I have a guy from France interested in buying my car but he's asking for a COC, what is it and where can I get one from?

From Vauxhall HQ for about 50. Need to call them with your chassis number.

I've often seen this on Elise/Exige ads. Why do our European cousins need this?

From what I understand, it's basically a standardised type approval certificate and basically lists what we already have on the new style V5C's regarding manufacturer, emissions, weights, etc. Probably compounded by the fact that "Europe" doesn't know what a Vauxhall is and only recognises an Opel.

Some European countries requires CoC's when registering imported vehicles, some dont.

You need to talk to Jonathan Bell on 01582 427288, or email regdata@uk.gm.com to acquire a Certificate of Conformity. It is unique to every vehicle and costs 96...at least that is what I was told in July 2011.

Best Regards,

I got mine from Vauxhall and it cost 150. :angry2:

Basically, there's no problem getting them. Vauxhall even gave me a copy in German, and if you have one import, certainly into Switzerland, is much easier.

I'm just going through the same process with my Tiumph motorcycle. It's just a piece of paper and they charge 200.

If you want to know what one looks like pm me and I'll scan it.

When I sold my car to Karl, he sorted all the papers out, so leave it to the new owner. thumbsup
