The Riley Register website is the home
of Coventry Riley owners, active
enthusiasts and club members.
Welcome to The Riley RegisterThe 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!

The Riley Register Spares website requires planned maintenance and will be unavailable for the weekend of the 11th and 12th of November. Website orders placed late on the Friday are expected not to be progressed until the following Monday. This work does not impact the Riley Register Website except that the link on that site will take you to a holding page
Here 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 as a simple and cheap way 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. Obviously we shouldn’t make a nuisance of ourselves with these things, but it could be useful to have a few to hand as a sort of “calling-card” if anyone appears to be showing an interest in our cars or in the club gathering. It is entirely optional of course and we leave it up to members to decide when it would be appropriate and when not.

The renewal period for Subscriptions and the period of grace has expired. Anyone looking to renew their Subs will have to use the New Member form.
Members who are unable to log into the Members Area should check that they have renewed their Subscriptions with the Membership Secretary. Those still outstanding in spite of his best efforts have been deleted.
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.
Your Area Secretary is your first port of call for what’s going on in your area. Find out who he or she is and where local members meet on a regular basis – you’ll be very welcome (with or without your Riley) PDF download.
The Online Club Shop is now available in the Members part of this web site allowing Members to pay on line. Log In and browse !
Members should log in via the Riley Regalia Menu at the top of the page.
BOOKS are now also available from the Club Shop.
Riley Register Spares are produced to original drawings and specification where possible, using the latest manufacturing, quality and traceability systems. They are only available to bona fide members of the Register from our Central Stores. In the unlikely event that we don’t stock it we may well know who does. Follow the NEW Spares web link
