One small reduction in red-tapeBack

Cut2Following centralisation of DVLA services to Swansea the Personalised Registrations and First Registration process changed to allow the DVLA records to be updated as a priority and the V5C Registration Certificate to be issued.

Early this year they issued a communication to Trade Associations to open a discussion around removing the V948 Number Plate Authorisation Certificate. The basis of this change was that the V5C is received a number of days before the V948 and can be used to have the number plate produced sooner.

The response from the motor trade was in favour of the changes so from the 1 October, the V948 will no longer be issued.

Alongside this change, the letter confirming the application has been accepted will be sent with the V5C produced following a First Registration and Personalised Registrations application.

In circumstances where the dealer or customer has used a V62 Application for a vehicle registration certificate, a V948 will need to be sent along with a letter explaining that a V5C will be sent under separate cover.
