For left-hand drive vehicles from e.g. the USA this is straightforward for us to book and carry out for you

For right-hand drive vehicles e.g. Australian imports, this can be quite difficult unless you are moving back to the UK to live permanently, have owned the vehicle at least 6 months and have lived outside of the UK for 12 months

The testing is carried out by the DVSA who own a number of test stations across the UK
