Hello,
Launched on 15 April 2013, Notification of Vehicle Arrivals (NOVA) is an online service which enables customers (VAT registered businesses, non-VAT registered businesses and private individuals) to notify HMRC about vehicles brought into the UK from abroad. It replaced a number of HMRC VAT and Customs paper forms.
You as a private individual may choose to use the HMRC online notification for NOVA or you can use an agent.
Here is the url for the HMRC page on registering to obtain the certificate you need:

Thank you for coming back and posting.
It appears that without the certificate DVLA will not register. It is not in the system as being from the UK as it was not registered prior to your purchase.
