Gift Aid is a scheme available to charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs).  It means they can claim extra money from HMRC.


Under this scheme the NTET, as a registered charity, can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you pay as your membership subscription.  That is as long as you’ve paid enough tax and make the donation from your own funds.  

That means Gift Aid can increase the value of your subscription by 25%, and provide the NTET with further funds at no cost to yourself.

Benefits to Members

Membership is open to anyone who wishes to join—you do not need to be an owner or driver of an engine. Your membership subscription ensures our work can continue and also provides good value for money by way of “Steaming” magazine.

Steaming magazine is the quarterly, world acclaimed publication by the NTET. It provides communication from the Trust to its members, technical topics, historical articles and photos, information on events and engines around the U.K. as well as free classified adverts available to members.

The NTET produce an extensive rally list, detailing all NTET authorised events across the U.K. This list is distributed with Steaming, at rallies and in hundreds of tourist information centres across the U.K. so as to give maximum support and advertising to the authorised rallies. NTET authorised events have paid a small fee and agree to abide by the Rally Organisers Code of Practice, as produced by the Rally Organisers section of the NTET, which if followed ensures a safe and trouble free event.

An annual Driver Experience course is organised by the Engine Owners Committee and is tailored for beginners, intermediate and advanced students at a reasonable price for anyone over the age of 13. The course covers a range of subjects through technical lectures and practical demonstrations as well as hand on driving experience.
