Have you done a vehicle history check and an MoT check?

If your car turns up on there than they do have a record

45 mins on the phone this morning to Swansea, regarding a vehicle I've lost the log book for. I've an rf60, the new book has been mislaid somewhere, i have a tax disc and an mot from within the last 10 years, i have a sorn acknowledgment from 4 years ago, the current address same as old address, and they claim to have no record of this registration.

Seriously I'm bloody heartbroken I could cry.


sounds a bit strange, the only time cars vanish like this off the dvla is if they have been scrapped as the record becomes null

Thanks Stuart, but it's not there. Like it's never existed, and they kept asking if i was giving the correct registration. So i have to join a club, get inspection, provide evidence etc etc.

Silly me making the assumption it was all computerised and it would be on the system. Well, it is on the system since they sent a sorn or tax reminder regularly up until recently.

And, not being in the mainland just makes it a bigger pain.

Is there a way of finding a cars registration mark through DVLA by using just its chassis number?

You can rest assured mate that with the evidence/paperwork you have you'll definately get your V5 back. PMd you.

Thanks Pete, i suppose it is better than finding out your reg is on another vehicle, as happened before. Renault Megan coupe my ass. Inside job at county hall i believe but never heard of a prosecution.

Only issue is if its in bits and then you'd have to wait until it at least looked complete before you'd get a V5C, but as Pete says, you WILL get one either sooner or later. :)
