How do I register and tax my foreign vehicle in the UK?


Before telling DVLA that you have brought
a vehicle into the UK you need to show it meets environmental and safety regulations
or has an exemption. You usually also need to pay VAT to HMRC. Once you have done this, you’ll need to
register your vehicle with DVLA. To do this you will need to fill in all the
forms in our ‘Import pack’ and include some of your documentation: vehicle registration certificate, NOVA confirmation
(if applicable), approval certificate / MOT certificate (if applicable), cheque or postal
order for £55 for first registration fee and the correct vehicle tax rate You will also need to provide evidence of
your identity and address. To confirm your name, you’ll need to provide
one original ID document: current DVLA driving licence, UK or EU passport,
birth certificate, marriage certificate, decree nisi or decree absolute To confirm your address, you’ll need to
provide one original document: utility bill issued in the last 3 months,
council tax bill for the current year, bank statement issued in the last 3 months, medical
card Remember – Your vehicle may need to be inspected
before it can be registered! We will then process your application and
if approved, we’ll: give your vehicle a new UK registration number,
send you a vehicle registration certificate For further information visit GOV.UK

  7. It's just as well that UK people are easily brainwashed, why would any dumbass spend thousands of pounds on a car and then sign it over to a private corporation, then only be the 'Registered Keeper' Acts and statutes are NOT laws, they are only rules and regulations that are given the force of law by consent of the governed. Do not consent and do not register your car with these scam artists, you have a right to travel in your own car.

  8. Hi
    Thanks for the info. Do I need to insure car as well? I don’t want to drive car but need registration and will sale it. You didn’t mention insurance document required for registration? Look to your reply,
    Regards.
