You need to register any vehicle that you’re importing into the UK permanently.
You can get a vehicle import pack from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to register an imported vehicle.
How to register
You’ll need to send the original foreign registration certificate to show when the vehicle was manufactured (you won’t get this back).
You may be able to prove the date another way if you don’t have this, eg with a letter from the manufacturer or a vehicle enthusiast club.
You’ll also need to provide:
- proof of Mutual Recognition or type approval or an exemption from it
- form V267 if the vehicle is new
- evidence showing the date the vehicle was collected, eg the invoice from the supplier
Send original documents, not photocopies or faxed copies.
DVLA may ask to see the vehicle to check its identity.
