Mot and road tax for imported alphard?


Recommended Posts

Hello, these seem perfect for when family come to visit to haul everyone about and go camping etc. In decent luxury compared to usual "handyman" van options... How does road tax and mot work? Checking some plates for sale show no information about mot or road tax, or road tax shows as taxed at 0£? Seems too good to be true to be honest? 

 

Insurance seems to be tricky too, is it bad following post covid insurance cost boom to the moon? 

 

Lastly seems parts are alright, I am fine servicing and doing a good chunk of work myself so not too concerned as long as the parts are not unobtanium... 

 

Nissan elgrand seems also a good option with same road tax and mot questions, thoughts on those? 

 

Debating whether to keep it simple and go for a vw caravelle or something similar "local" as been burnt going for the interesting and curious before especially with parts? 

 

Appreciate any feedback/thoughts on ownership as would like to keep it for a good few years?

Hello Tomas,

 

Welcome to the Forum.

 

There is a section in the Forum on insurance.

Shop around as the on-line method is very hit and miss.
