Importing your car from Belgium to the United Kingdom

Why choose My Car Import?

We are experts in logistics and can assist with getting your car into the United Kingdom from Belgium safely.

If your car is already in the United Kingdom, we can either remotely register your car, or you can bring it to our premises for the required work to be completed. However, if you require transportation of your car to the United Kingdom, many different transport methods can be used.

Depending on your requirements, the car can be transported inland to a port or transported the entire way on a car transporter. Our car logistics solutions are bespoke to your car and personal requirements. Please get in touch so that we can gain a better understanding.

What is the process of importing your car from Belgium to the United Kingdom?

Cars from Belgium that are under ten years old will need to comply with UK type approval. We can either do this with a process called mutual recognition or through IVA testing.

Every car is different, and every manufacturer has different support standards for assisting clients through the import process. Please enquire with My Car Import so we can discuss the optimum speed and cost options for your circumstances.

We manage the WHOLE process on your behalf. Whether that’s dealing with the homologation team of your car’s manufacturer or the Department for Transport, we do it all!

All you need to do is relax in the knowledge that your car will be legally registered with the DVLA in the shortest time possible.

Left-hand drive cars from Belgium will require some modifications. These include the headlight pattern to avoid glare for oncoming traffic, the speedo to display the miles per hour reading, and the rear fog light if not universally compliant.

My Car Import has built an extensive catalogue of makes and models of cars we’ve imported over our thirty years in business so we’re able to offer a cost estimate from the off!

Cars over 10 years old and classics are type approval exempt but require an MOT test and certain modifications before registration.

Modifications are age-dependent but generally to the headlights and rear fog light.

We IVA test every week on-site, therefore, have the fastest turnaround for registration and UK road compliance.
