Importing an S1 - obtaining a UK registration number

PostPost by: dunclentdr » Fri Jul 17, 2015 8:35 am

I am lucky enough to have bought a very early S1 from a fellow forum member, not seen it yet but by all accounts (including records of the careful restoration on the forum) it should be wonderful.

During the 7- days it will spend getting back to the UK (photos show it awaiting shipping) I want to start the process of obtaining a suitable ('A' plate) UK registration number.

I have a certificate of provenance from Andy Graham and a copy of the Australian registration document.

Can anyone share experience of obtaining a new but age related registration for a 're-imported' car and advice on how best to handle the process with the DVLA?

Thanks

David

Looks great.

The DVLA apparently do an import pack, give them a ring.

Oh is that Mazalot's car? It looks superb! I've imported two RHD Elans from the US and would be happy to share my experiences. PM me and I'll send you my phone number or just send me yours. Have you a shipping company in mind?

Thanks - yes it was helpful (have been away!) and just sent off for a pack from DVLA.
