Getting a duplicate V5

How is it to get a new V5 if a vehicle you buy hasn't got one? I read somewhere that it costs 25. Is that correct? Presumably you have to prove to the DVLA that the vehicle is the one you say it is with chassis numbers or something.

Has anyone done this before?

Go to the PO and get a V62 ( i think that's the one) and fill it in with your details plus the VIN no. of the vehicle. It's not made difficult as DVLA are very keen to have all keeper details.

V5

Hi Tim, getting a repacement V5 is a nightmare.

I work in the car trade & will not buy or take in a px without a V5, to much agro!

The DVLA changed the procedure a couple of years ago.

You can only get a repacement V5 if the DVLA have had the trade part of the V5 sent back to them to inform them it has gone to the car trade, it then takes about six weeks to get a new one, and I think you're right it is 25.

If the trade part has not been sent back, you would have to get the previous owner to apply for a replacement, who then would have to forward onto you.

If you want my advice, don'y buy a vehicle without the V5.

Hope this helps, any more info send me a pm.

Tim.

Thanks chaps. I was just having a read on direct.gov.uk about it. It sounds quite simple. My potential situation is as follows: I am looking at buying a very cheap "project". The owner bought it at a salvage auction and has decided not to finish it off. I'm interested but its got no V5. I don't think he's ever had one since he bought it.

V62 does seem to be the right form.........I think.

I was 'in the trade', but that was a few years ago. Getting a V5 was a P in the A for a trader as one didn't want to become the 'registered keeper' or add another keeper to the V5. If I was flogging something minus a V5 I used to sell it with a part filled in V62 for the buyer to send off with just their details to fill in. The potential buyer could ring DVLA and quote the reg to re-assure themselves that the thing is ligit and get some info re. the vehicle.
If things have changed in the last two years, the above might be bollocks.

Tim I may be completely wrong as I have never written off a car or repaired one that was - but I wonder if a written off car actually still has a V5 at all (i.e. is it not returned to swansea when its written off). That may make getting a new v5 a different process.

I think the V5 will stay with the car until it is scrapped then DVLA will need to be informed of that. I've owned a written off car by buying it from the insurance company who wrote it off. It's often just a financial decision for them re. repair cost against payout to settle the claim. After repair, when reinsuring it, the insurer wanted a report from an engineer and a new MOT test pass. I believe written off cars will be recorded on a register somewhere but I could be wrong about that.
Many years ago I bought one from a scrap yard and they had the registration document. That was pre the V5 though but I guess the system will still be similar.

Tim, what exactly is the project and why doesn't it come with a V5? There's all sorts of answers to how hard it is to get one depending on what the vehicle actually is/has happened to it.

Its no longer going to be a problem as its now more than I wanted to pay. Its a three wheeled van. The story goes it was bought at a salvage auction but never got finished. It hasn't been in an accident - the windows are missing and the engine doesn't start.

If that's a Reliant you'll find them for free if you look. Scrapmen won't take them as it costs too much to dipose of the bodyshell.
