Hi evveryone,

I imported my 2990 TVR S2 from the UK last year. I have a few things to finish off before registering it in Belgium.
I obtained the pink document from the custom. I have the cars' Uk registration documents and the last MOT which expired lat month, but I haven't got the COC. Any advice or suggestion on the procedure to register it in Belgium would be very welcome.
Best regards,

Geoffrey
As per my above post;

quote

- get a 'gelijkvormigheidsattest' from the importer (currently still with MF Cars) and a 'type' plate, with PVG n° (proces verbaal van goedkeuring)

- get Insurance

- go to customs with registry documents of the car ex country of origin (differs between countries, despite EU.....)

- go for MOT/'keuring' (with original licence plates)

- request for/get belgian license plates

Hi Frank,

Thank you for your message.
I have been to the customs with registration documents and obtained the pink Belgian registration papers.

I'm afraid I don't understand this:
"get a 'gelijkvormigheidsattest' from the importer (currently still with MF Cars) and a 'type' plate, with PVG n° (proces verbaal van goedkeuring)"
Could you please explain what it means?

As I want to register my TVR as an "oldtimer", I've been told that I just need to go to the customs to get the pink Belgian registration paper and then take the car to the MOT station. Is this correct?

Many thanks for your help.

Best regards,

Geoffrey

Hi Geoffrey,

If you got her custom cleared already, you want your Insurance to endorse the form, by means of a stamp.

Gelijkvormigheids attest would translate into 'Certificate of conformity' (don't be tempted to confuse with the TVR issued one, they will NOT be accepted !)and comprises of a piece of paper and an alu plate to be put on the car (in the engine bay for instance) from MF cars, as they are still the official importer.....

After that, make an appointment for MOT, with the original plates on the car and after that request for belgian plates (for instance thru your insurance broker)

The fact you want it to be on the 'oldtimer' regime does not change anything to the above (bar the MOT being less stringent)

Hi Frank,

My TVR already has the original TVR alu plate on the body in the engine bay. Isn't that sufficient?

Many thanks,
Geoffrey

No its not, the 'belgian' plate denoted the PVG number, which is what you need for MOT

Are you sure that the PVG nummer is applicable in the Wallonia part of Belgium or just in Flanders?

At a guess, yes, it will obviously will be called something in french, but the PVG numbering is basically classifying all cars, can't see a reason why they wouldn't need it in Wallonia

Well a bit of progress today Pascal took the Tuscan to the control in Deerlijk as I am working away, even spotted it on the web cam:-



Bit of a problem with the Lambda reading, but that is in hand,the papers are on their way to Brussels now so the next wait begins for the registration which is about four weeks hopefully. Then it's back to the control for the normal inspection.

Hi Nick,

I saw your Tuscan S today at Pascal's garage, A real beauty.
The taxes (the tax to put it on the road and yearly raod tax) will cost you an arm and a leg.
Welcome to Belgium.

Best regards,

Geoffrey

Hi Geoffrey thanks for the comment on the car, it's the best TVR I have ever owned. Yes the 'TAX' that is not going to be cheap we are looking at 2K Euro per year and the BIV well I hope they use the CO2 figure they have used on other Speed 6 models or I will be selling some body parts to pay for it.

Yes, and rumour has it the 'oldtimer' regime will go from 25 to 30 years..........

particularly annoying on the Griff, 23 years old........so within some time they will say, " Ah, yes, as of next tuesday you will pay 2k for the next five years in roadtax".....

This country does not appreciate a nice to look at proper sportscar,.....they rather all drive a Euro-box, preferably in some shade of grey, diesel of course so they can get dicked about by a bunch of germans...

Fl*pping pathetic !

(ok, rant over, as you were !)

I was informed yesterday that this would commence on the 1st January 2016 in Wallonia, but it is still un-known in the West Flanders.

Have the 'Green' paper from the control as the high lambda was 1.034 (1.03 limit) now 1.017 with all exhaust joints re-sealed! Although they did try and add a couple of other i.e. no high level break light (it's been there for the last 9 years) & speedometer not in KPH on dial, although digital KPH very clear on wavy dash Tuscan and previously accepted, chief of the control finally passed it off!

Glad you got that sorted !

The story, however does show the duality in the 'inspection' ........

Hope to see you soon out and about !

Hi Nick,

The brake problem has been resolved on the TVR and it went through the Belgian MOT. I'm waiting for the registration papers from Brussels.
Have you got any news from Brussels?

Best regards,

Geoffrey
