And just to EASE anyone into the 21st. Century, and so you don't have to believe an 'Immigrant' and a 'Dumbo' (both of which I find offensive, I still have free movement across the EU and am certainly no ones 'dumbo') the below is from TISPOLS site, and in the public domain, its basically how it works across databases:


Police from six European countries will be taking part in Operation Trivium next week, targeting cross-border criminality seeking to deny criminals the use of the roads.
Coordinated by TISPOL (The European Traffic Police Network), officers from the UK, Ireland, Spain, the Netherlands, Lithuania, and Romania will be stopping vehicles and checking drivers' details with the purpose of making a significant impact on mobile criminality across Europe.
Operation Trivium 9 will take place from Monday 9 to Friday 13 October.
A special European Operations Control Centre, based at Europol headquarters in The Hague, will be operating throughout the week, providing officers with real-time information on individuals and vehicles who may be connected with crime. Participating countries (Irelands, Spain, Lithuania, Romania, the Netherlands and the UK) will all have their own control centres where information can be requested and shared.
Operation Trivium 9 is led for TISPOL by Superintendent Paul Keasey, who stresses the importance of international cooperation in fighting mobile criminality.
“We are once again committed to ensuring that borders hold no barriers when it comes to bringing about justice,” he says.
“We have a range of effective tactics to ensure that Trivium 9 will make a big contribution to safer, more secure roads, and in particular to protecting the most vulnerable members of society."
Operation Trivium was introduced by TISPOL (the European Traffic Police Network) and has grown to provide a consistently effective mechanism for disrupting criminal networks who are active in human trafficking, modern day slavery, illegal immigration and a wide range of other crimes.


Oh Boy, bet those FAX machines and card files are taking a pounding............., all those Countries involved.

That information is on the net and available to everybody as is insurance and MOT.
