I am a non UK resident. I want to know if it’s possible to bring a non UK spec car and get it registered there, get insurance, a license, etc. I have held an international license in the EU and am currently living overseas. Trying to decide if it’s best to sell and buy something there, ride a bike, or bring my Mini.

Like IWMTom said, it's easier to sell up and buy a UK car once you're here. Insurance on imported LHD cars is more expensive, let alone the paperwork to get it registered here. People do it but I don't think it's worth the hassle. Things like drive throughs and automated parking barriers suck in a LHD car as well, along with overtaking and roundabouts.

Thanks for the reply, I’ve been on the site, just seeing if it is feasible. I guess it depends on if its cheaper to sell and purchase a vehicle or import what I have.
