Can anybody tell me the recent process currently for taking a van into the north? Friend buying southern reg Van and wants to take it North, he has heard that the process for cars can be problematic unless original reg document from country of manufacture is present, this doesn't sound right to me? Wondering if the eprocess is more straightforward for MH. It is a 1995 6 berth factory built European van.

Hope you find the answer, I have been asking the same question for a long time now and never received a straight answer. When we used to import cars into NI from GB we had to have the full registration document.

ally I think that for a van older than 2012 that a cert of conformity doc is required by DVLA with a 50 point checklist! Now that this is all done through WAles then I can images in significant delay in the registration process. A fair bit of the detail for this would only be available from the manufacturer. I presume if its a factory made van then the manufacture should be able to help if the cert was not with the van when purchased. If I find anymore I will post

After a bit of research and someone helping me out out, this is how it goes..

COC needed on vans up to 10 years old

Contact N.O.V.A, Customs Dover

MOT Vehicle on it's Southern Plates - Vehicle is MOT'd on its chassis number

Send MOT, Insurance and form V55/5 along with a copy of your driving licence to:

NI Team
DVlA
Swansea
SA99 1ZZ

The fee is £55 plus road tax as the vehicle must be taxed
