First off open an account with HMRC.

Don't neglect to inform them. It shouldn't cost to this given the age of the vehicle but they can fine you 50 per day.

Read this DVLA guide: https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...919/V355X5.pdf

Look up V55 on a search engine.

You will need to MoT it on the chassis number.

Provide them with all the paperwork necessary.

You shouldn't have to worry about Certificate of Conformity, CoC, as the vehicle was originally used in a European country.

HMRC first then sort out lights MOT if you can drive on German insurance as UK insurance on chassis number will be valid up to 30 days so don't insure till you get all papers sorted if possible.Really easy process

you dont give enough information.
Did you buy it with the uk mot?
Did the original importer give you any nova (notice of vehicle arrival) paperwork?

Before dvla will register it (after you sent the v55/5 paperwork) they will need proof that any import or vat has been paid.
Importing from outside the eu incurs a 30% penalty (10% import duty plus 20% vat) but not too sure theres vat to pay when it comes from germany?

NO VAT if it has been in use for more than 6 months, and covered more than 6,000Km
