Smile SVA Passed Today

What a great day today is!!!

Clear blue skies at 8am as I drove to Shrewsbury VOSA centre...every other person staring at the bright orange Marlin as it passed them by.

All 7 snag points from the original test rectified and passed with flying colours.....a very good feeling to be holding the SVA certificate....even if it was only for an hour until the DVLA guy took it off me for registration!

Should get my 1997 age related mark by the end of this week, and then off we go!!!

The drive back was even better!!! Still smiling.

Rich

Well done Rich.

The DVLA "may" take a little longer than a week. If possible have the car inspected at the DVLA centre rather than wait for them to visit you at home.

Then they have to write a report, and then send you some docs to allow you to get it taxed..................

Nice one.

John

John (Marlin Turbo),

I didn't make it very clear in my first thread....I've had the SVA done today and the DVLA inspection at the same place. Every Tuesday the DVLA visit Shrewsbury VOSA so I booked the retest and registration inspection to coincide...DVLA have taken the V55, V627/1, registration fee & tax disc money today....and say should be back with me Thurs / Fri.....fingers crossed.


Dan......

Weather (& DVLA) permitting I'm at Donnington with the Marlin. Don't think I'll be on the track but want to take the car. Not sure which day yet...will see what the weather brings.
