A Certificate of Description is required for some historical events. Owners will get a certificate for historical vehicles to prove that they are what they say they are (classical built vehicles). The CoD certificate number will digitally update to your vehicle record and a PDF certificate of the approved application will be sent from MSNZ.

A CoD Application can only be applied by the vehicle owner. Go into your vehicle record, drop down the vehicle history section, and click add form. Select the Certificate of Description Application from the dropdown. The vehicle details will be pre-filled, complete all other fields, and then submit. A payment cart will pop up for you to pay any fees. MSNZ will then review your application.
