Question out of interest if I may?
I imported my wife's French registered car a couple of years ago, which was no problem at all, and I drove it myself to our home here in the UK - all on French plates.
You say that, in your case, you were introduced to your driver and then proceded to Calais, on Belgian trade plates. I take it that the Belgian driver then left you in Calais and took his trade plates back with him?
If so, how did you get on driving the van from Dover all the way home, without number plates of any kind? Or, if you kept the trade plates, why did you have a Belgian driver?
