So now we'll hopefully find out if the OP writes a letter to DVLA based on the manufacturing date and succeeds, or if he wants someone else to do all the work for him. All the information to decode the M-plate was in the other thread and the OP could have deduced this for himself and given something back by posting what they thought. :roll:

Still, nice to know that my date estimate from the VIN number was correct, thanks Aidan

Hi Thanks guys for all your help. So am i correct in saying its a nov 80 production van and not a 79. So i can apply for exemptions nov next year 2020. Would just like to give a mention to steve@abvwc who will write a letter confirming the van is historic status and this is reccognised by the DVLA. If you are a member of an affiliated club its price of stamp if not just a small charge.

Hi everyone, back again.I am still trying to find out more information about my van. Been in contact with veg uk to request a letter of conformity. They contacted vw museum in Germany , They seem to think that because my M plate has BH on it that it was made in Brazil and they don't hold any details on it. What would you reccomend I try now .Thanks.

The BH is stamped on the M plate. Someone suggested it could have been produced in Brazil but since been told they never built them there, so may not be of any relevance now.

T 25 birth certificate - UPDATE !

Post by funkbus »

Hi All,

DVLA accepted my German Army release document in the end (as proof of birth date) - just needed a bit of translation via Google Translate ! Make sure you follow their instructions to the letter.


Am just in the process of importing a T3 from the German Army.

I have the Army release document which contains most of the info requested on the V55/5 but, the guys at DVLA seem mixed in their response to this. I would be very grateful to hear of ?
experiences by others in importing a van and obtaining any necessary info from VW

Thanks,

Steve W
