Found this useful little tool which can inform the DVLA of change of vehicle ownership online. It auto generates a new V5 log book for the new owner and also cancels and refunds car tax back to you, as well as sending a confirmation letter of the change of ownership to you.gov.uk/sol…cle
Many may know about this but for the benefit of those that don't I thought it would be useful.
You will need:
Buyer and Sellers details
V5 11 digit number
Car Registration number
Date of sale of the car
Email addresses of both parties for confirmations
Really was very simple to do..
Once confirmed on the website you shred or destroy your V5
Saves at least the cost of a stamp so a deal in my eyes!
