Uh oh, first problem already! I wanted to make some calls today to get quotes and assessments from local, reputable VW restoration specialists. So I go and look for the MOT failure document and failed to find it.
Not a problem in its self. You can now get your vehicles MOT history online, just type in your vehicles registration number and the document reference number from your V5c document.... hold on, did you say V5c?
Surely the document reference from my V5 would work? No. Apparently I should have been sent a replacement V5C - I suspect I was. However, I don't know where on earth it ended up so I phoned the DVLA and ordered a new V5C.
Guess I'll have to wait a few more days..
