If he has sent the V5C off to DVLA but they haven't received or processed it yet, it will still be taxed.....technically.


You don't even have to send off the V5C now, it can all be done on line, and you destroy the old V5C.


Didn't realise that BUT, I'd say in that case the tax would automatically be cancelled and a refund issued

Copied from relevant DVLA page

Sold your vehicle to a private individual or business
You need the 11 digit reference number from the latest vehicle log book (V5C).

Give the green ‘new keeper’s details’ slip (V5C/2) from the log book to the buyer.
Tell DVLA you’ve sold the vehicle using this service.
Destroy the rest of the log book.
Tell DVLA

You can take the registration number off the vehicle if you want to keep it. You must do this before you tell DVLA you sold your vehicle.

What happens next
You’ll be sent:

an email confirmation (if you gave your email address)
a letter confirming you’re no longer the keeper of the vehicle
a refund cheque for any full months left on your vehicle tax, calculated from the date DVLA gets your information - if you pay by Direct Debit, it’ll be cancelled automatically
The buyer must tax the vehicle before driving it, or declare that it’s off the road (a SORN). The tax is not transferred when the vehicle is sold.

The new keeper should get:

an email confirmation (if you gave their email address)
a new log book within 5 working days
Other ways to apply
Fill in the log book and post it to DVLA. You’ll get a letter within 4 weeks confirming you’re no longer the keeper of the vehicle.

If you do not have a log book you must write to DVLA with the:

vehicle registration number
make and model
exact date of sale
name and address of the new keeper
Your notification can be rejected if you do not give all the information. This will also affect any vehicle tax refund you’re owed.

DVLA

Not trusting the authorities, I'd take the Passat if it were me :lol:
