Hello,

Looking for some help on this one, can't find anything through google.

We have a VIN number of an old car we're looking at buying but the seller doesn't have any reg plates, does anyone know a way of find the reg from the VIN?

One of the VIN decoders says it's 1980. Would like to find a reg if possible as it would help if applying for a V5.

Thanks!

If it's an old motor with the VIN & plate etc. the DVLA can issue the plate as they will have the records.

Unlikley most of the online systems will have access to the reg. if the vehicle has been dormant.

In some circumstances they may ask for evidence of the VIN and in extreme may even want to inspect the "vehicle".

Suggest you phone the seller and ask them?

Have you tried a Vauxhall forum to check on this Vivaro?
