Importing a car and DAV

I moved to Portugal from the UK in November 2020 bringing my car with me. I started the DAV process before the end of 2020. I now have a message on the DAV part of the FinancasPortal asking, among other things, for: (a) citizens card; and (b) "HT with national homologation number".

I had already uploaded both the CRUE and also the subsequent SEF document with QR code acknowledging my application for the biometric card. I have also uploaded the category B inspection certificate.  

So I am seeking clarification:

(a) I thought the SEF document is as far as I can go until I get the biometric card. Is not the citizens card something you apply for after 5 years residency?

(b) What is HT? and is the homologation number not the same as that on the category B inspection certificate? 

Any relevant advice would be welcome. 

kind regards, Mark
