They are probably asking for the Certificate of Conformity, also known as the "Type Approval" document. Unless yours was one of the (rare) UK-spec VFR400s (it's an "NC30", by the way), your bike would have been imported to the UK from Japan during the 00's, and such bikes do not have either of those documents as they were never "officially" imported into the UK. The UK has always had very liberal rules allowing private imports, kit cars, "grey market" imports and full road registration of enduro motorbikes. Other EU countries are more strict...

You can ask on the 400greybike forum (if you haven't already). I recall a thread about someone trying to register an imported 400cc bike in Italy within the last couple of years, and they were having a very difficult time of it.

Good luck, but it may not be possible to register a UK grey import in Spain. It may be even less possible after 29 March 2019...

Ciao,

Not Spain to my knowledge. The UK, Germany, Austria, France all had official versions. These specifications are referred to in the Honda publications from that era (e.g., workshop manual), but I don't know how many bikes were actually sold there.

If you have no joy, in Spain OP? Here's a solution. Move to Scotland, your lovely wee NC30 is already 100% road legal and Scotland has by far and away the best(est) roads in the U.K. Sorted.

But you will need waterproof everything as it rains, and rains, and, rains and then rains some more for good measure. The only variation is in winter when the rain turns to sleet and/or snow. Summer is my favourite day of the year up here.

Ah yes, that was a fine day!

I had a similar problem importing my 1998 VFR into Holland. I seem to recall that a letter from Honda UK saying that a CoC wasn’t available for that bike was accepted by the Dutch authorities.

Nonsense, but don't tell them that, they'll all bloody move up here and spoil it.

Correct re-Certificate of Conformity as this is what they will need.
Without this it can go through matriculation (registration) but it will not be cheap.
Are you moving there full time ?, as if you import a vehicle at the time of moving it can be included in your Goods & Chattle and this avoids the first registration fee (tax)
