How to register an ENDURO EBIKE as road legal L1E MOPED in the UK
STEP ONE – CONTACT DVLA FOR A VIN NUMBER DVLAVIN@dvla.gsi.gov.uk Give them the following info – Your name – Your address – The reason a VIN number is required Tell them its a self-built electric moped.
STEP TWO – MAKE YOUR BIKE READY FOR MSVA Download the MSVA Manual to work out what will be tested on your bike https://www.gov.uk/government/publica…
READ THE MANUAL THOROUGHLY AS IT WILL REALLY HELP YOU DISCUSS WITH YOUR TESTER ANY ISSUES YOU MIGHT FACE ON THE DAY. The guy I had was very down to earth and he advised me on a couple of things but generally, he was quite laid back because I had clearly tried hard to cover all areas. DO YOUR HOMEWORK, DON’T WASTE ANYONE’S TIME
STEP 3 – BOOK THE MSVA TEST Download the MSVA application form and submit it online. https://www.gov.uk/government/publica… The DVLA will then contact you to take payment of £85 for the test and you can book a date On the day of the test show up a bit earlier to allow time to fix any issues if you are unloading the bike from a car or van. I would recommend taking any tools just in case you have to fix something! Once the bike passes you will be given a Ministers Approval Certificate, DONT LOSE IT!
STEP 4 – REGISTER THE NEW VEHICLE Download the V55/5 to register a NEW vehicle. https://www.gov.uk/government/publica… Fill in the form, referring to for V355/5 which will help you greatly. Send the completed V55/5 together with the following other docs to the DVLA – registration fee of £55 (postal order) – MAC Certificate (original) – identify documents (photocopy of drivers license) – Proof of address (bank statement etc)
WAIT PATIENTLY, BUY A PROPER CRASH HELMET AND SEEK OUT SOME INSURANCE (expect to pay between £100-300 depending on age)
