I have changed the extension from .zip to .pdf just so I can attach. THIS IS NOT A PDF file, rename it to .zip once you have downloaded it. So when you click on it save rather than open
Save the link to your own PC and rename it with the "Zip" Extension Ie save as "IVA.zip" then you can open it OK

It sounds like the new test will follow a similar format to the SVA where one-off builds are concerned. One point I have noticed whilst researching on the web is that there may be a new form of MOT introduced,the test will take longer and part of its criteria is to compare vehicles to standard (or point of single vehicle approval) and if the car has deviated from approved standard identify if DVLA are aware. This could give rise to a re-test.

This could potentially put an end to people passing their car for example with a pinto engine and then sticking a Hayabusa in the following week (might take a bit longer than a week )

Cheers

I've had all 3 books (off road buggy & lo-cost by champion and haynes roadster book by gibbs - top work) for quite a while and I'll hopefully be starting my build within the next 6 months (just moving from west yorkshrie to york first, as you do). I'm guessing it's a bit early to start speculating exactly how this is going to affect individual builds. What's the consensus so far?

Top forum by the way, no doubt I'll be back every 5 mins with the usual questions when the build is underway.

Cheers, Pt6

Welcome to the forum Paul! thanks for the compliments.

I don't think there'll be huge changes, the requirement for a reverse gear might add to the cost of some bike engined cars (this requirement might not be adopted) but generally it's about european harmonisation, hopefully our cousins on the continent will find things a bit easier, and that has to be a good thing

Cheers

chris

BTW if anyone has that IVA document could they mail it to me? - I can't find it!

The SVA is being replaced by the IVA
To bring us in to line with other euro partners or some thing like that.
