The principal purpose of the SAHB is to encourage research, recording, compilation and publication of historical facts concerning the worldwide development of mechanically powered road transport and all related topics from inception to the present day.

The SAHB exists for all those of amateur or professional status who are interested in any aspect of motoring history, whether or not they are UK resident. The Society produces a quarterly publication: SAHB Times, an annual journal: Aspects of Motoring History; plus a comprehensive Membership Directory which assists in information exchange networking.

The SAHB holds two Seminars annually in the Spring and Autumn where speakers give presentations on an extensive variety of motoring-relating topics.
