Replacing a lost or stolen registration document or certificate

If your registration document or certificate has been lost, stolen or destroyed, you will need to get a replacement from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). You can make an application by post or you may be able to get a replacement over the telephone.

Applying by post

You can get a replacement registration certificate (V5C) by completing a vehicle registration certificate application form V62 which you can get by download from the link below or at any licence issuing Post Office® branch or DVLA local office. Return the form and the fee of £20.00 to DVLA, Swansea SA99 1DD.

If your personal details have changed, you can notify them on the V62 application form.

DVLA will aim to deliver a new registration certificate to you within four weeks of receiving your application. However, please allow six weeks before contacting DVLA.

Applying by telephone

If you have previously had a registration document or certificate for your vehicle in your name, and there is no change in vehicle or personal details, you may apply for a duplicate registration certificate over the telephone. You should contact DVLA customer enquiries (vehicles) on 0870 240 0010. A fee of £20 is payable. You will need a debit or credit card for the payment. You will receive the registration certificate within 10 working days.
