Update your V5C online

Motorists who need to update the address details on their vehicle log book (V5C) can now do this online.

This will cut the amount of time it takes for motorists to receive a new log book from up to six weeks to five working days.

Last year DVLA received around 1.4 million paper applications for change of address on a vehicle record. By using the new service to change the address on the log book the information will be updated instantly and motorists will receive a new log book within five working days.

Using this new service, it takes less than two minutes for motorists to inform DVLA of their new address. All they need is their vehicle registration number, log book document reference number and their postcode.

DVLA chief executive Julie Lennard said: “We’re launching this service at a time when online services are becoming even more vital to help people get back on the road. This new online service is quicker and easier than sending your log book to DVLA so if you’ve just moved home try the service and see how simple it is.”

All of DVLA’s online services are available on GOV.UK.
