I got to here about the FBHVC through the LAC (Lancashire Automobile Club) of which Im a member.

The idea behind it is:

FBHVC urges all owners of licensed historic vehicles to use them on 17th April – every year. This will be a truly national annual event and one that all enthusiasts can take part in wherever they live. It’s absolutely free of entry forms, fees and red tape.

It’s not necessary for owners to go to a show or to take part in an event, FBHVC just wants owners to get their vehicles out so they can be seen by the public. If the vehicle is suitable, it could be used instead of modern transport for daily activity. Owners could use them to go to work take a trip to the seaside, enjoy a day out in the country, visit a stately home or just go shopping.

For those with unlicensed, older, larger or slower vehicles for which such use would be impossible, impractical or inappropriate, owners could at least get them out and park them on the drive where they can be seen.

FBHVC exists to uphold the freedom to use old vehicles. "Drive It Day" is part of an ongoing campaign to raise public awareness of the historic vehicle movement. “After all,” Tony Beadle (the committee member who came up with the idea) asks, “what’s the point in fighting for a freedom if we don’t make the best possible use of it? “I thought 17th April would be a singularly appropriate day to choose to celebrate the glorious variety of mechanised road transport heritage that we have in this country because on that day in 1900, 64 cars set out from London on the first day of the famous Thousand Mile Trial – an incredible undertaking by those early motor cars and their pioneering drivers, and one which deserves annual celebration.”
