EU Registered Vehicles (including tow vehicles and trailers) 

You must carry the following documentation when temporarily importing EU registered vehicles into the UK: 

The C110 form must be completed before you arrive into the UK. Print out two copies of the form, sending one off to the UK address given on the website and keeping one with each applicable vehicle. 

EU Registered vehicles will NOT require an ATA Carnet for temporary UK import. 

Trailers 

It is not clear whether the UK requires trailers being temporarily imported to be separately registered. 

Many EU countries do require trailers to have separate registrations from their tow vehicle. 

All trailers must be properly insured to be towed on the road in the UK and be in a roadworthy condition. 

Overseas (Non-EU) Registered Vehicles 

You must carry the following documentation when temporarily importing overseas (non-EU) registered vehicles into the UK: 

  • Overseas Driving Licence 
  • Vehicle Registration Document

Non-EU registered vehicles entering the UK / Europe from overseas will require a customs entry on arrival. Your shipping agent will be able to provide further information on this procedure.

ULEZ AND THE LONDON CONGESTION CHARGE

Don't forget to complete Transport for London forms!

The Ultra Low Emission Zone charge (ULEZ) operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Veteran vehicles registered in the UK, which are exempt from paying Road Tax, are recognized by Transport for London (TfL) as being exempt from the ULEZ tax. However, owners of all veteran vehicles registered outside of the UK must register their Run vehicle in advance for exemption from ULEZ. You need to start by setting up a Transport for London (TfL) London Road User Charging account and once you have done this you can register your veteran vehicle for exemption from the ULEZ tax. Full directions can be downloaded here.

The London Congestion Charge is a £15 daily charge if you drive within the Congestion Charge zone 07:00-22:00 Monday to Friday and 12:00-18:00 Saturday and Sunday. There is no charge on Christmas Day (25 December). ALL vehicles, regardless of age and whether they are registered in the UK or overseas must pay this charge. You pay this via the Transport for London website (either with a TfL London Road User Charging account or direct payment on the site).


 

OTHER INFORMATION

Driving in the UK 

If you have a full, valid driving licence issued in any overseas country, you can drive in the UK for at least a year. 

Insurance

You will need to carry an insurance Green Card for the tow vehicle, trailer and the vehicles on your trailer (if they are road registered). And you must also carry trailer and vehicle registration documents.
