I assume you are not asking about the physical removal of the vehicle (i.e. just take it away on a ferry/tunnel, or use shippers) but the DVLA documentation.

Just complete Section 11 of the V5 Registration Certificate and send it (only Section 11) to DVLA. Use Signed for Post as they can get very sh*tty if they loose it and think you didn't send it.

Keep the rest of the V5 - it will be useful if you seek to register the vehicle in another country.

Technically/legally you cannot use the UK registration plate/number on the vehicle after the date you put on Section 11 because the registration ceases. Therefore it should not be used on a public road anywhere where a vehicle must have a Registration.
Buy, hey - you have the vehicle, the V5, all the numbers and specification match... and there is nothing on the first 2 sides to say there should be sides 3 and 4. And, outside the EU, I dont think any State has access to DVLA.

Depends where you're going in the EU, I guess - it's not all the same at all.

Speaking for France, you need to get (1) a certificate of conformity from the French representative of the manufacturer (100 Euros); (2) Pay to register it (500 Euros).

In my case ('84 34L), No.1 proved to be impossible, since Yamaha France thought my bike was a 3AJ and put lots of "must change this" remarks on my conformity document. These were impossible to do (like I have to put a certain Yamaha part number exhaust on the bike, which doesn't fit) and thus it's been impossible to register.

Aha, I thought, there's a classic bike scheme where you don't have to conform to technical regs for vehicles over 25 years old ... so I waited a year until she passed her 25th birthday ... then they changed the rules to make it 30 years old ... so I'm still waiting :-(

French rules, gotta love 'em.

import

I just found out for Sweden, and as I understand it is supposed to be the same in all of the EU, although the paperwork and procedure might differ.

If your particular type of vehicle has been accepted as being roadworthy in one EU member state, other states must accept it for registration.
The thing with the Certificate of Conformity does not exist anymore formally, although seems still to be asked for. However, if you can show the appropriate registration documents from the country the vehicle comes from, this should be considered sufficient proof that the vehicle has been accepted in the EU.

As to taxes, if the vehicle is not 'new', which means it is has been registered in a EU country more than 6 months ago AND it has been driven for more than 6000 km, there are no additional taxes to be paid. Just the fees for the inspection (framenumber against tregistration docs) etc.

Hope this helps.

frogs ...

Yeah, the french. Can be a charming lot, and can be charmingly rude. But the food is good.
Your only recourse is the European court I'm afraid. Or wait 5 years?

Yep, waiting patiently ... (being able to sit out in the gorgeous sunshine for lunch every day for the past month is helping a lot to compensate!)
