No ministry plates; no MOT



Before you take a commercial vehicle for its annual test, you must have a plating certificate – also known as a ministry plate – that shows the permitted axle and gross vehicle weights.

This is listed as part of the process in the DVLA’s V355 guidance notes when you first register your vehicle. But if you’ve bought a new vehicle from a dealer or manufacturer who registered it, it’s worth checking that the plating certificate is included. If not, you’ll have to apply for one before you can take your vehicle to annual test.

To get your plating certificates, you must email your European Community Whole Vehicle Type Approval (ECWVTA) certificates to NTA@vosa.gsi.gov.uk or post them to:

DVSA Testing and Support Services
Ellipse
Padley Road
Swansea
SA1 8AN

In your covering note, you must include:
• customer name and address
• vehicle registration mark
• any reduced gross and train weights for Vehicle Excise Duty tax purposes
• date of first registration

We will create the plates and will usually be able to issue you with them within 16 weeks of receipt of your certificates.
