I know this is an old thread, but has anyone had any luck recently with it?
Also is it recognised by the DVLA?

I'm not sure it has been tried with DVLA, but they normally insist on a physical inspection backed up by a letter from the club, unless you have a 'libretto' confirming the car was on the road/taxed in an EU state.

I made use of this service so as to confirm the build date of the Dedra integrale I purchased from Chris Hopkins.
Its not quick, thats for sure. I had to give them a nudge to "get on with it!".
As to its accuracy, the build date would seem to make sense (December 1994), but the original sale date indicated to me is nonsense. It states May 1995, but I have likely proof (dealer paperwork) that is was January 1994. My comments/enquiries to clarify this have been ignored. In my opinion this is not acceptable. If a manufacturer offers this service it should be completely accurate, irrespective of the vehicle in question.
Consequently I cannot recommend this service, given my experience.

Just to be clear, there are 2 services offered by FCA

a) sub100eu certificate repeating production date and other production details based on "a" chassis number you gave FCA. I know this is not acceptable to the French authorities and they require something like the our club provides from their classic car association FFVE. I dont think this certificate is acceptable to DVLA.

b) >1000eu certification of your car by FCA personel verifying it and providing a dossier of their findings. I suspect this may be acceptable to DVLA but you would lose your dossier to them ....

So the club verification is the better route IMHO.
