IVA stands for Individual Vehicle Approval and relates to Type Approval of vehicles in the UK. Type Approval is the process which ensures that vehicles, their systems, and components, meet the appropriate environmental and safety standards for use in the UK and Europe. For a vehicle to be registered into the UK it must show that it has some form of Type Approval. In the case of new right hand drive vehicles supplied at your local retailer they will be supplied by the manufacturer with a mass scale Type Approval called a certificate of conformity.
The only car registrar in the UK to have made a considerable investment in a DVSA approved testing facility. This means DVSA inspectors use this recommended partner onsite testing lane to issue individual type approvals to client’s vehicles.
Your vehicle will arrive at My Car Import premises and leave fully registered without the need for it to be driven to a DVSA centre. With a worldwide presence and ongoing commitment to all aspects of UK compliance, and market leaders in the field.
An IVA test is undertaken by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) at a testing station or a DVSA approved designated premises. The DVSA staff visit the site throughout the week and carry out inspections on client’s vehicles accompanied by one of our IVA technicians. Once satisfied they issue IVA pass certificates that we use to register your vehicle with the DVLA. Your vehicle will always need some level of modification to achieve UK type approval and the My Car Import technicians have the experience to pre prepare your vehicle to IVA standard so when it is inspected there is the confidence it will pass every time.
