Can I drive my car on UK roads

without a number plate?


There are special concessions during the Importation process which allows you to do so at specific times. The Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions' document "How to Import a Vehicle into Great Britain" states:


    "Section 3

    Registration and Licensing Procedures

    A vehicle imported into GB for use on the public road must be licensed and registered immediately after arrival. The vehicle must be in this country and available for inspection before you make the application. After arrival the only circumstances in which you can drive the vehicle before completing these formalities are from the port of entry to your home address/first destination, to and from a pre-arranged SVA/MoT test and to and from a garage for remedial work following failure to pass the tests. Thereafter the vehicle must be kept off road until the licensing and registration formalities have been completed."
