no idea if it will help, but have you tried searching/asking on expatforum.com ??
To tax the car online you will need to have the insurance and the MOT in place first as the DVLA check both the insurance and MOT data bases before you can buy the tax either online or if you buy via the postoffice you need to show them prior to purchase..Now, the car has been without ah MOT for a few years (minimum 2) so I'm not sure if it's possible to even insure the car, drive it through France and as soon as I enter the country get an MOT passed. I believe oyu can tax cars online and get the disc sent home, right? Not sure if on 'the computer system' the MGF will be on 'most wanted police list' and if I get pulled over, car confiscated and crushed since it has been untaxed and unMOT'd for a few years.
Bummer...To tax the car online you will need to have the insurance and the MOT in place first as the DVLA check both the insurance and MOT data bases before you can buy the tax either online or if you buy via the postoffice you need to show them prior to purchase..
If the car is driven on UK roads without insurance, MOT or tax and you get stopped, the police now have the right to crush the car as you say and they are checking all the above on the same data bases that are used to buy your tax online.
Those are my thoughts... if it's an EU law, there should be something towards that...Surely as the car is already registered in an EU country then all you are doing is moving it's location within the EU?
It's not as if it is a car foreign to the EU, like from Japan or USA. It's built to EU laws already but from a few years ago when they were different laws.
I don't think it's cost effective. It would be cheaper to get a single flight to UK and buy a later MGF or TF.what about putting it in a container and having it shipped to the uk
