Anyone know any more about this one? :- 
HUM 154G
✗ Untaxed
Tax due: 
1 May 2009
Incorrect tax status?
MOT
No results returned
Incorrect MOT status?
Interesting that it shows Date of first registrationMarch 1994
& Date of last V5C (logbook) issued10 April 2008
Last seen in Colne, Lancashire

Apparently HUM***G is an age related issue That would explain the late date of first registration. Although there is a Export marker on DVLA's website there is no Import marker, so no way of telling if it's an import or a re-reg. due to cherished plate sale or similar. :(

no previous registration marks showing on my end and it has an import marker, however its worth noting that some vehicles registered individually like the above for whatever reason sometimes gets an import marker even if its not an import

however the interesting thing about this Maxi  is that its Used before First registration flag is set to No, so I wonder if it was some sort of show room barn find type affair? (or someone filled in the forms/entered the data wrong LOL)

I recommend you use this tool to grab all the juicy DVLA data thats not on the 1st party checker :) https://www.carbaba.co.uk/

(just enter the reg and give it a random milage and hit "value my car" and it will show a nice bit of info, it seems to use the same back end my paid for special tool uses, the only thing it wont give is VIN numbers and what previous registration numbers a car has had if any it will only tell you its had past registrations but wont tell you what they are)

Thanks @LightBulbFun. :)

You don't seem to be able to access the data a second time. :(

I can access the same data twice just fine on my end? it does have a finite amount of look ups per day (not sure when it resets, but by the next day I know it does)

so maybe you just happen to run into that limit for the day?

That's a useful tool but threw up a spurious colour change on a vehicle I know was definitely never orange when it was built!

yeah Im not sure how accurate the colour change thing is, my special tool has the same field, except I have never seen it show any previous colours even for vehicles I know have been different colours

I have found the rest of the datasets to be accurate most of the time (there are some edge cases where current keepers dont get recorded/updated, like TPA621M still shows as having the same keeper since 1996! but these edge cases are pretty rare)

Working again now, although I am on a different device. I wonder if the data or rather the device access to it,  is cached?

It says it is not non EU import, so imported from EU?

yeah that flag is set to no, means it was imported from within the EU

if its set to Yes then it means its from outside the EU, like a JDM import or the such like

yeah not everything was marked as scrapped back then, it was up to you/the scrap yard to check the "vehicle scrapped" box on the V5 and send it back to the DVLC

My hunt for an early (1969 a 1970) cable changer has produced two possibilities.

A blue 1969 Maxi in Holland. Recently imported from Belgium.

And a white 1969 one in Sweden -

Whilst I have imported from Belgium, I have never done the same from Scandinavia. Anyone any contacts for transport at all?

This one you mean?

Seems to be about a van rather than estate, but I will have a read: thanks.

Would be this one...… Page 10 onwards if it doesn't take you to the right post. Clicking on the arrow top right should link to the first relevant post though. I don't know about transporting though sorry as I elected to drive mine home.

MBH349H, if that is the reg. May not even have been registered with DVLC, as prior to 1974 (I think) cars were registered with Local Offices and were not on computer. ;)

indeed, and even if it made it onto the DVLA computer, it may still have vanished as they archived off a lot of early 1980's stuff at one point

(ie stuff that had seen no activity ie taxation or keeper changes etc since the 1981 or so, got archived off the DVLC computer at some unknown point in time)
