, we need to have up-to-date information on how important the movement is to the economy and our heritage, particularly in current COVID-19 circumstances.
The answers you give in this survey will help shape the future for historic vehicles in Great Britain for the next 5 years.
The FBHVC aims to lobby the Government against adverse legislation and restrictions that may affect the future for historic vehicles. But, in order to achieve a positive result, we need reliable data on the significance and size of the historic vehicle movement.
The survey takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete, depending on the answers you give. Please complete the survey in one sitting.
On submission of your questionnaire, you will be given the opportunity to enter a prize draw to win one of the following prizes: A year’s Club Insurance policy to the value of £250 including IPT, courtesy of Peter James Insurance, one of three pairs of tickets for the 2020 Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show with Discovery, Courtesy of Clarion Events, or one of 15 display copies of the FBHVC’s historic vehicle wall chart.
IMPORTANT: Please bear in mind your activities throughout 2019 when answering the question and not the current year, affected by the pandemic.
Closing date for entries: 12th October 2020
