We’re the official owners club/group for Tesla in the UK, as listed on https://www.tesla.com/ownersclub, because of this partnership we have a strong relationship with Tesla UK and in EMEA and North America.
Currently, to facilitate our discussions we primarily use the group platform based within Facebook. We understand that not everyone has a Facebook account (or necessarily wants one) but it’s currently the best platform available for our extremely knowledgable and in-depth discussions. In the near future we will be giving access to all member to a dedicated forum platform but between now and then please use Facebook.
Currently, we have 4 main groups you can join:
1) Tesla Owners Group UK – Model S, 3, X, Powerwall or Roadster owners – VIN Verification required
- Your full name
- If the car is registered to yourself or a company
- The vehicle VIN
Once you have all of these to hand please make a join request on the Tesla Owners Group UK Group. Failure to supply a VIN will mean we decline your application.
After you’re approved you can also join the TOGUK Chat Group for more informal discussions, our regional sub-chapters for more local discussions or some of our other sub-groups for commonly shared interests.
1.1) Join as a supporter (not required but recommended to get priority access to events, welcome pack, voting privileges, referral cards, cable rental & other exclusive items)
1.2) Make a join request to our main discussion group (VIN required):
Because without confirmation you’re an owner we cannot keep our close relationship with Tesla. Our users have access to exclusive information and events that are not for the public, by restricting membership it keeps this private.
It also ensures our users know they’re speaking with someone that already owns or is soon to own a Tesla, this also removes any internet trolls from the group.

- FAQs guides
- Help for ALL Tesla related questions

You can find the VIN at the following locations:
- Touch the Tesla “T” at the top center of the touchscreen. The VIN displays on the popup window.
- Stamped on a plate located at the top of the dashboard. Can be seen by looking through the windshield.
- Printed on the Statutory Plate, located on the driver’s side door pillar. Can be seen when the driver’s door is open.
- Found on My Tesla on Tesla.com
We understand that some people simply don’t like the idea of Facebook but we’ve tested numerous platforms and actually found Facebook to be superior to them all, so there are three options:
- Sign up with an alias account at Facebook – Just for our group – If you wish to do this please make a note of this on your application to the Facebook group explaining your full real name so we can approve your request alongside your VIN.
- Sign up with a real account and consider using anti-tracking / advert blockers.
- Join one of the other forums, your experience will vary dramatically here compared to our Facebook discussion group (where we see 2,500 posts / 45,000 comments a month) but if you really won’t sign up to Facebook these are OK alternatives but please note these are not run by us: TMC – United Kingdom (2-5 posts a week) or Tesla Forums – United Kingdom (~1 post every 2-3 months).
