International Car Shipping: Permanent Export:
If you are taking your vehicle out of Great Britain permanently you must notify DVLA. If you have a Registration Document (V5) you can do this by completing section C to show the intended date of export. The V5 should then be returned to DVLA or to a DVLA Local Office. In its place you will receive a Certificate of Permanent Export (V561) as confirmation of your vehicle's registration. If you have a Registration Certificate (V5C) then you must notify export on the purple section (V5C/4).

Must do:

You must take your Registration Certificate with you as you may have to hand it over to the relevant authority when the vehicle is registered abroad. Further information on this subject, including advice on taking a vehicle to Northern Ireland, can be found in leaflet V526 'Taking your vehicle out of the country'.

International Car Shipping: Temporary Exports:

If you are taking your vehicle out of the country for less than 12 months you must make sure you take your Registration Document (V5) / Certificate (V5C) with you. If you do not have one, you should apply to a DVLA Local Office on form V62. The Registration Certificate may take up to 14 days to arrive.

You should make sure that you meet any international and national conditions for licensing and taxation.

International Car Shipping: Check your vehicle history:

Without an Export Certificate, UK customs may decide to check on any outstanding finance owed, especially if it is a new or high value vehicle. In the event that outstanding finance is due, you may still be able to ship you vehicle providing you can get written approval from the credit or loan company.

International Car Shipping: Duty and Taxes:

We can ship your vehicle anywhere! However please bear in mind that you may be liable to pay import duties once your vehicle has arrived at the destination port. Whilst YFT Logistics can arrange for the necessary import clearance documentation. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fully conversant with import regulations and requirements.

YFT guided me through every step. I went over and brought vehicle and drove it to the port and found out the port was shut and my flight was the next day! At a drop of a hat they organised alternate solution.
