We are heading "Up the Baltics" (oh missus the old ones are the best) in March so will keep you posted or answer any questions.

My big issue is about weight as we have been upplated to 38500 by SVtech(other options are available) This seems to mean a Go Box for parts of Poland and in Latvia. But there is no upplate on the van( I have not got round to fixing it yet) and I have a good copy of the V5 showing my thought is to just blag it as a 3500.........have no problem with the cost but the go box just seems too complicated.

I imagine if I look like 3500,show a V5 as 3500,and pay as a 3500 then unless they have weighing scales or a direct link to DVLA then all will be OK.
What do you think ........what actually happens when you buy a vignette at the border

Peter and Carmel

Spooky travelled with us for 5 years and over 20,000 miles.He died aged 11 and is buried in Delphi in Greece.
Now that's a great age and a great adventure for a rabbit and I think he deserves a mention.

The best things in Life...........................are not Things !!

Life is really, really great Ö...........sometimes it's a bit sh*t............and then you die !!

I guess it might, webby, but when you really NEED things to work (as in, when you're involved in an incident) you may be found wanting and might find your insurance invalid.

Personally, I wouldn't chance it.

Hello, I'm sorry that I did not answer you immediately, I did not see your question, but if the information is still relevant, I answer. paid roads only for commercial vehicle transport, we do not need to pay for traveling, weight is not limited.
