Can someone kindly please inform me where exactly on a V5 registration certificate any details of a cat C or D insurance write-off are recorded?

Obliged much.

Is that section 3 Special notes?

I don't see an 'Additional notes' section.

Unless they have changed it with the new style, it used to be on the front page where it usually says "declared new at registration" or something along those lines.

Thanks for that.

So I presume if that section makes no reference to cat C/D damage then the vehicle does not have this issue?

I've just had one back for the E36. No such notes on it, still just "Declared new at first registration".

My cat D car makes no mention anywhere.

Sorry it is special notes. It doesn't always show up on the V5 though. My Puma that was Cat-C repaired had a note on the V5, but my van which showed up on the HPI check as Cat-C stolen recovered has nothing on the V5.

Did not know that! Just out of curiosity, why is that?

Not sure that's a valid presumption: I wouldn't rely on it. I know the history of MrsC's runabout, and it may well have been a Cat C/D in the past but there's nothing on the V5. Best to check properly.

Cat D is not recorded on log book.
Cat C should be (bottom left of V5).

I've no personal knowledge of this but isn't there a process whereby the vehicle can be inspected by VOSA who then issue a certificate for DVLA which enables the car to be properly recorded as "live" in the database?

Only for vehicles recorded as CatA. CatB or CatC. CatD vehicles dont have to go through a VIC (Vehicle Identity Check) and their status isnt recorded on the V5C.

You say you know the history, but don't know if it's been written off by the insurance?
