    Should be no problem as long as you have proof that the import duties have been paid.
    Have a look round on here and you should find all your answers Registering an imported vehicle : Directgov - Motoring

    The form is quite extensive and is geared around newer cars, just fill in the minimum and ignore anything that isn't relevant.

    Yep, I did 2 this week, all you need is to put Historic in tax class, chassis engine number, colour, wheel plan number of seats thats about it. Ignore all the rest. I use Reading VRO very helpfull if you have made any mistakes they point it out and re do the form.

    Good luck Pete

    You need the vehicle MOT'd on the VIN, the customs "V&E385 (or 386) form showing duties all paid up, insurance certificate, US title certificate, completed form V55/5 (just fill in everything you know about the car) and £55. Take it to your local DVLA office and you'll get a lovely free tax disc and number plate authority cert within 72 hours. The registration document arrives about a week to ten days later.
    Hardest part is understanding the counter staffs accents at the DVLA office.

    Some offices also want to inspect the car, the one I used (Nottingham) didn't, but I know that some do which can throw up problems if the car is modified from stock. Also, a lot of VRO's are being closed down so make the most of the local ones while you can.
