Lost your V5C? Don’t panic – here’s what to do.
You can apply for a new V5C by phone or post. Replacing a lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed V5C will set you back £25.
You can apply by post by filling in a V62 form, or over the phone if none of your details have changed.
If you bought a car and never received the V5C, you’ll not need to pay the £25 fee. To get a new V5C in this instance, you’ll have to apply by post by sending off a V62 and the V5C/2 – that’s the green ‘new keeper’ slip.
You can sell or scrap your car even if you don’t have the V5C. Just send a signed letter to DVLA outlining the vehicle’s registration number, make, model, the date of sale and the new keeper’s details.
