For vehicles that are under ten years old, on arrival in the UK, your vehicle will need to comply to UK type approval. We can either do this with a process called mutual recognition or through IVA testing. For the vehicles over 10 years old, they will need to pass an MOT test, checking components of the vehicle for safety and roadworthiness.
Every car is different and every manufacturer has different support standards for assisting their clients through the import process, so please enquire so we can discuss the optimum speed and cost option for your individual circumstances.
We manage the whole process on your behalf, whether that is dealing with the homologation team of your vehicle’s manufacturer or the Department for Transport, so you can relax in the knowledge that you will be legally registered with the DVLA in the shortest time possible.
Left hand drive cars from Spain will require some modifications, including those to the headlight pattern to avoid glare for oncoming traffic, the speedo to display the miles per hour reading and the rear fog light if it is not already universally compliant.
We have built an extensive catalogue of the makes and models of vehicle we have imported so can give you a quick cost estimate of what your individual car will require.
