UK registration help.
Hi. I have been following the posts on this forum for a while now about foreigners registering in the UK. I have recently contacted the DVLA to work out for certain if an Aussie comming to the UK can buy and register a bike there. I understand the problems with trying this is that i will not have a british address listed on my licence or other documents.
So.. i explained my situation to the DVLA, and they suggested to register with a V62 by saying:
"If you purchase a vehicle you can apply to register the vehicle in your name by completing the V5C registration certificate with the seller at the time of transfer.
Alternatively, you can apply for a Registration Certificate (V5C) by completing a form V62 that is available at the Post Office®, DVLA Local Office or for download from our website listed below. Please send the form direct to DVLA, Swansea SA99 1DD. If you have the green V5/2 or V5C/2 new keepers supplement, please attach this to the V62 and there will be no fee payable. Please be aware that there is a charge of £19 for a V5C registration certificate, unless you are in possession of a V5 registration document/V5C registration certificate or the green V5/2 or V5C/2 "new keeper supplement". "
I had a look at the V62 form and, unlike the V55/4, this form appears to not require proof of address. Can anyone confirm this? Sounds good in theory, but will the 'special checks' that are carried out when lodging this form realise the address that i give is not my official address?
