I've ordered mine today and it said it's a 16 week lead time, so we'll see and have to be patient. I've ordered as i don't have an M code plate in my bus (worryingly), so want to know the history on the vehicle and get a replacement plate made up, does anybody know where i can get one made?

Ordered mine 13th February and it arrived dated 30th July.

In intervening correspondence it was pointed out to me that only one person is working on this at the museum, so looking at previous posts, it looks like he lead time is getting longer, not shorter.

Worth knowing it'll take 6 months if you've got plans to use your vehicle before that.

Nik :wink:

My confirmation email for ordering certificate was sent 23rd March, still waiting.......
As a note to some of you birth certificate not needed for registration, at least not a US import.
Customs/excise paperwork, title, and Mot. Oh and DVLA form

Mines a US import but not got the title so that's why I'm waiting for the birth cert, spoke with Dvla and they say I need the cert as no title :)

As a side question, how the hell did you guys get a bus out of the US without a title?
Your the second person I've come across who's managed this. Well done I say :-)

I didn't import the bus, I got it off a guy who does import them and didn't come with US title just import papers and receipt from when sold in the US :)
