Hi, plenty of threads on this.
In my case I followed the procedure on the DVLA website and sent off for their info pack. Completing the forms is relatively easy using the help guide they provide. I sent mine off with the required £55 and 2 weeks later the new registration document arrived. I didn’t need an insurance certificate or MOT but did send a heritage certificate from jaguar as supporting evidence.

My experience is the same as Tims. In my case i obtained an endorsement from the Jaguar Drivers club to confirm the existence of the car. That plus the heritage certificate was all i needed plus the fee and forms. However i did have an issue where one digit was misplaced on the Nova. so please double check all the numbers.
I didnt need an mot which was good as in my case (XK120) it was a basket case for restoration

Hi Phil,

Just a question, did you register your car before the completion of your restoration?

thanks

Peter

This is something you couldn't do before the cars became MOT exempt. When I made enquiries I was told the car needed an MOT, which I'm sure was correct at the time but things have changed so I think I'll have another go at registering mine.
