    exactly what I was looking for – thankyou

    This was extremely useful, thanks very much. Only question I have (if you can answer), the details on the V5 form for the receiving vehicle are for the previous owner. Do I need to update all these details to my own when sending in all the documents to DVLA?

    Hi mystikev, yes you need to complete the New Keeper section (section 6) on the V5, and sign section 8. Then submit with other docs…DVLA will update the registration number and keeper details at the same time.

    That’s great, thank you for the info 🙂

    Hi, what details go in section 3 of the v317 form, is it the traders details or my details.

  7. Pete. Jamieson

    Great…much easier than ploughing through the DVLA instructions.

    What do you do now there is no mot certificate or tax disc?

    what happens about the insurance?  What plate is kept on the car until you transfer the new one to the new car?  How many times do you have to alter your insurance details if it takes 10 days to register the new plate on the new car? What a mess!
