The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) is a grouping of over 400 clubs and museums together with some 1500 trade and individual supporters. The aim of the Federation is to uphold the freedom to use old vehicles on the roads without any undue restriction and to support its member organisations in whatever way it can.

FBHVC actively seeks information about legislative proposals that are likely to have an impact on the historic vehicle community. When necessary it campaigns to influence the decision making process to remove, or at least minimise, any adverse results. FBHVC, working with and through the international body, the Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens (FIVA), aims to monitor EU proposals in just the same way as it does with home-grown UK legislation. FIVA employs a professional lobbyist to monitor the output of the EU commission. He reports to all European member organisations regularly and FBHVC takes a lead in responding to and countering potential problems.

The Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens (FIVA) is an international federation of historic vehicle clubs, predominantly catering for preserved self-propelled road vehicles of all kinds and more than twenty years old. It promotes and protects our historic vehicle heritage for future generations. One of FIVA's aims is to be an organisation representative of the historic vehicle movement able to influence legislation in the various countries and in Europe, in order to safeguard the interests of the movement, i.e. basically to ensure the freedom of use of those vehicles on public roads.
