Welcome to The Riley Register

The Register is a club for anyone with an interest in Pre War Riley Motor Cars that were built in Coventry between 1899 and 1940.

We provide comprehensive services to members; including a wide range of spares, regalia, social events, rallies, club newsletters and a quarterly Bulletin.

If you own a Vintage, Veteran or PVT Coventry Riley or are an active enthusiast, then you need The Riley Register!

As well as being a very social club the Riley Register provides very real support to owners of Pre War Riley Cars. For a modest annual subscription the Register supplies a wide range of services and while we encourage the restoration, preservation and use of good original cars, everyone with an interest in Pre War Riley cars (including specials) are encouraged to join.

New Members

This is a link to a one-page handout describing what the Register is, and how you can join. It has been produced by  Forum contributors to publicise the Register at old car events – or indeed at any events where there may be folks interested in pre-war cars. This is a member-led initiative and the idea is that any member can download the file and print-off a handful of copies at home for distribution at any appropriate event they are planning to attend, whether national or local.  gathering. It is entirely optional of course and we leave it up to members to decide when it would be appropriate and when not.
