Can I return an exported car back to the UK?

About 11 years ago I exported my second-hand car to Croatia. I now want to return to the UK. Can I drive my car back to the UK legally?

If it's still on UK plates you'll have a problem when you disembark in the UK. if it's on Croation plates then you need to insure it in Croatia, then re-import it to the UK where it will have to undergo an MoT, then be re-allocated UK plates and insured and taxed for use in the UK.
