    Cool IVA retest Pass

    After a tonne of problems with the speedo in the past, my Dax passed it's IVA retest. Woo Hoo.

    It's such a relief that the speedo worked this time.

    Thanks everyone.
    I'm in the middle of completing the V55/4 form and have run into a little brick wall.

    My car uses a 1973 engine so only had to complete a visual smoke test rather than a CO2 test. Trying to get any sense out of the DVLA to understand what Road Tax i need to include in the application form is proving close to impossible. The DVLA web chat person suggested the tax would be based on engine size but the DVLA tool for calculating it uses CO2 emissions. I left it blank and it was about to try and tax the kit on the same basis as a Tesla!
    Has anyone else managed to find out how we figure out what the tax is?

    Cheers,
    Mark

    That's a good harmony to hear! A Cobra passing the test.

    Thanks Jim, That particular penny hadn't dropped!
    I don't suppose you also have any thoughts on how i find out what Tax i should be paying? I tried to contact the DVLA but no one answered the call. I also tried the Webhelp twice. The first time they terminated the session without answering. The 2nd time they pointed me towards the DVLA website and said to use the engine capacity to determine the tax but that refers to CO2 emissions based tax rates.

    Cheers,
    Mark
