The IVVCC represents over 5000 historic car enthusiasts in Ireland and our affiliation to FIVA, the international governing body for the historic car movement means strength in numbers. The IVVCC pays an annual affiliation fee to FIVA which is funded by the fees paid by our affiliated clubs and we rely on the continued support of our affiliate clubs for this funding.
In addition to having the support of an international organisation, affiliated club events are included in the calendar of events on the IVVCC website and two copies of the IVVCC Journal, which is issued quarterly, are posted to each club secretary. All members of these clubs may advertise in the journal, can participate in most IVVCC events and are welcome at IVVCC club meetings.
The IVVCC has worked hard over the years to secure reasonable insurance rates and options for old cars, and successfully organised a special arrangement with AXA Insurance on public liability cover for all clubs affiliated to the IVVCC. Over the years, the IVVCC has successfully negotiated favorable old car arrangements with State departments resulting in reduced road tax, exemption from VRT for cars over thirty years old, and exemption from the NCT for pre-1980 cars. It is of great value to the IVVCC to have an extended membership across the country, giving political clout when lobbying on behalf of issues that affect our hobby.
I trust you will see the benefits of being affiliated to the IVVCC and we look forward to receiving your affiliation fee of €65 in due course.
