DVSA - Change Address on V5C online

22 Jun 2020

 

DVLA launches online service to change address on vehicle log book (V5C)

With the housing market opening up across the UK post lockdown, motorists who need to update the address details on their vehicle log book (V5C) can now do this online in a matter of minutes, DVLA has announced today. This will slash the amount of time it takes for motorists to receive a new log book from up to 6 weeks to just 5 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 5 working days.

Using this new service, it takes less than 2 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.
