Update

With the help of our great volunteers and staff at Allen House we making good progress in working through the backlog of enquiries and while we are not taking on new DVLA/Registration requests at the moment, we hope to open up for new enquiries around mid May 2021. Thank you for your patience.

The Club’s Library is still very much alive and active, but service on anything like the same basis as in the old normal is not going to be possible for some months. All library and DVLA enquiries should be emailed to Library@vmcc.net, alternatively you can send via post.

Because social distancing is not realistically possible within the limited space available, the Library has been closed to readers visiting in person since March 2020, and this is likely to remain the case until social distancing becomes significantly less necessary.
