You can apply for the cert online now, click on 'Urkundengenerator' and it takes you through the process for applying for the birth certificate, including a secure online payment system so no more faxing off credit card no's etc :)

Marvellous! Thankyou.Certificate duly ordered...Mike :d
In the interest of data protection they cannot give you out on the certificate the original engine number. However, if you tell them a number that you believe to be the original they can confirm it!

That's really interesting, on my reg document the engine number given is not that of the engine that came with the car when I bought it (which in any case was a nasty late Mexican unit), it seems to have been from about the right period so I put it down as the number on my application. Hopefully therefore I they will be able to confirm if it is the number for the original engine. Frustratingly it seems that my original engine is being squirreled away by a previous owner and he wont let me buy it back. 😞 I've also just sent my £5 off to DVLA to get the ownership history of the car in the UK since 1957, it'll be interesting to see what comes back!Mike :d
How did you go about contacting the DVLA? I would like to do this, write letters to the people with stamped addressed envelopes and hope for replies!:d 😎
https://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Motoring/OwningAVehicle/AdviceOnKeepingYourVehicle/DG_4022067 and then follow the options until you get to the downloadable form after the section marked; "Previous keeper details for your vehicle". You have to print it off and then fill it in giving a reason for wanting the information about the previous owners. Then send it off in an envelope with a cheque for £5 and hope for the best! Mike :d
Great idea :idea: Thanks for the info! I want to do this for my 79 (as its the only british car we own :lol:)Nic BC, exactly how much is £10 :?: is that some rare unique 'hi-top' currency? :lol: Needhelp, it is really easy and straightforward even starting without any documents at all, once you have an MOT and birth certificate. The Dvla will almost certainly ask to inspect your car these days but its nothing to be worried about.
You'll see £ on here when you look at messages posted prior to the forum software getting upgraded a while back. It's what the forum database recorded behind the scenes for a £ (pound) sign.To answer the question; £10 means a tenner (£10) in new money. :d
