DVLA registration

Postby gray3403 » 23 Jun 2020 10:34

I have been trying to get my 1976 Morini Sport registered and had sent all my paperwork in to the VMCC.
I find out now after 3 months that VMCC is going to be re structured and the library closed.
They are going to send me all my paperwork back.
Does anyone know where else I can get a dating certificate or anyone that can process this registration.
Thanks. David Gray.

David,

Lussoveloce should do a dating certificate.

You can do the registration paperwork yourself.

You need NOVA registration and the DVLA form. There is a first registration fee. For you, no Road tax.

I ordered the form online.

As Mike says, go to Lusso Veloce /Old NLM. They have done two for me.

Mike, sorry haven't checked the forum for a couple of days.
I've done the Nova and have done all the paperwork.
It's really just the dating certificate I need.
I had actually thought that the whole presentation had to come from an approved person/ club etc like VMCC.
I take it as you suggest that I can submit all this myself once I have the cert,.
I have the Italian log book which pretty much confirms the date anyway.
Thanks for the name. I will be on to them right away and let you know how I get on.
David.

Hello David,

If you have the log book it is even easier. As the bike is old there are very few boxes to fill on the V55/5 form. Most of them are for type approval, emmisons, weight, lots of commercial vehicle questions. It's £55 first registration fee and you need a cover note for the insurance. The dating certificate has to come from an approved source.

I'll let you know when my application is returned because I forgot to fill in my inside leg measurement, religion, ethnicity etc.

Unfortunately, I have just noticed my short sighted MoT tester has got the frame number slightly wrong. Grr.

I also sent a photo of the frame number.

Mike.

In fact, you may not need a dating certificate if you have the original log book.. just re read the notes. Mine doesn't have a log book, so is a bit harder.

Try here for the form and the guidance is available from the same page.

Yes as Mike suggests it is allowed for you to do the whole application yourself. And NLM are approved by DVLA.
The original log book is a good thing too. You have to send any originals (if you have them) in to DVLA but make sure you keep copies of it. DVLA denied having received my application with German log book and I foolishly didn't ask for registered post when I sent it in.
So I applied again with a covering letter telling them what had happened. Within a fortnight I had a V5c. Only thing is, they had used my original application with original German papers (the ones they never received) and the cheque I sent with that. Then a week later I got another V5c. Some months after that they got in touch complaining my cheque had bounced (I cancelled it when they 'didn't' receive it) In the end I only had to pay the road tax and they 'forgot' about the registration fee.
If you get desperate and have to ring them (I did) it's like calling Acorn Antiques. The senior staff member put me on hold while she 'checked the system'. As she just put the phone down on her desk I could hear every word of the conversation with her colleague.
From that call I gather a lot of paperwork falls off the desk or down the back of the filing cabinet, so even though most of DVLA is very computerised and properly streamlined, not every department is. This took place only 18 months ago.
My mates Kanguro application sailed through! I think he sent chocolate biscuits with his paperwork.
