this 2003 Spanish import SHUD FAIL ON all front fog lamps fitted to vehicles first used on or after 1 March 2018? [/ quote]

Errr no not quiet.

This vehicle was first used 2003 when it was initially registered in Spain. So for test purpose it would be regarded as a 2003 registered vehicle.

The import process into the UK means the vehicle gets a previously unallocated age related registration (03 - 13)

The UK V5 is issued as an indicator that the vehicle has had a previous life in another country but is now being used (first use 2021) with a UK identity (registered import).

For test purposes, it's still a nigh on 20 year old motor.

First registered establishes when it came to life in 2003, with a non UK identity.

"First used" refers to the date of issue of a UK identity...V5 & age related registration.

Question..
why does the date 'first registered' in check-mot.service.gov.uk
become 'the date of first use' on mot testing.service.gov.uk
just tested a 2003 motor & mot testing informs me date of first use is 2021?


Was it an import ?
