Dating certificate for lambretta
Lambretta GP Manx 69 replica. Owner s: Me and Sue have been to the Isle of Man to watch the TT races over the last few years so it seemed a good idea to combine the racing scooter theme of the s scooter week events on the island. The John Ronald interveiw in June included the fact that three DLs had been shipped over for Arthur Francis team S Equipe before they had gone on general sale to the public and finished in the first three places. When the dating certificate came back as a 69 model the idea of the John Ronald bike was born. Built over a period of 9 months ready for the Chucks retro Isle of Man rally in May

We would love for you to join us and the evergrowing number of Lambro enthusiasts and owners around the world. Be the first to hear about new Lambros, parts and services available as well as support and information to help you on your Lambro journey. In the section we aim to answer a lot of the frequently asked questions about getting your Lambro on the road. Some of the below is also relevant for all imported used historic vehicles eg Scooters and other historic three-wheelers such as Piaggio Apes.
This information is based on our experience and research and designed to help explain about these topics. Lambretta three-wheelers and Lambros are classed as a tricycle for the purposes of licensing, Mot, insurance and registration. There is no legal requirement to pass your CBT or your full bike test. You may find if you have a full bike license that you insurance is cheaper though! You will see '79 tri ' under category A on the back of your photocard license.
The CBT must be taken on a two wheel vehicle unless you are physically disabled. It has been introduced to ensure that people liable to pay VAT on their imports do so. The most important thing with NOVA is not to panic! There are three scenarios you may find yourselves in:. HMRC require you to register your import through the scheme within 14 days. For either method, you will be required to input your details, whether you are importing as an individual or company, the person you purchased the vehicle from, whether you and they are VAT registered and the vehicle details and price.
If you are buying from a private individual, get a receipt as it saves explaining to HMRC why you dont have one. Be honest and fill in everything you can. If you are struggling, it may be easier to follow the guidelines in Option 2 or 3. If you need any advice, please do call HMRC and ask their advice as they are very helpful. If you are a VAT registered business, you should speak with your accountant. This advice is designed for individuals and non-VAT registered businesses.
For example, you bought a Lambro to the UK a few years ago, have been busy restoring your new vehicle and now you find out you cannot register the vehicle without having completed NOVA. In this instance it is best to request a paper NOVA form. Fill in the details of the vehicle, your details and supplier details and send a covering note explaining that you imported the vehicle a number of years ago and have just found out it needs to be NOVA'd.
To date we have not heard of anyone receiving one but technically you could be issued one. It is hugely important to get the NOVA done as soon as possible. You purchased a vehicle, know its an import but you have no idea when it came to the UK, who imported it or who sold it in Italy. This is the most common situation we come across. We have spoken with HMRC regarding this situation and the advice is to fill in as many details as possible on a paper NOVA form and send a covering letter explaining everything you know, for example who you purchased it from in the UK, any history you know, which country it was manufactured eg Italy.
Include your phone number in the letter and ask them to call you if they need any further information. Lambretta three-wheelers and Lambros require Class 3 MOTs as they fall into the '3-wheeled vehicles up to kg unladen weight ' category. You can find your local Class 3 MOT station here: For example, suspension, tyres, lights including indicators, number plate light, sidelights etc , horn and brakes.
There are many 'creative' options for this but we have found that drilling a small hole for a washer nozzle in cab just in front of the screen and a washer bag with switch is the tidiest and most inkeeping method of installing a washer. If you are unsure about the requirements for an MOT, the best place to start is the MOT station you wish to use for the test. They will be able to talk you through what will be required.
This is another area that seems to worry the owner's across the UK. The process of registering your Lambro has not changed very much. There are three changes to be aware of; NOVA which is detailed above, the closure of the local DVLA offices and new requirements for dating certificates. Once HMRC confirm it has, you are all clear for registration. Previously the DVLA may have required you to attend a vehicle inspection at your local office.
As far as we know you will not be required to take your vehicle to Swansea! From our registering experience, the time taken to process the registration has not changed and in many cases is now quicker than previously. Dating Certificates - the required wording on the dating certificates has now changed. Dating authorities are now required to inspect your frame and if applicable engine number.
This may be done through a photograph and frame rubbing or they may wish to see your vehicle. If you have a dating certificate issued before January , it is worth contacting the organisation who issued the certificate to ask them whether it complies with the new requirements. The form is fairly generic as it covers first registration of all used vehicles so some of the boxes are not applicable.
Our advice is to send a covering note with the form which has your contact phone number on and ask the DVLA to call you if there is anything missing that they require. Sometimes they are rejected and sent back but if this happens they should provide you with details of why. Insurance - you need a valid insurance policy on the vehicle to register it. You can insure a vehicle on chassis number for a short period of time, usually 14 days so once the insurance policy is live, send the form with the certificate straight away.
It is wise to ask the insurer to send you the certificate by email. A registration plate will not be issued if your policy has expired by the time they process it. It is not required to register but ensures that it is made clear that the vehicle does not need one. Posting the form - its expensive but worth sending the form by Special Delivery. It saves it going missing and having to reapply. The DVLA recommend waiting 6 weeks after applying before chasing them so ensuring it gets there may save you a great deal of time.
Make sure you read the required documentation carefully, including what identification your require for registration. Once you are happy, send the form, all the paperwork and your cheque to the DVLA and then you may commence watching for the postman! It will take at least 5 working days.

Lambretta and Vespa scooters have been officially produced in India since the late s, in all cases the factories have been initially set up by the parent companies in Italy. The reason for this were economic; either to circumnavigate local taxes and duties, or to satisfy the local market demand at the right price. In all instances, the satellite factories were authorised by either Innocenti or Piaggio. Tooling was often sent over from Italy for production as were expert engineers who trained local staff in the production of scooters, from beginning to quality control at the end. These scooters were produced for local markets only, and rarely exported far, if at all. While these scooters were being officially produced under licence in India, they were named as either a Vespa or Lambretta.
