Cool Great work Steve

well done Steve, that is a great set of resources that you have put together there

Definately feel that this one should be a sticky .... It will save hours of research for builders new & old
I am not a complete idiot...........Some of the parts are missing !!

nice bit of info there.

Might be worth mentioning that when i had my iVA the manager said that even though its newly registered car it will still need an MOT yearly as its not NEW new (ie made up of new parts etc! If you know what I mean. It might be worth keeping that in mind, again it could be down to interpretation?

I did a lot of research, did a lot of emails to VOSA & DVLA, the general rule is no mot for 3 years, however DVLA say it is up to the office you register your car in, they have the final say.

Default Update

An update:

Just received back my paperwork* from the Bournemouth DVLA's LVLO. A covering letter states the number is still valid and I can re-open(?) the registration process by contacting the DVLA Swansea with the VIN number they issued me.

I presume they are tidying up their paper work prior to closing the office**.

* Application form for vehicle registration which has the VIN number they issued to me written on it. I hope that the fact that the number has been issued is recorded somewhere within the DLVA Swansea office. Since I have it milled in to the chassis rail, (thanks to AdrianH for the milling), and don't want someone else getting issued with the same number and me having to change.
