Joining FSOC: New Memberships

Joining FSOC is a TWO STEP Process. Firstly we'd like you to register your vehicle(s) with us. This won't take more than 5 minutes per vehicle (As long as you have your engine and chassis number to hand). Please go ahead and click the 'Register your vehicle' button now. To save time, if you have multiple vehicles, you can register one immediately and return here to register the others when time permits.








Once you have completed the Vehicle Registration Form come back here and  select/click-on the membership category below to complete the joining process.

Annual subscription costs from January 1st 2022 - 31st December 2022 are as follows:


  • UK: 35 UK Pounds

  • Rest of the World: 43 UK Pounds

The difference is purely magazine postage which, since Brexit, has meant that EUR and RoW are the same. 

These prices reflect the different postage costs to the various regions.  

YOU DO NOT  NEED TO OWN A SIDEVALVE TO BE AN FSOC MEMBER.  Just select "No Sidevalve Yet!" on the various drop-down lists below.   (Then start searching for a Sidevalve ! )


Towards the end of the online purchase process you will be offered an option to add additional family members to your purchase. These are charged at £1.50 each for all geographic locations.   

Family Member is a person living at the same address, or an immediate family member (as child/father/spouse).


Once completed your welcome email should arrive in a few days and your membership card and magazine in the post (To the address associated with your Payment Method) within the next 7-10 working days.


We accept PayPal and all popular Credit and Debit Cards.


Note: We use the PayPal Secure Payments System to process your order,

but you don't need to 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.
