Importing Vehicle from BFG to UK

#1
Having read the various posts regarding the importation of vehicles from BFG to the UK, and looked at the available info on the DVLA website I am quite clear on the process for tax free cars.

What I cannot find out is whether I can tip up at the DVLA to register my tax free car and receive the V5 same day even though i am selling it and buying a used car in the UK.

The DVLA website says that it can take upto 6 weeks but then i know of people who have bought another tax free car and sorted the process in one day.

Grateful for any guidance...

Thanks :)

If I recall correctly, there are only a few places that will give you a reg and docs on the day. Your V5 will still take the same amount of time, but you will get a reg no and the requisite paperwork to move the car on.

I know you used to be able to do it at Maidstone and I think Sidcup too.

Thanks for that... does that meant I should have little problem coming back to the UK, 're-registering' the vehicle in the UK (i know i retain the previous UK plates), then handing it over to a dealer?

Thanks :)
