Welcome to the Rover P4 Drivers' Guild Website

The Rover P4 Drivers' Guild wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Rovering New Year.

 

2020 Guild Membership

Rover P4 Drivers’ Guild membership for 2020 can be purchased using the secure e-Commerce service accessed by the menu item on the left. Regrettably we need to make a small increase in membership fees for 2020 to reflect rising costs. The last increase took place four years ago and we believe the new fees are on a par with the amounts charged by similar clubs, and actually still cheaper than many. The new fees are £30 for UK members, £38 for other parts of Europe and £40 for the rest of the World.

Another reason for not delaying, and for joining for the whole year rather than just part of it, is that a lack of membership can sometimes leave you without insurance. Many classic car insurers charge low premiums on the understanding that the policy holder is a member of the recognised club for the model, in this case the Guild. Skimp by delaying your membership renewal, and you could find yourself not covered if there’s an insurance claim. In the event of a claim, Insurers are at liberty to contact the Guild to confirm your membership. Therefore, if your P4 is insured on this basis, we strongly recommend that your membership of the Guild remains current for the whole year. We are aware that when Guild members are making insurance arrangements, insurers sometimes request membership numbers before commencing cover. Please note that the Guild does not issue membership numbers and this is not necessary for the insurers. Sending a photocopy/scan of your current membership card should be sufficient.

If you have any queries then please contact membership@roverp4dg.org.uk. 

Guild Membership Benefits

We are very pleased to announce that Guild members can now obtain a 10% discount with a selection of suppliers, including rechroming, electric clock repair kits and Dinitrol products. These benefits extend the range already on offer to Guild members, e.g. discounted insurance premiums. Information about this is included within the latest edition of the Overdrive magazine and online within the Members Only Pages of this website.

Also available, is James Taylor's new book "Rover P4 - The Sales Literature", which catalogues all the advertising brochures produced by the Rover Company during the P4's production. Its price to members is £10 or £11 UK (elsewhere). Price to non-members is £14 UK or £15 UK elsewhere. (NB prices do not include postage & packing).
