If the bike are UK registered then yes but irish DVLA and UK DVLA are not connected in any way.

Sounds Good I am going give it a go on a few of my bikes. Also those links you posted are really handy when you have a few bikes and cant remember when the tax is due. If fact I forget a lot these days. :-\ :'(

I'm not sure this is postrd in the correct section, but if you post up the first five digits of your frame number someone will have a guess

Unfortunately it doesn't work like that, you will only receive the history of the bike UP TO the point you owned the bike and NOT the history AFTER your ownership

I have just checked the DVLA vehicle tax website, AMD887T was last taxed in 2004, so it is probably lurking in the back of someone's garage

v888 form problem
« Reply #23 on: November 04, 2017, 10:20:39 AM »
Hi all I filled out the v888 form ticked option A and said I need the info for historical reasons.

 but I got a letter back saying that the reason you provided for wanting the names and addresses of previous keepers of your vehicle does not meet the reasonable cause provision that allows DVLA to release this information and they returned the £5.00 postal order.

Please could someone advise whit I am doing wrong with the v888 form
thank in advance

Hello Joe
I have just joined the forum and completed a V888 for a Golf GTI, which I know is not bike relevant but still the process applies.
Similar to yourself the DVLA returned the form and chequers and said they will only provide historical details if the vehicle has been involved in an accident, legal reasons and not just for provenance of the vehicle.

I'm not sure what is going wrong here, I received the historic details for my 350 a couple of years ago, I wonder if DVLA have tightened up their requirements :(
