Hi Jon, I've been scratching my head over this as the DVLA website takes you down a rabbit hole of links that go nowhere if you try to find the relevant information on getting a chassis vin number prior to IVA inspection.

The best I could find was in this link -

Section 8 says 'To get a VIN stamped on the vehicle you will need to
contact a garage or motor dealer that provides this service.'

That suggests to me that there are designated garages/dealers that can inspect your chassis and allocate it a vin number. Once you have that then you'll be able to apply for an IVA inspection for the completed car.

I'd start by ringing round local MOT testers and ask them if they provide that service or know someone who does.

Good luck!
