does any one know how to check if a NOVA certificate has been done ?

The Suzuki I am doing is supposed to have been registered and a NOVA number has been issued. I bought the bike from a shop and the advert clearly states that the bike has a nova cert, I have phoned the seller three times and each time he promises to send me the number.

I have tried ringing HMRC you go through all the options then it cuts you off.  Is there an online way to check this ?

I could agree with you, but then we would both be wrong

3. You purchased a vehicle, know its an import but you have no idea when it came to the UK, who imported it or who sold it in Italy.

This is the most common situation we come across. As NOVA is fairly new, tens of thousands of vehicles will have been imported at some point in the last 50+ years and many of them have not been registered yet. We have spoken with HMRC regarding this situation and the advice is to fill in as many details as possible on a paper NOVA form and send a covering letter explaining everything you know, for example who you purchased it from in the UK, any history you know, which country it was manufactured (eg Italy). Include your phone number in the letter and ask them to call you if they need any further information. This is a grey area with NOVA, but HMRC and DVLA require the vehicles to be NOVA'd before registration and it is becoming apparent there are a lot more of these grey area vehicles than first thought! On the occasions that I have spoken with HMRC regarding NOVA, they have been exceptionally helpful and if you are struggling, please do call them.

Thank you, looks like a fairly common problem . Trying to speak with someone at HMRC is a joke.
