Ireish log book

Steve C

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a xk8 1998 that is registered in Ireland and I am trying to re-register her in France. To do this I need a C.O.C. so asked Jaguar land rover for one. They refused to issue one saying the car had been "modified beyond the point of manufacture" . I asked what the modification was and they said the log book lists seating as 3 . I contacted Ireland to ask if the log book had a misprint and could they issue one listing seating as 4 . they said at the point of registration 1998 (new) the information was correct? Can anyone have a look at there log book and tell me how many seats they have listed. The car is totally standard . Best regards and thanks in advance Steve.

On my 1998 XK8 the " Number Of Seats Including Driver " is left blank, no entry at all. This is in both the Vehicle Details and New Keepers Details sections of the V5. It is the same on the V5 for my other car, so it would seem that the Irish " V5," or their equivalent, is different so I can't help. Maybe any Irish members on here could comment and help you.

Thanks for the info. If I get to the bottom of this I will update.

Please do Steve, will be interested to hear the outcome.


I don't have copies of any of my long sold cars Log Books but I do seem to think that the Number Of Seats on these older log books did have entries, or am I just going senile ? !  To try and reassure myself I've just googled Number of Seats issue and the only definite comment I can find is that some V5's do have number of seats listed and some don't. I can't find any reason why this so I remain, as ever, terminally confused........
