V5 dvla issues

Recommended Posts

Anyone else having V5 issues. Bought two personal vehicles one in August and a bike about 6 weeks ago. No V5 for either yet, I even filled out a V62 and send the V5C for the  car five or so weeks ago.  Still nothing has arrived.

7 weeks it took for me to get my last V5. Just not good enough in 2020.

Keep checking on https://vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk/  and one day it will show it has been issued then expect it in the post a few days later

Same as everyone else, did speak to them eventually - basically if it has to be manually processed its just in a pile, eventually gets done - but you just have to wait....they won't do anything other than tell you to wait....

I wish I had the same problems. I brought one off a customer and held off the transfer to trade until my finance payment cleared to her....somehow without the V5 she managed to put me down as the owner and the log book was in my name within 10 days. DVLA have then fined me for the car not being taxed despite a letter to them explaining.

She did it online and put you down as a new civilian keeper... 

.....but without a V5?

It’s the ‘Covid inertia’ effect?

Not even civilian. Down as the company name. I have no idea how. I had the v5 and gave her the yellow slip for peace of mind. Luckily I have sold it to one of my dads customers who wasn’t about the owner but it’s a b@ll ache to get the fine back.

Im pretty sure she wasn’t hiding anything. 20ish young woman. I checked her ID. I paid her finance after getting the settlement of Fiat when she was there. All very odd

maybe she played the key worker approach 

thinking on I sorned one of my cars for winter and the refund for the tax was in my company name ,previous times itsalways been my name,probablysomething to do with dvla workers working from home as many still are

Seems DVLA have upped their game. Just received notification (within 2.5 weeks of submitting an application) that they are to issue my V5 next week. Hopefully they have got on top of the back log and back to somewhat normal processing times

If you are applying for a V5 a letter has to be sent out to the previous registered keeper.

If they do not reply within 6 weeks a new V5 issued.

Customer probably had a copy with the doc reference number and wanted to get her tax back.

On the plus side had to manually send a private plate transfer in to Dvla. Back within 7 days

The DVLA  are definitely on the ball lately.   Did a plate transfer and got the new v5 in 3 days.  Also sent a v62 off and got the new v5 within 5 days.

All the v5 we are doing online , for new customers,  seem to be issued with a week
