ISODET’s

Customers are advised to confirm opening hours with their local offices.

For those of you who are posted to the UK between 14 December and 2 January, BFG C&I will issue a BFG NOVA or NMT NOVA, providing the application is received no later than 13 Dec 17. This will enable you to either DVLA register in Germany before 14 December, or to complete a postal registration with DVLA when you return to the UK. DVLA registration will be able to be completed up until 14 Dec 17, provided a BFG NOVA has been issued, please be reminded that for DVLA applications 5 working days’ notice is required.

Applications will still be accepted by C&I and VLO after 13 December and both VLO and C&I will operate normally from Tue 2 Jan 18. A BFG NOVA cannot be issued to you until you have completed 12 months accumulated BFG registration and your vehicle has completed 6000 km (3728 miles). This means that if your anniversary date lies between 13 Dec 17 and 2 Jan 18, a BFG NOVA cannot be issued until 2 Jan 18. You need to factor this into your planning.

If you return a vehicle to the UK without a valid BFG NOVA, or before the NOVA validity start date, you will be in breach of BFG Standing Orders and customs regulations. You may be subject to both disciplinary and revenue recovery action.

Please call the VLO or BFG C&I if you have any queries regarding your own personal circumstances.

VLO can be reached on 94881 2637 or 05219 254 2637.
BFG C&I can be reached on 94881 2635 or 05219 254 2635.
