Moses was wondering in the desert for 40 years, so we are told. Can you imagine the state of his mind in that hot desert. Naturaly he ... saw the burning bush !! God spoke to him !! He, mythology tells us, wrote the most fundamental book that billions of people the world over still believe in.
That this super power, auto created, had managed in just 6 days to create the entire universe, the skies, the billions of stars and galaxies, the sun the earth the moon. So tired he became that on the 7th day he ....rested. what absolute nonsense what pure mythology.
By the way, once this super creator created man by dirtying his hands with soil and ...spitting on it, then he said to his allmighty self, man I dont want to dirty my hands again .. so he chopped off a rib from Adam, no anaesthetic used obviously, and created the woman . Gave her a pair of tits a pussy and the most sophisticated reproductive system , also gave her a ...mouth !!!
What a load of crap !!

After 2 years, eventually I have been given "duty free" status on my Jaguar. I had to provide my UK bank statements going back 4 years before my departure. Also statements from my Cyprus bank along with "solid" proof that Im now a resident in Cyprus. The whole process was apparently the " law" , however I must state that my 2 monthly visits to Limassol customs in order to renew the extension was always met with much help and professionalism.
I can now apply for my Cypriot plates, at the same time I have applied for a Cypriot driving license which presumably will allow me to ignore red traffic lights, dispense with indicators and of course I shall now make use of my mobile whilst driving and having a tiropita at the same time !! It is indeed an honour to become a Cypriot licensed driver !!!

I first went to the Limassol customs and was instructed to visit the Department Of Registration of vehicles in order to obtain an emissions certificate. A very pleasant, Boris Johnstone lookalike, only with much longer hair welcomed me and very quickly
issued the required Emissions certificate, Ribus in Greek, I think. He showed me where to go on being asked, for application to obtain a Cyprus driving license.
A man from Paphos, the ...salt of the earth, gave me a form to fill and told me that I needed to visit a doctor for a medical since I was .....a young over 72 years old.
I drove back to Limassol customs and on finding my clearance agent, a lively friendly chap i was asked to bring my Jag at the front as a customs officer had to record the Chassis number. Where is it he asked. I haven't the faintest idea I responded. I check the oil, the water but I have never had the need to check the Chassis number.
4 or 5 " experts" arrived and found that the Chassis number would be somewhere in the boot. Well they checked for around 30 minutes to no avail, Someone suggested that a plate welded to the side was to ....hide the C.NO. No I screamed. I have been the owner of the owner of the car from new. The " expert" suggested that the welded plate could have been used if the car had been in a crash. No I said.
The customs officer, a very helpful guy suggested I go back to the Vehicle Registration dep. And ask them to locate the CN. Gave me a further extension to May 5th and i drove home.
The vehicle book gave no info in where this wretched number could be found.....
Will continue, my glass needs filling !!

Otherwise, perhaps this might help:

Thanks mate, but the Vehicle Identification Number is not the same as the Chassis Number and customs will not accept this as apparently it's removable where as the CN is engraved on to the car. Someone told me that if a car is stolen in the UK and brought into Cyprus the theives go to great lengths to hide the Chassis Number !!
Well, I came home and searched good old google and indeed the CN was in the boot offside side. I removed the" carpet " easily done, and Bingo, there was the Chassis no. Engraved on the righr hand side of the body.
I will return to customs after Easter and re assure them that I .....did not steal my car !!!!

Many people berate the Cypriot civil servants but barring one or two glaring exceptions, mostly receptionists, and the vast majority of civil servants have been that, civil and providing a service, professional and friendly.

I must in all honesty say that I have not as yet encountered any rudeness or animosity from anyone in Cyprus, well there was one actually, a lady solicitor, apparently she somehow objected to been called a ...fucking stupid woman. Can you believe that !!! All in all I have been treated by all in a respectful manner, some even call me .....sir !!!

My UK driving licence expires on May 8th this year, a day before my 73rd birthday.
As I do not intend to drive in the UK , I applied for a Cypriot licence and was given a form to complete which required a medical. My brother took me to a local Doctor and after waiting for around 30 minutes we were called in.
A very pleasant man, who immediately put me at ease. I handed him the form and he begun the examination.
1. Ise kala ? ( are you well )
Me: kallitera pou sena yiatre ( better than you doc. ( I have diabetis and cancer )
2. Thoris kala ? ( Is your eyesight good )
Me: kallitera pou sena yiatre.( Im as ...blind as a bat )
3. I esthisis sou en endaxi ( are your senses ok)
Me: kallitera pou sena yiatre. ( ...... ??)
Ok he said as he signed and stamped the form.
How much I asked. 20 euros he responded.
Well I was impressed, the doc could see I was a ....healthy man and above all a good sensible careful driver.
