Sell Portugal lhd cars in UK
Local dealers are protected by the Portuguese authorities, and taxation is applied heavily to imported cars when they are not low in CO2 emissions.
Portuguese-registered cars are difficult to find but are not impossible. Expats from PORTUGAL are often offering us LHD models of their cars when they return to the UK. So, in the event we can't provide our customers with the ideal Portuguese car in the UK or Portugal, we recommend they import a UK-registered LHD car to PORTUGAL and register it there. Below, you'll find the required information.
Over the past ten years, we have delivered hundreds of vehicles to PORTUGAL. PORTO and Lisbon are 300 GBP and 150 GBP for the ALGARVE, respectively. You will be covered by UK distant sales regulations if you purchase a car through our sales and registration scheme.
Why should you choose MY LHD CAR PORTUGAL?
Our suggestion is to import a registration from the UK and to register it as a Left Hand Drive. This process is relatively complicated and time-consuming in Portugal, therefore, we recommend the import. To learn more about our sales and registration scheme in the United Kingdom please visit our sales and registration page, and click HERE.

Searching in the UK for Portuguese-registered cars
It is possible to find Portuguese-registered cars in the UK. In all likelihood, there isn't an easy way to do it: you'll need to monitor the above websites for signs of Portuguese license plates.
There are predominantly UK, French, or Spanish plates on LHD cars in the UK. Then there are cars from central and eastern European countries (e.g. Germany and Belgium), as well as vehicles from the Americas (e.g. Brazil and Italy). It does pop up occasionally to see cars with Portuguese plates, but they are rare. You may need to spend a few months searching for something like this if that's exactly what you're seeking.

Is my car required to be imported into Portugal?
You should import your foreign-registered car if you are staying in another EU country for more than six months. Most ex-pats in Portugal (and other countries such as France and Spain) do not have access to public transportation.
It's up to you whether you purchase insurance or not, but at the very least, you need to have it. If your car is registered in the UK, you'll need to purchase car insurance from a UK company.
Insurance companies cannot simply be chosen at random. In most cases, you can only get European cover up to six months at a time, unless you are a member of Saga (for over 50s) or a specialist insurance broker. The problem isn't apparent if you spend a significant amount of time in the UK. You will need either Saga or a specialist car insurance company if you are planning to spend longer outside of the UK.
