Will changing my speedo and odometer raise alarm bells?


I may decide to import a car from Britain; as I would plan to keep it for a long time I would like to change the speedo and odometer to km/h. How would this affect the VRT inspection and the NCT? How can I record it that it was changed?

I do not want a scenario that it pops up on a car checking website as suspicious, but would like it to show that the speedo and odometer where changed at a specific mileage.

Hi Jerome,

I spoke to a representative from the National Car Test on your behalf who said that changing your speedometer or your odometer would not affect your NCT at all or the VRT inspection in any way.

I hope this helps
