Re: Exporting our Car to the UK

From what I've always understood, if you're relocating back to the UK, and you have owned the car for at least 6 months, you can import it as part of your personal effects, pay no duties or VAT and register it on UK plates without problem.

If the car is more than 3 years old (6 month ownership rule still applies) you will have to take it for an MOT test. In order to pass I believe you have to change the headlamps to a left dip and if the speedometer is in KPH only, you have to chnage it to MPH, but I'm not 100% sure on that - it's just what I heard.

As to it being worth it, I really don't know and can't answer. If it's a classic car, or a high end model such as an Aston, Bentley etc. then I guess I'd keep it. If not, I'd probably try and sell it (difficult now I know) and buy another one in the UK.
