Have a read of the testers manual, I used to be an examiner so can explain anything you don't understand in it.

But have a good read of old threads on here cos we've been through this many times.

With the MSVA manual DON'T print it. There are 200 odd pages most of which do not apply.
Things may have changed slightly due to the closure of local DVLA offices but
the usual route is to get the vehicle to a point where it will pass MSVA. Apply to DVLA for a VIN. Once this is stamped into the frame you can then book an MSVA inspection appointment with VOSA. Next is an MOT and a trip to a public weighbridge. Once you have the ministers certificate of approval, certificate of insurance, MOT cert. weighbridge ticket, first time registration fee and the fee for first years tax, you can apply to DVLA for the V5C. They also like to have any receipts for parts used in the build, to prove you are not using stolen bits. The present V5C can be used to show you have legal ownership of any reliant items such as engine gearbox and axle.
Good luck.
PS lots of info on the Manky Monkey Motors site

If you get the SVA you get 3 years MOT on the SVA. You do NOT need a MOT before.

That's not strictly true, but often quoted.

If DVLA give you a "new" reg you don't need an MOT for three years.

But if you use second hand parts and get an old or Q reg you should get an MOT as the vehicle is deemed not to be new.

Hi Harry,
could you resolve a query I have as regards using a modified reliant rialto chassis as far as the points system goes.
I want to use most of the reliant parts for a trike build, I want to get the chassis and modify it so its narrower and fit the engine to the sides of the chassis. Will this allow me to use the chassis vin number still and if not will I be given a Q plate because I have modified the chassis. I will be using the existing cross member but they will be shortened and replaced in situe where they came out. The front end will have my version of a pair of leading link forks that were designed by a guy called Tony Foale in the 1970s.
thanks in advance

Hi Alan,

Sorry but if you modify the chassis in any way then it loses it's identity, INF26 is published by DVLA and covers this stuff.

Tony Foale stuff is good I've got his book somewhere.

Oh it's a pleasure. It reminds me of good times at work.

I'm sure you remember The articles you put in 100% with Chris Corker, I was his assistant.

I've had some damn good jobs but that was one of the best.
