IVA Paperwork

Hello All

I have so many questions with registering my kit car for road use some help would be appreciated

The project started some 11 years ago with my son wanting a bonding project for us, so being a fabricator/ welder with my own business agreed and obtained plans from GTS Tuning for building the chassis, wishbones etc. on completion of the chassis and other parts I found out GTS had ceased trading! So have continued making all the parts myself and all main parts from a single donor car. Now it's finished I am a bit lost on what to do next

1) What do I call the car? The chassis plans are for a GTS W7DE. The remainder is a mix of Haynes Manual and self-invention.

2) On form IVA4 what is the identification number, what is the make and model if built from scratch, do I use the GTS Tuning W7DE chassis designation

3) What other forms will I need apart from IVA 1C and IVA 4?

4) Can I keep the same reg. plate or age related plate or does it have to be a Q plate? Does this affect the emissions test?

If you can help with these questions that would be great.

Thanks in advance
Tinbasher

I think you will need to apply for a VIN number off the DVLA they issue these.
You can name the car what ever you want Tinbasher 7 for example
You can not keep the actual donor reg number, if you have used parts off a donor vehicle and have the donor V5 you can apply for an age related plate.
If you do not have donor V5 then you will need to apply for a Q plate.



Example:

1a application type tick "statutory".
1b enter; your details.
2a enter; your nearest test centre.
3a (ii) enter; MEV (VIN) chassis number.
3b enter; driverís side under bonnet.
3c tick box A and include an amateur declaration form IVA 4 and copy of evidence of build e.g photo's and invoices.
4a enter; MEV Exocet.
4b enter; date the kit was completed.
4c tick; NO.
4d tick; NO.
4e tick; NO.
4f enter; sports car.
4g enter; engine number on your V5
4h enter; On engine block, they might find it.
4j tick; manual or auto.
4k enter; 2.
4m enter; as appropriate.
4n tick; non turbo unless you have fitted one.
4p tick; NO. Unless you have retained ABS.
4q NA
4r tick; petrol.
4s enter; 1600 or 1800cc.
4t enter; 4, in line.
4u enter; 115 BHP @ 6500 rpm. Or 132 BHP if 1.8 engine.
4v enter; 110 mph.
4w (i) axle 1 500 axle 2 500 gross 1000 train NA
4x tick; NO.
Go to part 9.
And don't forget to include copy V5, build pics, amateur built declaration form IVA 4

For and age related plate, you will need to show the receipt for the donor and other major parts, otherwise they will give you a Q plate just like they did to me seeing as the receipt for the donor car was lost during two sales of the kit over 16 years.

IVA Paperwork

Thanks guys

Thatís really helpful, Iíve got the V5 in my name and the VIN Plate but no receipt as the car was given to me
Itís an early 92 Sierra EFI converted to run on a Weber twin choke hence not sure about emissions on a Q or age related
Plate I donít want to shoot my self in the foot

Iíve got as far as applying for a VIN. This was very straightforward but bear in mind that The DVLA has been ravaged by COVID and they are presently on a 4-day strike regarding poor COVID security at tbeir offices. In other words, they might have a backlog.

E-Mail: dvlavin@dvla.gsi.gov.uk


Hereís mine to amend...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Good Day,

I would like to apply for a VIN/chassis number for a kit car that I have built.

The address of where the car was built is,

<<Address Here>>

My name as builder and owner of the vehicle is,
<<Your name>>

The type of car is called an,
<<Make & Model>>

The car has a <<XX>>cc <<Engine Make>> engine with engine number,
<<Engine Number>>.

Please contact me as required by email at this address, by post to the address above or by phone on <<Mobile No.>>.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Check the position where the VIN needs to to marked. Check this: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/individual-vehicle-approval-iva-for-cars-help-to-get-a-pass/individual-vehicle-approval-iva-for-cars-help-t o-get-a-pass

at the IVA they don't care what kind of reg you might or might not get in the end
(that would be expecting VOSA and the DVLA to actually talk to each other )

So for the IVA only your emissions is based on the engine age - as long as you can prove it otherwise they'll test it like a brand new car (some testers seem to accept the ford engine age table in the burton power catalogue )
so for a 1992 engine you should easily be in the non-CAT limits (just follow the flow charts in the IVA manual)



when you register it the emissions limits from the IVA should be printed on the new V5c (so you can use this with awkward MOT testers in future)


but if you get a Q plate the MOT emissions are treated as pre-75 (visual smoke only)

here's the bit in the MOT manual you need:

one point,
do not tell dvla that you have scrapped the doner car, until the rest of the paperwork is sorted.

if physically scrapping the old bodyshell, get a receipt without it saying 'scrap car' and keep the vin plates from it

EDIT
just re-read your post looks like you have done that right already ;-)

I've been trying to find how to request a VIN number for a little while now! (Why can't they make it easy!!!?)

Do I just send a request email to the email address you've posted here?





I will either die working on a car or crashing at high speed!

Thanks!
Just sent them an email, hopefully I get a VIN soon. Although it is the DVLA so nothing happens fast!
