Anyone bought a car recently, and can advise how long it takes for the DVLA to send the new log book? Bought a car in England last week which I am importing to Ireland. Turns out the dealer gave me the wrong piece of the log book. He filled out the usual section as if he was selling within the UK. He should have given it to me and sent off the part declaring that the vehicle was being exported. To cut the story short, I cannot now import the vehicle until I get the replacement log book, and if that is not within the next 3 weeks I could in theory be fined.
