    Iva Confusion

    alan thanks for the input and the sales pitch re the paperwork . re the original question . i have been refused an sva by not having build photos, now mayby thats cos i have built a few or not i dont know. but i suspect its because i didnt appear in the pics . my reply was based on experiance not the written word , if you are out of the loop re the regs and the interpritation of the regs. i have a member here 2 years with a 2 b , trying to get a test. no chance cos he says he didnt build it its still in his garage . the dvla and vosa are not consistant , there rules are not consistant . to regester a car you need to be whithin the rules however the rules are changed from area to area depending on the interpretation . there is no real rules or regs to work from , they are read aND INTERPRETED differently from area to area i can only speak from experiance , i try to help not hinder . dad

    Iva Confusion

    mark i dont need guidence notes. just try to regester it ,i have a lot of experiance in this . if it works then great . but generally it wont. you may slip past the outer guard of vosa .iva means individually built vechicle , built by the person presenting it for test .you might get away with it , but generally you wont . you need to be further involved with vosa to experiance the intence commitment they give to the iva , you need to appreciate the commitment they give to the test , not just the test but the regestration process , try it if it works , great , i applaud you . however the question was different . i have been denied a test at the application stage , cos i couldnt prove i had bolted it together . so dont tell me about rules and regs cos it dont matter . try it . if it works great .if not ,mmmmmmmmmmmm graham

    Iva Confusion

    i think you need to chill out . and not make personal comments you know nothing about . we will see what happens re the regestration of this car . mayby you were inviolved in the sale of this kit , i dont know , i only can comment on my experiance of the dvla . and the dificulity of regestering a kit that you havnt built . iva states an individually built vechicle built by the person presenting it . how can a second purchacer prove that if not rebuilt with photographic evedince. graham,

    Iva Confusion

    to add the only way we have kits in this country is because they are individually built .ie built by the person that presents it for inspection i have built 7 kits and ivad /svad 5 2 were rebuilds . i cannott attempt to regester any more as i am classed as a manufacturer . wrong mayby , as its only a hobby .my zero was tested under gbs .as i cant do any more . my info is that any kit presented should be constructed by the person presenting it . as an individually built car , thats the rules ,to ovoid crash tests and seat belt tug tests . you can grizzle as much as you want , but unles you prove me wrong i will speak as i understand it . to add we have a guy locally who canott get a test cos he cant prove he built the car , had it 2 years now , old photos ect.but he didnt build the car . my advice was to strip the car and photo the rebuild as evidence of build . graham

    Iva Confusion

    mark just pre empting your reply you say i am talking rubish re the individual build please clarify . iva is about an individually built vechicle built by one individual person . not built by one person ,not sold to another and claimed to be built by the second . sorry dude i have a lot of experiance with vosa . read your personal reply ? graham

    Iva Confusion

    the vin for the car dont exist , its a new car . either you apply to dvla for a new vin or you can if you want make up your own . biggest prob you may have is you need to have built the car totaly by youself and have photographic evedence of build .a part built by someone else is just that , you need to satisfy vosa that you have built it yourself. iva = indivadualy built . ie you . you will need to strip the car down to its componant parts and rebuild it to achieve iva status. photos are required as are recipts . graham

    Gbs Open Day, 23rd July

    hammy i have tonight mailed richard hall , through rhocar , he may or may not recieve the mail , as not a member . i have asked him to address the issues raised, and respond . i have in the past asked him to do a tech piece for the rhsc marks ,to improve handling ect . on the forum or through the mag . to raise the profile of gbs whithin the rhocar comunity. he was in rhsc before the demise . he knows the good and bad points of all the rhsc marks . and should know how to improve them ,i thought this might be a point of dual interest, and a way forward to inprove the manufacturer/ customer experiance. i will speak to gbs on sat re the questions asked . see you all there i hope . questions ready ? graham

    Gbs Open Day, 23rd July

    concidering this origonal post was about an open day a bbq , treasure hunt,also free test drives. it appears to have turned into a slagging post . if you have issues with gbs . grab your balls and ring them , let them know directly about your issues . they should respond in a positive manner to resolve the issue . if they dont , then air the matter. i have had issues with gbs but have been resolved with dialogue. give them a chance , they are what we drive , they can supply the spares for all the rhsc marks , if they want to , that will depend on our commitment to them , slag them off .and in reality they dont need to make anything for us . dont forget they have a remarkable product in the zero that continues to sell in the deepest recesion since the 30s. just a few thoughts inmho graham
