Been a while since ive done this but from memory i had to get a dating certificate from an owners club, then have the bike looked over at the local dvla centre who simply checked it was what i said on the application (numbers etc) then had to show valid insurance & have the tax money to hand there & then, think i'd already mot'd the bike on the frame number the v5 & tax was sent out within a couple of weeks

As i said its been a while so check with your local dvla or vosa office to be sure, they were very helpfull in my case (stock grey import) but expect hassle if its not stock cos they wont know what theyre looking at & may ask for an sva

Hi Gix,
not a clue on that one i'm afraid  :( well out of my area of operations so all i can suggest is to contact VOSA & ask them, they have always been very helpful in the past.

Pete, i remember there being something about seat height as part of the check but really cant remember, i did have a full on guide somewhere which i think i originally 'borrowed' off the KTM forum ;)
