Classic car without paperwork

    Hi I bought car without any paperwork. Car was imported probably from Germany between 1990-1995 but no one registered in Ireland. Check VIN number on few websites and it’s not recorded as stolen.
    What I should do now? What’s first step form me? Any one had similar situation?

    Not been there myself but you'll probably have to source original documents (deregistration/export) from country of origin.

    Can NCTS accept dating certs for vehicles pre 1981?

    Original registration certificate must be provided in all cases. A suitable dating certificate may be entertained as a last resort, but only in cases where the customer has not provided acceptable evidence explaining the absence of the original vehicle registration record e.g. a written statement from the registration authority of the previous country clarifying the position.
