Registering an imported vehicle in a foreign country always comes with its challenges. Scotland, as well as other countries in the UK, are fairly straightforward in the way they approach the process, but it can still be challenging to an outside.

On this page, youโ€™ll find the resources needed to understand the process of registering a vehicle, what documents are required, the vehicle inspection test (MOT), and helpful links that offer more information on the topics covered here.

Required Documents For Scottish Vehicle Registration

Any vehicle registered in Scotland (on a permanent basis) must have the following documents presented at the time of registration:

  • Valid passport
  • Driverโ€™s license (copy acceptable)
  • Original purchase invoice
  • Proof of residency

Vehicle Inspection, Driving In Scotland, & Registration Resources

Driving In Scotland

There are a few key differences between driving in Scotland and driving in the U.S. For one, vehicles drive on the left side of the road as opposed to the right. As you might expect, steering wheels are on the opposite side of the vehicle as well. Roundabouts are also fairly common in Scotland so itโ€™s good to be familiar with right of way rules.

Another difference is that diesel fuel is more widely used so you should be careful that youโ€™re using the proper type of fuel, especially with an imported vehicle.

Ministry of Transport (Vehicle Inspection)

The roadworthiness test in the Scotland (and throughout the UK) is referred to as the โ€œMOTโ€ after the Ministry of Transport, which issues the test. The inspection covers basic parts of the vehicle which need to be in good working order for the safety and emissions standards. It includes the following components:

  • Body
  • Seat belts
  • Exhaust system
  • Brakes, tires, & wheels
  • Headlights and turn indicators
  • Windshield & wipers
  • Suspension
  • Steering wheel & column
