VIN And Age Related
So the DVLA sent me a VIN etc which is on my car.
I have the doner car and log book where I have used many parts, engine, transmission, Diff, Uprights etc.
Can I apply for an age related registration one IVA complete?
What form do I use to apply for the reg with the new DVLA VIN etc?
You should be able to yes,
I can't remember the process now. The IVA man should know, or you can try ringing the DVLA.
Removing all the VIN plates is a bit of a double edged sword. You want to keep the registration document live with the car sorned but if it goes to a scrapyard they may signal the DVLA that the car with that VIN number has been scrapped and then you have issues at registration. With my first kit build I stripped an MX5, removed all Vin numbers and scrapped the shel and got an age related plate. With the next, a Focus ST170, did the same and the scrapyard were very iffy about taking the shell as they thought it may be a stolen stripped car. Took a while but got it sorted, no age related with that one as you can't use enough bits from it to qualify.
If you search on this forum there is a very good guide, by Stot I think, which details all the forms required and how to fill them in. Be aware that the things needed for IVA are different than they require for registration. I can't remember the forms numbers but they were something like V55/5 and V4

yeah things have changed a bit in the last 10 years to try and combat scrap theaft.
So scrapping a car without a V5 being handed over is ODD now to the metal merchants.
Probably requires a decent conversation with the office manager, statements on record and photographic evidence. This is all to protect them from prosecution.
The merchants should be receptive though as they are recyclers and car lovers at heart so should understand the situation that a drive train is being saved.
