Topic: How effective are DVLA currently at issuing no. plates to old imports?

Had a run in or three trying to get my import 1966 Suzuki registered a few years ago, took nearly 6 months in total.

Have got my eye on another yank import Suzi to do LDT's on and will need to go through the same 'join owners club, get letter
of manufacture, submit forms, wait, resubmit forms etc' process again.

Have they streamlined the process , what are peoples experiences?
Thanks

Same procedure, just get it right first time...my last one was my MG V35 last year, took about two weeks once I had all the correct info, I am currently doing my latest one but it`s an irish import so it will be easier, just need the mot.

if it`s not broke keep fixing it until it is....

Re: How effective are DVLA currently at issuing no. plates to old imports?

Ironically, I thought I had done it right first time, last time. DVLA wouldn't accept the dating letter from Suzuki OC. They were vague about why they wouldn't accept it, which was most unhelpful. They then referred it to the tax dept so I had them to deal with also. It all ended up ok in the end though, didn't cost me money, only time and the uncertainty of whether I'd ever get a V5.
Went on to use the Suzi on the Beamish trial, but that's another story
