    Bought a classic in January and sent off the form and brown tax book to change ownership I received brown tax book back stamped but no reg cert
    Do I have to tax the car first to receive the reg cert ?

    I've never had a reg cert for a brown book car, but then I've only got two brown book cars and I've never got round to taxing them yet.

    When I had freshly imported card registered back in 2010 that I didn't tax for ten months, the reg cert wasn't sent out until first taxing.

    tax book is the cert. You don't need any more.

    If the car has it's original old Irish brown log book, that is the 'reg cert'. The 'new' VRC is only used for vehicles registered in Ireland after 1993.
