I believe that you will need to insure it first check out the DVLA advice in this link;

By aware that the DVLA is populated with the ultimate 'jobs worths' and make sure you have all the documents requested.

"Previously used vehicle
As part of the registration process DVLA must be sure that an imported used vehicle, thatís less than ten years old meets the required standards."

Interesting statement on the DVLA site, so does that mean you can bring a 12 year old Ypsilon, Kappa,Lybra, in without having to get approval? I tried to find anything on the site relevant to bringing older vehicles but couldn't find anything, I'm sure when I imported my Elefantino Rosso in 1999 the book I received from DVLA mentioned this?

Richard,

You may need to get an official stamp from the club with proof that the vehicle is what you say it is with the chassis and engine numbers. If this is required then you will need to contact Barbara Longland the club secretary.

This is free to members.

This applys to 'new' imports to the country, not sure if it will be required for a previously registered English car?

Regards

Simon

If your car has previously been registered in the UK and you have proof in the form of the old V5 getting it re-registered will not be a problem. I would check first to see if it has been de-registered (You can do this on the Dvla web site, look for vehicle enquiry) If it hasn't all you need to do is send off the V5 with your details filled in. If it has been de-registered you will have to go to your local Dvla office and fill out the necessary forms, BUT, do not bother doing this until you have the car MOT'd and insured, as they will not do it until it is ready for the road.

should be no problem if it was previously already registered in the uk.
just treat it like you were going to tax a vehicle that has been on sorn for a while,you will need insurance,mot ,any vehicle v5 form you might have or fill out the relevant dvla replacement form,and money to tax it.
There should be no fee, I re-imported my integrale back from the isle of man about 3 years ago, just took the above with any other documents i had,went down to the local dvla office,waited about an hour then handed the lot over at the counter told them what i wanted .They then asked if i wanted it back on the original uk plates it had been on and that was it,walked out with a new tax disc and the new v5 came in the post about a week later.
