You can now get a duplicate log book (V5C) online. Using the new online service is much quicker and easier than sending a paper application.
The new online service launched this week by DVLA can slash the time it takes to receive a duplicate log book (V5C) from 6 weeks to just 5 days.
The ‘Get a vehicle log book (V5C)’ service is the latest DVLA online service.
This is the second online service DVLA has launched in the last 4 months, following the change address on vehicle log book service which was launched in June and has been used more than 300,000 times.
Julie Lennard, DVLA Chief Executive, said: “DVLA’s new online service to apply for a duplicate log book is quick and easy to use and means customers who have unfortunately either lost or damaged theirs will receive their new document within a matter of days”.
Dealers who need to apply for a duplicate (V5C) log book should go online to https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-log-book. It costs £25 for a duplicate log book whether you go online or apply by post.
