DVLA have now launched a new online service where you can now change your address on a vehicle log book (V5C). Originally it used to take motorists to receive a new log book was up to six weeks, the new online service will cut the amount down to just five working days.
DVLA announced this because all of the housing market is opening up all across the UK, motorists are moving address and details need to be changed. You can now go online at https://change-address-v5c.service.gov.uk/ and do this in a matter of minutes. It will only take less than two minutes for drivers to inform DVLA of the new address. You will need the vehicle registration number, logbook document reference number and 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 logbook to DVLA by post, so if you’ve just moved home try the service and see how simple it is”.
Once the customers have used the online service to change the address they will receive an email confirming that they must destroy their old logbook. Motorists can already update the address on their driving license record online and the new service will enable them to now update their vehicle record online. Along with the existing vehicle management system, which allows to tell DVLA they’ve sold a vehicle, this online service will be available between 7am and 7pm everyday.
