my mg on the road at last (it's a long one)

Hi all, this saturday will be the frist time in 3 years i would of been behind the wheel of my zed, I've been tring to get it on the road for that long it started with a new gearbox in 2006, after that as i was based in germany with the army i had to deregister it from the bfg (british forces germany) licencing system cos it was stuck in england so this is were it gets trickie, I have no MOT no tax no V5 and the DVLA tell me i have to get a Certificates of Conformity and a MOT to get my car on the road. getting the MOT done on the chassis number i went to the DVLA in preston. this is the frist vist out of 4 (to 3 DVLA offices). they tell me that i have the wrong paper work and i need a dating certificate as well witch is 100, well i had to get it. i went back to the DVLA in preston and this time they said my insureance was not right so they could not do it again, by this time i've had a ford escort to get me back to germany, then the army tell me i'm going to canada for 10 months so i try and get my car on the road one last time before i go off to canada, so i try going to a differant DVLA office (carlisle number 2) with all my new paper work and new insurance i try to get it Registrated again, this time they say they could not register the car as it was an inport and i had to fill out new forms and it was late in the day and they were closing, so i had to go. the next day i got on the flight to canada. i got back to england for new years and had to get another MOT (thats two MOT's with the same mileage as the car was on a triller to get to the garage) and i got posted back from germany to portsmonth at the same time as coming back from canada i sore time to get my car on the road so i got all the paper work and insurance togerther one last time and went to the office in portsmonth(3) and they put an end to three years of not driving my zed.

sorry about ranting on but i had to let some steam
