Default im confused!

righty then,

this registering thinggy had got my head in a mess... again!

sent a letter to my local (leeds) DVLA office explaining what im doing and asking for a vin number or information to get one. (used the draft letter in the announcements as a template) and got the following reply.

further to your letter dated 13/05/2011, in order for us to issue a DVLA VIN you will need to present your vehicle to us for an inspection and complete the enclosed applications (v55/5 and v267/1) we will contact you for an inspection as soon as we receive your application.

please submit the following documents:

a completed V55
55 registration fee and appropriate vehicle excise duty
identification (information enclosed)
certificate of insurance (can be presented after inspection)
V627/1 (enclosed)
receipts for major components (such as chassis)
V5C registration document for donor vehicle
IVA test certificate (after DVLA VIN issued and inspected)


now this makes no sense to me, im asking for a vin so that i can get a new(ish) built vehicle, finished and tested, i cant register it yet so why are they asking me to stump up 55?

can anyone shed some light on the situation please? it would be greatly appreciated!

Ta Very Much

JakeH

I'd be more interested in how they expect you to insure it beforehand!!

Insuring a pre-registration car is easy, so long as you have a VIN

Have you not got a reciept for the chassis steel?

Normally the things they are asking for happen after the iva test, why are dvla offices so shite?

You need insurance if you want to drive to iva, so they insure on the vin number.

I think someone at Leeds Dvla doesn`t know what they are doing, I got a VIN just by asking for one, I was only half way through building my chassis!
What they are asking you for is the procedure for REGISTERING a car, when it`s built & IVA`D, immediately prior to putting it on the road.

unfortunately not the steel i got was at knock down price as it was some stuff my supplier had left over from a previous job, wasn't full lengths, more bits and bobs with a couple of half lengths

can you drive the car to the IVA this is news to me

I had the same response and forms in the post from Chester DVLA. I have filed them away until after I pass IVA. I think you need the rest of the forms to get the registration after IVA, not before.
