Where is the OP actually up to with this process anyway? Any actual developments that can be broadcast?

I think waiting on DVLA for the next step ?  :-\

That is pretty much it
Sent for v5 with just chassis number, receive letter back saying there is a problem and wanting a built up vehicle report.
Emailed them stating a report was not needed as it was an existing vehicle.
Vin to reg provided a registration matching the vin.
Emailed dvla to add the registration to my application
Google image search brings up the blue buggy picture, which has led to the club contacting the owner of that buggy, and informing them what is happening
Yes it is a total fuster cluck
But has now reached the long wait for officialdom to go through the motions, so any advancement could be a long time coming

Try and keep the Blue Buggy away from any DVLA intervention as that will seriously confuse things

All down to dvla now, I have no control or influence over anything.
I presume the way this will unfold is
Dvla will contact blue buggy about the registration, which I assume they will want to keep
Dvla will want an inspection of both vehicles
Dvla will make a decision

Or maybe something entirely different

Still not heard back from dvla, so have sent an email to them enquiring if anything is happening regarding my v5 application.
So as updates go this is pretty pathetic,

I wasn't aware that DVLA took any notice of emails or phone calls. I thought they were still just geared up for the written word :-\

The letter they sent to me, about a month ago requesting additional information, included the option to communicate via e-mail

Prior to lockdown, if you could get a nominated caseworker on board, it was certainly possible (but not easy) to track them down and chat with them by phone - however, with most of them working from home now, I`m not sure how possible this is at the moment
