Exporting a motorcycle from Turkey

First things first, thanks for having me in the forum.

After 5 years of living here, I've actually joined now I'm leaving Turkey, but I was hoping the good people here could help me, as I couldn't find the answer on here or google.

I have a motorcycle which I'm looking to take with me, either to Portugal or the UK.

It's second hand, bought in Turkey, now on M plates (was bought from a Turkish man).

I've had it more than a year now, and have done more than 6,000 km.

I understand I can import it tax free into either country, as long as I become a resident there.

But I don't understand the actual process.

I intend to ride it rather than ship it.

Do I just leave the country with a green card, register it in Portugal/ the UK, then fly back and go to a notary with the plates to cancel the registration?

Or do I need to apply in advance for export plates and then get insurance for the export plates?

TIA

Importing vehicles into the UK

https://www.gov.uk/importing-vehicle...ported-vehicle


If you’re importing a second-hand vehicle, you will not have to pay VAT if all the following apply:

VAT has already been paid in any EU country including the UK
the vehicle has been in use for more than 6 months
the vehicle has done more that 6,000km (about 3,728 miles)
