Welcome to our Membership Centre
Here's where you can join FSOC as a new member or renew an existing membership both online
We also support the more traditional manual applications and direct debit schemes:
(Forms may be found further down this page.)
Access to our online membership system is via the buttons further down this screen
Note: We use the PayPal Secure Payments System to process your order, but don't worry if you don't have a PayPal Account.
During the payment process you will be asked to 'Check out with PayPal'. Click this and at the bottom of the next screen click ‘Pay with Credit or Debit Card’. Fill in your card details on the next screen, click ‘No thanks’ (to opening a PayPal account) at the bottom and then ‘Continue’ to make payment. This is completely secure and your card details will be safe.
Alternatively you can print the latest version of the Membership Application Form and send this with the appropriate payment (cheque or postal order) to the Membership Secretary at the address shown on the form (Click on the PDF button below to download the latest form covering the current year).
If you wish to pay subsequent year's membership by Direct Debit, please print and complete a Direct Debit form and send in with your application form and the first year’s payment.

If you wish to pay subsequent years membership by Direct Debit,
please print and complete a Direct Debit form and send in with your
application form and the first year’s payment.

Membership is Jan-Dec annually. All renewals are due by the 31st December.
The actual Membership charge depends on two things: where you live and when you join.
The Club’s insurance policy now includes sales of new or second hand parts to residents of the USA and Canada or UK members intending to export cars to which FSOC parts have been fitted, to the USA or Canada.
Unfortunately it's the members in the rest of the world who must pay the most due to postal charges, but I think you'll agree the cost of a subscription to the FSOC still presents excellent value.
You'll notice too that unlike a lot of clubs who charge for a full year's membership regardless of when in the year you join, we allow both 6 and 15 months' membership for new members as well as the more usual full year. Members who pay the full year’s membership at any time of the year will receive all six issues of Sidevalve magazine (February, April, June, August, October & December). Those who opt for the six month’s membership will receive August, October and December. After September those taking the fifteen month option will receive October and December editions for the year in which they join.

After the initial application we would encourage existing members to complete a Direct Debit Mandate. This will allow us to reduce our admin costs and also ensure that you don't forget to renew your membership.
