What is an
Independent Certificate of Conformity?
To enable you to fill in the UK V55/5 vehicle registration form the DVLA recommends you use a conformity document or 'CoC'. If you have lost your original CoC or bought a vehicle without a CoC, buy an independent CoC from us to help you fill-in your V55 form; or call us or E-Mail us if unsure.
If you are taking a vehicle to an EU country, the authorities there will almost certainly require information about vehicle type approval. This is sometimes necessary even if just driving through EU countries or using toll systems.

LAW IN THE EU
registration of vehicles
In theory (LEGALLY) if the vehicle has already been registered in an EU member state it does not require a manufacturer's Certificate of Conformity the second time around (in accordance with EC directive 2007/C68/04 - if a vehicle was already registered in a member state, it should not pass again the same tests already passed, nor criteria for registration again).
