Import laws in UK.

It is important that the vehicle that is being imported meets all of the eligibility criteria which have been laid down in the Road Vehicle Regulations 1986 and the Road Vehicle Lighting Regulations 1989. Additionally, it is of importance that the vehicle meets the requisite standards of safety and emission control. To know more about the eligibility criterion of the vehicles, browse Individual Vehicle Approval scheme. It will give you the details about taxes and duties which have to be cleared before the imported vehicle is allowed to legally drive on the roads.

Left hand driven vehicles.

However, only right hand drive vehicles are allowed, though you need special permission to import left hand driven vehicle. It is essential to pay taxes on any imported vehicle that is over six months old and has 3, 750 miles on the odometer. You are only allowed to register the vehicle if you are importing the vehicle permanently. Additionally, you need to get the headlamp adapters installed on these vehicles before you are allowed to drive it. You might need special permission, if you are bringing in a car that is older than 10 years. All permanently imported vehicles need to have the local insurance before they can be driven so you might want to contact A1 Auto Transport service.

Tax exemptions.

We know that there are many eligibility criterions that if you meet, you are allowed to import the vehicle without paying any taxes. Check if your car is eligible under the exemptions. Some of the conditions include:

  • Permanently moving to United Kingdom.
  • Again importing a vehicle back to UK that was exported before.
  • If the vehicle is being imported temporarily i.e. less than 6 months.

In case you do not quality under these conditions, you are liable to pay VAT and all the taxes to import the vehicle. HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) have to be informed about the import of the vehicle and you are required to fill in the “Notification of Vehicle Arrivals” and submit it. Then you are allowed to pay the VAT on the car.

Best Car Shipping Company Leeds

Documentation for the import.

  • Proof of ownership- passport, driving license.
  • Title deed.
  • Emission and safety certificates.
  • Insurance certificate.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Registration certificate and documents.

We will help you get through the processes so that your vehicle gets the clearances, for faster delivery. Container shipping and Roll-on/Roll-Off is the two methods that are used to ship the vehicle from USA to UK. If you are on a budget, and only need to ship your vehicle, then RORO works best. The vehicle is driven on, secured on the deck and at the Port of Bristol; it is driven off the ship. If you need to relocate and want to move your household goods, along with the vehicle, then container shipping works best.

Contact the Embassy of United Kingdom in USA to get the extra details on the current laws and regulations on imported vehicles.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
