    V55/5 Vehicle Registration form help needed!

    I had the forms come through yesterday to get the Impala registered and 75% of the required information confuses me....

    The forms are biased towards the registration of new or nearly new cars. The accompanying booklet talks about type approval, IVA etc, etc and nowhere are older cars mentioned. There is also a help sheet which guides you on the information to give & where to obtain this information, BUT they all centre around having a type approval/SVA/IVA certificate!

    There are various odd-balls, such as emissions, weights, towing limits, engine speed sound etc, etc none of which exist for a 50 year old American car.

    Do I just leave these blank? There is a statement in the notes that "incomplete forms will not be processed".

    What do I do?

    Thanks

    Leave anything non relevant blank Gary . It's like Tax returns, loads of questions that simply don't apply .

    Let us know how it goes, I dont have any wisdom to offer but will be going through the same thing shortly, does it mention any info you have to get from customs at all?

    Thanks Kev.

    Neil, yes, you need form C&E 386, 388 or 389.

    I've just gone through this again, just fill in the parts that are relevant. The form is confusing but there is a Booklet that I think explains it.

    If you're not too sure of things and you've got time take all the paperwork to the office, just off the M1 at Nottingham. I did that the first time that I did it, they were helpful.

    One tip, take some good photocopys of the Title for the Cars history, they keep the original.

    Rog.
    If some's good, more's better and too much is just enough

    Thanks, given the DVLA's ability to lose anything & everything I've taken two copies of all the paperwork!

    Really Rog? How long have they been doing that? I got the North Carolina title for my coupe returned.

    It's common practice Alan, along with MAC certificates, just to ensure single usage
