    Agricultural to PLG 30th May 17 at 5:17 PM
    Is it possible to change the taxation class i have on a vehicle from agricultural to PLG. The previous owner had it on a Agricultural for some reason. I have a licence plate and V5.

    Is it that simple. Would it not need an IVA since its not had an MOT for along time.

    No. It's already registered.

    IVA is for registering something that isn't already registered.

    It doesn't matter if the last MOT was a week ago or three decades ago - the test is the same, and the condition it needs to be in to pass is the same.

    Unimog's an HGV for "normal"use though I think. Means the OP would need an HGV licence.

    Not necessarily, could be <7.5T MGVW and registered as PHGV as my motorhome is. OP wouldn't need any additional licence if they'd passed their test prior to 1997.

    Its a Polarise Side by Side / SxS / Sit Astride. whatever they call them. I believe classed as a 'heavy quadracycle' 645kg ULW 100bhp.

    I think that fits into the L7e category;

    T Tractor - farm quads & UTVs
    T2b Heavyweight SBS E.g. Mule 4010, Ranger Diesel
    With the closest axle to the driver having a minimum track width of not less than 1 150 mm
    with an unladen mass, in running order, of more than 600 kg

    Just to resurrect this. I managed to change from agri to plg via the post office with no issues and got the amended v5 back through the post. I have a further question however.

    On the v5. The 'd.5 body type' is agri machine and the 'k. Type approval number' Is exempt. I presume because it's agri it's doesn't need. Certificate of conformity. Would this pose a problem? My understanding is that only certain vehicles fall into the exemption.

    I just don't want to drive it, get pulled over and fined, given points or worse.

    I really wouldn't worry. You have a V5C and a registration.
