NORTHERN IRELAND

There are special access procedures for the records held at the previous DVLNI office
(now listed simply as "Coleraine" in the following list).

1.   Where a request is made with the intention to register a vehicle under a particular
VRN (vehicle registration number) and it is with or without evidence then the request
should be sent to  K&R/D4,  DVLA,  Swansea,  SA99 1ZZ.

2.   Where a request is made to ascertain any information there is about a particular
mark, a standard V888 form should be completed and sent with the fee (£5) to
Vehicle Record Enquiries, DVLA, Swansea SA99 1AJ.  The enquirer should note on
the form "please check with DVA, Coleraine"  to avoid rejection by staff unfamiliar
with this procedure.
