What's a Certificate of Conformity?

A Certificate of Conformity (COC) is granted for a motorcycle when it meets a minimum set of regulatory, technical and safety requirements. You’ll need this certificate if you want to export your bike overseas.

If your motorcycle was registered after 2001 and was originally registered for the UK market you should be able to apply using your VIN. This can be posted directly to you, free of charge.

Update: Please note if your vehicle has already been issued with a Certificate of Conformity, in order to receive a duplicate certificate there will be a charge of €175 (£157.32) to cover the administrative costs. If you are unsure if the Certificate is a duplicate or not, please request the Certificate and we will be in touch with you if payment is required.

How to get one

Update: To get your COC, please visit the following link and follow the instructions: https://tinyurl.com/y2kh9g6j

You can expect to receive your certificate within five to seven working days.

SEE FOR YOURSELF.


Here is the official site of London’s ULEZ vehicle checker, for those who might wish to confirm the current status of their bike.

A guy on another ‘Bird site said he e-mailed Honda with his VIN and copy of V5 and they sent him the Certificate of Conformity. I’m looking forward, hopefully, for the same response.

Meanwhile, if they change the compliance rules to exclude all except Euro3 certificated vehicles the Blackbird won't comply, as the bike’s hydrocarbon emissions are more than double the Euro3 level.

The Congestion Charge is £11.50 per day

The ULEZ Charge is £11.50 per day

There’s also a daily Low Emissions Zone (LEZ) Charge for HGV’s

I'm sure all these charges will disappear, once the air is deemed to be "clean" by the powers-that-be (NOT!) :mad:

That will show all birds as fail- in those days, dvla didn't put emmissions values for bikes on V5. No value=auto fail. Deeper into the site, they quote actual values. If your cert of conformity shows below these, you can appeal against their finding. I'm in the process now and will update when I get an answer.

My Certificate of Conformity arrived this afternoon.

Evidently, while the Blackbird’s emissions were designed to meet Euro
Level 2limits, it also meets the Euro Level 3 NOx limits as required by TfL.

I’m not sure about the HC limit, though. It’s high on the ‘Bird, but that might be because the
Euro Level 3 test eliminates the engine warm-up period (Source: The Automobile Association).

Just have to wait for Krisbiker, now: hope it all ends well! :thumb: :D

D'A,

Great you've set this up. I'm on an original '97 carb bird. Really don't want to swap to another bike so if the FIs pass my compromise will be to switch to one and transfer all my mods/ upgrades where I can. That would be my best bet re very tight budget!

Awaiting K's news with fingers crossed.

Cheers Mallow1

This is perhaps really good news! I have to travel into the 2021 ULEZ and assumed my 2001 Fi model wouldn't meet the requirements. Maybe there is still hope!

The inner one starts this year. It then expands to N&S circular later, so don't hang around- my orig had cats, don't know if not having will tip the balance the wrong way if yours hasn't, I'd suggest you investigate sooner rather than later. Am going to look into if V5 can have them added as I suspect London will sooner or later be followed by other places wanting to make an easy income

To all those waiting with baited breath, today I received an email confirming my 2005 fi is exempt and they would update their database
Whilst I have no intention on riding through London I'm just wondering on one thing. If a bike as standard conforms what happens if you modify it by say fitting a supercharger?
