For my 1974 RD350 USA import.
Fantastic service from Paul, he sent my dating certificate back by return. Have today sent off the V55/5 by Special Delivery with cheque, NOVA, letter about original reg docs, and dating cert. enclosed copy of driving licence. Fingers crossed I will get my V5.
This bike was a DK one from 2012, so I never had a NOVA, but managed to get one from the Customs Office at Dover last September. I hope this will be the last bit of paperwork!...…………...

That's brilliant Bikerchris.

Wonder how big a percentage of their work the NOVA applications for old imports and barn-finds is. When the system was set up I bet they hardly even considered they would be a catchment-group but it seems to be pretty common.

Well if you're on this site it does and there are lots of other classic bike groups
CS3B, AS3, RD125, RD250C, Honda SS50ZK1.

I'm a bit confused about question 46 on the V55/5 form. Original date of registration. On my title I have year of bike 1973, Issue of the title 04/05/02. Am I missing something?

New V55/5 forms from DVLA are now downloadable and the old type are no longer acceptable for applications... Follow the link and just print the new type yourself...
