IVA retest pass
Had the retest today. Flew through with a couple of goes on the emissions test (needed to get the CAT nice and hot!).
Just need to register now. Unfortunately with all of the local DVLA offices closing in October, they're no longer processing new registrations - these all have to be done by Swansea now. It's going to cost a fortune to send all of my receipts off to them (it's like War & Peace).
Time to fit the hood, suspension mods ... the list goes on!
Thanks to everyone who offered advice and support.
