When VRTing the car, the address on the proof of address you provide is the one that determines the reg. I just did this recently. Gave a Cork proof of address (my home home) and then once I got the log book and went to tax it, I changed the address to my current one. Got my C reg number on the day in the VRT centre.

edit. tl;dr yes sticking Dublin on it before he dealer registers it should work. Not sure what sort of proof they'll need from a dealer.

Since there's now going to be a transition deal until the end of 2020, I would have thought everything will continue as is until then at least.

A deal would have to include cars (for the UK given how many cars are made over there, and if they've caved so much on other areas, I don't see why they won't compromise to get that put through as well) so it's highly unlikely there will be any kind of tariffs (customs duties) either, but I suppose it is possible that VAT will have to be paid on imports with it being non-EU.

I can understand that if an individual is VRTing a car themselves but it's very possible that the VRT is already paid by the dealer but the car is not registered yet until it's sold. When I bought my last imported car from a dealer I was never asked for proof of address when they registered it. They just asked me if I wanted the reg in my county or theres.

Yep, I think it’s the same as registering a new car, they don’t look for any proof. You could register the car at the garages address using their post code, tax it, then change address?

Think one of the scum vans got me outside Cork.

The thing was hidden by a truck on the inside lane right up until I was alongside it - doing a hundred and eight.

Still, backfiring it through the Jack Laynch tunnel amused.

Just waiting to see someone attach one of these to the handlebars of their road bike so they can watch YouTube while weaving through traffic.

We can get one of these for the cars,not a bit unsafe.

Anyone done similar?

Disclaimer: I'm not one for believing in this D reg nonsense but the car has a somewhat limit market so for resale purposes a D reg would probably be more universally accepted.
Yep, I did this. Just give them any address. I gave my sister’s but I’m pretty certain it’s not verified, so literally anything will do.
