    IVA test

    I've imported my self built Autocraft Python Cobra to the UK recently and it needs some work to prepare it for the IVA test. I'm looking for a kit car/Cobra specialist garage who could get it ready for the IVA test.
    I would be grateful for any recommendations.

    Thanks

    depends on where abouts in the uk you will be based - but you could give Anthony at Absolute Horsepower a shot or Cheng Lim at thunder road cars

    didn't think it would need an iva test though if already been on road and registered elsewhere - same as a yank import they don't go through an iva??????

    Thanks for the recommendations. I assumed it would need the IVA, I'll need to confirm this.

    Japanese imports go through a IVA type test or they used to.

    I believe it depends on how old the car is. That is if it was previously registered.
    I think there is a cut off date of ten years beyond which little checking is required other than passing an MOT.
    There may be an inspection to check the numbers match etc.

    You must have built that over 20 years ago ?
