Hi Chaps,

I SORNed the Maser last winter because I wasn't in the country, have just gone to tax it, and can't find the V5 anywhere....

Have also decided to change it for something new, so really need to get a replacement V5 ASAP so that I can get my hands on a new toy.

In the past, I've been up to the local DVLA office, where they can do cherished transfers over the counter, rather than the normal 4-6 week malarky, does anybody know if it's possible to get a V5 from them in the same way?

I would call, but the DVLA 'phone system is a creature of terror!

Still have to wait a couple of weeks to get a V5 from Swansea on personalised plates

Don't think they hand out V5's over the counter.

99% certain you have to apply for it.

Well, did some digging, and found out that applying by phone would receive the doc in a handful of days, applying by post may take weeks.

Went through the phone system with some trepidation, but the very helpful chap who I finally got through to processed it within about a minute, relieved me of £25, and told me it should be on the doorstep within 3-5 days. I'm off until Monday anyway, so it should be waiting for me when I get home.

Not worth the 1 1/2 hour round trip to the local office after all, I'll save that journey for the reg transfer!

I moved house and couldn't find the V5 for one of my cars. So I sent off the Change on one and on the missing one sent the relevant missing V5 form and the cheque for replacement.

The missing one came back first, within a week. confused
