Default Done VRT, am I gonna be OK?

Iíve done the VRT today, to my disappointement they do not give you the reg. number straight away but rather he said you get a text when the Revenue is ready and then go there again (theyíre open 2 days/week) to pay and get the plate. This can take up to ten days so July 15th perhaps.

One thing that bugs me is that on the receipt, they copied the mileage from the odo so it is in miles instead of km, but as you can see it just says "Odometer: 4252" (which is 6840 km!). I am afraid some big head at the Revenue will add VAT because of the ď6000 rule" (?).

Second thing, 4 days ago I got a letter from the insurance dated June 27 (insurance started June 16th) saying I have 12 days to change plates. Otherwise itíll be cancelled.
June 27 + 12 days = ~July 9th deadline, but I might not be able to get my new reg. no. before then (?).
Iíve just mailed them the VRT receipt to show that Iíve done it.

Should I be worried about these two issues??

Just tell 'em that the ODO is miles. (Don't think it will even be an issue).
They say 10 days just to cover themselves, but in reality I think I only had to wait 3 days and I got the text. I think they've a fairly quick turnaround because the sooner they get in touch, the sooner they get paid.

Insurance company should be happy with receipt, again, just ring 'em.

I was through the process recently and i got my registration before i left the centre, find any paperwork they gave you and , read thoroughly, the reg number is probably there....did you pay a vrt amount on the day.


The last six digits of the frame/chassis is your pin to road tax the bike and two weeks after paying rod tax your log book will arrive, sounds like you got a muppet at the office, some staff are only in training and mix rules for cages with bikes......

No need to be worrying about insurance once everything is legit, my insurance gave me a month to get plates changes....but i had them in two days...........................................good luck

Yes I told him that the odo is (obviously) in miles when he asked me to turn on the ignition, even mentioned that 4252ml=6840 km. Yet he wrote a generic 4252 on the receipt.

I am probably overworrying... a habit I've formed the hard way when dealing with public services.

I didn't pay a cent, the document in the link above is the only paperwork I got. No reg number. They specified that now, one must wait for the documentation to get into the Revenue system and after some days, you get a txt to get there again (no need to bring the bike he said), pay and get the reg.

This is ridiculous

I have never experienced this , i have cleared dozens of bikes, im thinking now the problem is the mistaken mileage reading, lookss like you are getting set up for the vat hit......do not pay this extra money , just make them aware of their error....

I think it's like PADDYOT said, since they KNOW odo mileage is in miles for any vehicle imported from the UK, obviously. So even if he wrote 4252 on the receipt (as 'odometer reading'), the Revenue will figure out the conversion to km. They cannot be so STUPID... in fact I even felt condescending when pointing out that it was in miles to the inspector.

That only happens when they can't identify the bike...
Bonneville is surely on their system but Bonneville SE probably isn't...
They're too dumb to figure it out so refer it head office...
Would be surprised if you don't hear from them today...

This normal, I wouldn't panic at all.

They tend to do it on alot of the newer vehicles also being VRT'd. Wait until you get the call, they'll tell you the figure owed and then send another text as a reminder. Its a case of just pop back and pay then. If its more then what you think you should pay, appeal it once paid.

Me neither! Few issues with various KTMs. My SMR wasn't on their system so it's now an SMT!

You aren't dealing with the public service, you are dealing with a private company who do the job on behalf of Revenue.

Just to confirm in case it happens to someone else, that I have received the text message ('your registration fee is now available') 2 days after the VRT, so I've been there today and they didn't charge any VAT (despite my worry about the generic "Odometer: 4252" on their receipt).

I've also changed my insurance details (online) with the new reg no. and tomorrow I will be able to pay the motor tax (online) and finally be done.

To conclude, I must say that after reading so much about importing from the UK, I thought it wasn't so easy (and no ferry receipt either), also thanks to the huge help from this forum of course!

Perhaps they don't want to take risks: when we walked to the bike the guy noticed "Bonneville SE" on the side panels - and he even asked me - so this is the "SE" huh? (it actually says "Bonneville 865" on the V5... because of course the only difference with the SE is the colour scheme), hence (I presume) the wait.
