That's just stupid. The guy who imported my car could've used his insurance, but then it would have been registered to him first off, so I decided to get it registered in my name using the chassis number so I could be the first owner in the uk.
I guess you might be able to find some friendly importer to register it for you, but then you'll have another owner on the logbook.
One possible way out of this (not sure though) - maybe you could buy a reg from the dvla's website (£250 for something like R9GTT) - then get insurance company to use that - probably best to check that with the dvla though.
Finally sorted, they will use my retention certificated private registration number for the vehicle but will not reference the chassis number - hopefully good enough for registration - watch this space - thanks for all your help.
