Default Vin Number Help

Someone please help me ,

I'm trying to get hold of DVLA so I can get a VIN number.
I've tried ringing them, but just get left on hold,
I can't find a current address to write to them and I can't get anywhere online either.
And my local office is a 5+ hours round trip away

Any info would be of help.

Terry

I have attached the letter I sent March/April this year, got the vin in about 2/3 weeks. I have obviously #'ed out my details.

Thanks guy,
The phone number that Ianr supplied got me through to a guy at DVLA K & R department and they told me to email them with my info, which I've done. so just waiting to hear back from them.

Hi Dave,
It might be worth while send your letter to voucht, so he can add it to Book amendments and Extras

Sorry if this is a daft question but at what point should I be applying for a VIN?
I have my chassis pretty much all tack welded together

Mines rolling (kind of) but I sent my letter off before I even received my steel. I wanted to incorprate mine into a number of places on my chassis and I though it would be far easier to do it while I was building it rather than once it's finished. I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong but I can't see the VIN Number ever becoming invalid.

get it as early as possible so that you have clear access to all the required tubes where you are going to put it
I talk from experience @~#' it was quite frustrating doing it after the sides were on , engine in etc
