What is the SVA?


Single Vehicle Approval is required for Light Conversions of US vehicles (visiting military personnel only), including SUVs such as Ford F150, Chevrolet Avalanche and Toyota Tundra. These vehicles require a Class 7 MOT.


Temporary vehicle imports by visiting US Forces personnel have exemption from the SVA, as long as there is proof that U.K. vehicle condition requirements are met i.e. light conversion may be needed to meet U.K. standards.


Before registration of any foreign-made vehicle, including vehicles that are less than 3 years old, you are required to prove compliance by obtaining an MOT certificate.


Only nominated stations can provide an MOT certificate with the SVA stamp provided by the Vehicle Inspectorate.
