    IVA Paperwork

    I'm desperate to send off my IVA application but I'm still awaiting for the engine dating certificate to materialise.

    Does anyone know, can I send the application off with receipts and photos then show the engine dating cert at IVA?
    Regards

    No, I'm not "repairing" it, I'm fine tuning its performance.

    My gut feeling is wait for the cert. You do not want to get to IVA and find they will not test as all paperwork not correct

    Alternatively my last one (that needed the age verification) I just presented the certification at the test and all good.

    I think the answer will be yes, my engine age was Definitely confirmed whilst at the IVA appointment.

    Hope this helps,

    I'd be included to wait.... and do remember to take it with you to the IVA test!

    Homer alert: make sure you can also remember where the engine numbers are stamped on the actual engine to prove the certificate relates to your actual engine. Been there, done that....the wrong way

    Never sent a certificate off for all the tests I’ve done. Just present it on the day.

    I also just presented mine at the retest as mine failed on the first test as the proof I had was not from a certified source and had no problem.

    Cheers guys, I’ll send it off tomorrow I think.

    I guess if they’ve got an issue with it, they’ll simply send it back rather than taking payment then refusing to test me.

    I actually found the IVA admin staff and the registration people incredibly friendly and helpful on the phone....IVA testers seem pleasant but are like traffic wardens or VAT inspectors which I guess goes with the job.
