Step 3

Submit the application. DVLA will mail you the appropriate forms in 7-10 days.


Step 4

Once you receive the documents, you need to fill out the V267 and V55/4 forms. We have included examples of both documents that include instructions for how they need to be filled out.


Step 5

Once you complete the V267 and V55/4 forms, you need to add a copy of the Certificate of Conformity that you received with the bike. In addition, you must also provide either a copy of your photocard driving license OR one original document that confirms your name and one original document that confirms your address.

Documents that are accepted to confirm your name:

  • Decree nisi or decree absolute

Documents that are accepted to confirm your address:

  • Gas, electricity, water or landline phone bill issued in the last three months
